I think we could definitely trade back this year....but with a twist. Picking up a 2nd round pick and a veteran player. I was going to do a mock like this, and maybe I will.

Two ideas that jump out to me are:

Cardinals trade up from their 2nd rounder to our 1st rounder to take the QB they like and give us DT Darnell Dockett.

or

Vikings trade up from their 2nd rounder to our 1st round to take a "true" WR like Keenan Allen or Justin Hunter and get rid of Percy Harvin in the process for what they consider good value.

We'd be going all in on 3-wide sets, and it may be too much $$ invested in the position. But if TG is gone, we could use money on the slot WR instead of on the TE and take a rookie TE later on. Basically Percy replaces TG instead of a TE replacing him -- our offense would change minorly. I like this a lot. It also allows us down the line to have Julio and Percy when Roddy is done. But that 3 WR set (4 WR set with HD is also great) is better than Green Bay's. Green Bay did a similar thing over the last year basically phasing out Jermichael and phasing in Randall Cobb -- we can do the same thing.

I appreciate your mock, but I speculate it is more likely we trade up by packing some of our later picks to a team like the Colts who only have their 1st, 3rd, and 4th this year. they need more picks while ATL needs fewer picks for our roster. we need high quality players, not bodies.

Your out of your mind. We need as much talent as possible. We don't need to be trading up again. We need a real influx of young talent badly. Your not paying attention to the team

at this point, and draft that doesnt have the te from ND,"if tony retires" or a rushing specialist like DE or OLB i dont want it it sorry. I dont think OG should be the first pick in whatever round we start out!

Have you seen Kelce play? There is a ton of depth at TE and we can address that spot later.

Ok maybe your not understanding... i am a huge draft guy, as a falcon fan for 25 years. I think we would all agree the the ND TE is the only first round talent yes? Did i say there wasnt other te's in this draft? no, did i say we couldnt get one later? no. Part of the problem is that the falcons have not hit on sure fire first and 2nd round talent over the years. further more we have a worse record hitting on the 3rd and 4th rounders. Did you watch how big TG is in this offense? Do you think this other guy can be that? If he could he would be rated in the 1st wouldnt he? The answer is is yes!!!! Not saying hes not good, not saying he cant play, but the chances that he will turn out as the ND TE is prob not that great. So going back to what i said originally. i want guys that a BIG impact in the first few rounds!!! I want spoon, i want julio, i want ryan! I want impact.

Why does everyone like the 49ers D, giants D, cause they draft impact players at the important positions. I dont want a freaking guard in the first or second. Teams that do that just ok never are great!!! i want greatness here! there really should only ever be a few positions drafted in the first round over and over, de,cb,ot,qb, with the occasional guy that you go up and grab specifically every once and awhile because hes one of the best at those positions in a long time, like a julio! Which is once again why i said i would only go after eifert, or a a impact rush player!

Now you understand my thinking and we dont have to have this discussion for the next 3 months!

In 2010 the 49ers took a G in the first but anyway I don't see Eifert as a impact TE just in my opinion. I think you can get a dude like Kelce in the third and it not be that hugely of a talent gap.

Your acting like eifert is a sure fire hall of famer. I don't really like him as much as others. Hate to break it to you but the lines are as big an impact position as any. You have to protect your QB because he is the biggest impact player, get it. Don't care how long you think you have been a " draft guy" . There is no assurance that Eifert isn't a bust. There isn't that great a disparity between the first and third round talent at TE for me to warrant wasting a first round pick on TE. I'm sure TD feels the same way

Exactly. He is not a Tony G or a Gates. He is a very good TE like Rudolph IN 2011. I rather bolster the lines or get a guy who can rush the passer in the first.
