Can the 49er's help the Bucs? Apr 9 2014, 3:52pmIts been a busy free agency for the Tampa Bay Bucs, acquiring roughly 20 players these past couple months. One thing mentioned from Lovie and Licht that this will be a new team, once they hit the field in 2014. Another phrase that we hear repeatedly is how the Bucs only have 5 draft picks this year. Licht and Lovie are looking for good fits, not necessarily the best player.I personally believe that the Bucs (Licht) want more draft picks and that its a necessity for him to trade down in this years draft. So I have been trying to think of the best team for them to trade with and I personally believe its the San Francisco 49er's (#30 pick). Now lets be realistic, the value with that #30 pick compared too the #7 is night and day but lets look how much ammunition the 49er's have down below.1. First round – No. 30 overall2. Second round – No. 56 overall (from the Kansas City Chiefs)3. Second round – No. 61 overall4. Third round – No. 77 overall (from the Tennessee Titans)5. Third round – No. 94 overall6. Third round – No. 100 overall (compensatory) 7. Fourth round – No. 129 overall 8. Fifth round - No. 170 overall9. Seventh round – No. 242 overall (from the New Orleans Saints)10. Seventh round – No. 243 overall (from the Carolina Panthers)11. Seventh round – No. 245 overallNow as we all know the 49er's are one of the team's that has a lot of depth and has been constantly close of getting to the Superbowl for the past 3 years. This year there biggest need is WR and being in a division that has lock down corners they need a dominate wide receivers such as Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans. I can possibly see them loading a bunch of there picks such as swapping #1, acquire both #2, and a #4. This would allow Tampa to still acquire the guard position, WR, LB, TE, or whatever they feel is needed. We won't get the best players but good fits for our system that we can start right away or provide depth.Yes there will be other trade down offers as well but I feel like 49er's are a team that may want to get a dynamic offensive player to compete in this years Superbowl.http://www.bucsnation.com/2014/4/9/5598438/can-the-49ers-help-the-bucs
No way to that trade.Next years 1st this years 1st and early 2nd and early 3rd. Not a lot of leeway there either. TWe would be trading back to almost the 2nd round from no.7. And their 1st next year will be no.30 or so again. If Mike Evans is there I could see them wanting to trade up but they need to pay up. They can build a dynasty again but it is going to cost them. And I dont see them doing this deal for any other player. Evans and Kap would be completely unstoppable. Meanwhile, Sammy would not be able to get off the LOS vs. Seattle lol.I have no idea how anyone with eyeballs could pick Watkins over Evans ... it will forever be a mystery ... right up there with the schmucks who thought Suh was going to be a better 3 technique than McCoy. Sheeeeeeeeiiiiiiii!!! ????
am I missing something here? San Fran has anquan boldin and michael crabtree. Are they no longer there or something? WR is not their biggest need. As far as trading with them, no way! The head scratcher is why would they trade up that high for something that they don’t need. Just my thoughts.

Boldin is def on the back side of his career. The thing you are probably missing is that SF is already a really deep and talented team. They have more draft picks than they have realistic roster spots up for grabs. They have the luxury of being able to move up to get someone they covet...thats where the speculation is coming from. Not that they WILL, but that they COULD with their situation.
The 49ers almost surely will be trading up. It might as well be with us… ;D Looking at the ol' chart, their 1st, both 2nds, first 3rd, and their 4th would work. That would also give us plenty of ammo to move back up if we chose to...
