What will a San Francisco 49ers team already loaded with young talent do
with more 2013 draft picks than can possibly make their roster?



Three words: Pursue Darrelle Revis.




The 49ers are among a handful of teams that have discussed making a run
at Revis this offseason, according to two sources. In fact, the 49ers
are poised to make a run at Revis even if it’s just for one season
(although that could be problematic from Revis’ standpoint).




The bottom line is that if the New York Jets are serious about
retooling their roster as quickly as possible, getting a fistful of
picks from the 49ers could be a fine answer.




And if history is any indicator, the 49ers will be more than willing.




201302211733632284720-p2.jpgDarrelle Revis missed most of the past season after suffering a knee injury in Week 3. (AP)From
a pragmatic standpoint, the 49ers would be silly not to think about
dealing most of their draft picks this year, even if only to get future
selections. San Francisco, which already has 11 selections in April's
draft, are expected to get another one in the trade that reportedly will send
Alex Smith to the Chiefs. The Niners are also projected to get three
more selections as compensation for players they lost in free agency
last offseason. So based on the current roster, they would not be
expected to go overboard in the draft.




Of the 53 players on the roster going into the Super Bowl, seven were
guys with 10 years experience or more, including kicker David Akers,
guard Leonard Davis, linebacker Clark Haggans, long snapper Brian
Jennings and wide receiver Randy Moss. None of those guys are hard to
replace or terribly expensive. Only defensive lineman Justin Smith and
center Jonathan Goodwin will be tough to replace at some point.




The heart of the 49ers roster is primarily made up of guys in their
eighth year or less, such as Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Mike Iupati
and Colin Kaepernick. This is a team that set up to be good for a long
time.




Still, this is a team that needs to make sure it has as many
difference-makers as possible. It also is a team that desperately needs a
No. 1 cornerback, as evidenced by the fact that the 49ers have expressed interest in just about every top corner in the market.




Well, Revis is a difference-maker and would be the best cornerback
available, even if that’s through the trade market rather than the
free-agent market.




And if the 49ers need reminders of how valuable a guy like Revis can
be, they can look at the last time they won a title after signing Deion
Sanders.



[More: Deal will send QB Alex Smith from San Francisco to Kansas City]



In 1994, Sanders changed the balance of power in the NFL when he became
a free agent and went to the 49ers for one season. San Francisco won
the title by beating Dallas and wide receiver Michael Irvin in the NFC
championship along the way. The next year, Sanders switched to Dallas
and helped the Cowboys to their third title in four years.




Moreover, think about what the 49ers can expect if they don’t use their
bounty of picks to chase after Revis. Don’t be surprised if Atlanta,
which came tantalizingly close to beating the 49ers in the NFC
championship game this year, makes a run at Revis.




Or there is this to consider: While Seattle won’t chase Revis, don’t
think for a second that the Seahawks aren’t looking to upgrade at wide
receiver in an effort to take advantage of quarterback Russell Wilson’s
talent.




Or look at St. Louis, a division rival that gave the 49ers fits in two
games this past season and will be trying to upgrade at receiver for
quarterback Sam Bradford.



In essence, the 49ers may be the best team in NFC right now and may
have a treasure trove of picks at their disposal. But they better use
those picks wisely.




Even if it’s just for one player.

It just might be. 

 

What I’d start out asking for is KC’s guaranteed 2nd this year.  San Fran’s 1st, and KC’s 2nd next year on the conditional basis that the 9er’s get him signed.

I was just reading a SF message board and Revis' reputation precedes him.  I'd say about 80%  DON'T want him.  Kind of shocked it was that high but all point to the headache he'd be with his ludicrous contract demands. 

 

Many were saying they wouldn't part with their 31st and 34th picks for him.  Being worried about his greed is legitimate but to not think he'd be worth what amounts to two 2nd round picks is lunacy of the highest order.

Holmes is cuttable.

 

It creates $11,000,000 in dead money,but saves $1,200,000 agains the cap

We were looking for a 1st and a 2nd. 

 

But given that the Niners pick at #31, that pick is more like a really early second.   So we should get three picks. 

I'd love to have their #31 and the KC#33.  It's such a good spot in this draft to get the first-round leftovers and/or top of the second tier guys.

Both seconds and a 3rd this year with a 2014 first and second might lead to the Jets not laughing and hanging up the phone.

Lucky for us the opinion's of the poster on SF's message boards sights mean nothing like ours. Whew!! good thing.

Good point. I am sure 'some' teams GMs are leery of Revis and Uncle Seans BS contract games

2nd rounder in 2013 1st rounder 2014 and lamichael james. If we cant get nfl player back then ill take 2nd and 3rd round picks this year and 1st and 2nd next year. Although why would san fran give any of this up unless theyre able to sign revis to mega deal? Plus off injury? Its just wishful thinking

Niners fans look at how far they got and have to wonder fi Holdout Boy's talent is worth the yearly contract disruptions. Plus they have several guys -Alden Smith, Patrick Willis and Colin Kapernick-who someday soon are going to want to get paid. But if they are loooking to win in 2013, may be they give the Jets a pile of picks and worry about the future in the future.

49ers were so close to winning it all and they have bushel of picks -they are the logical partner if any

If they will give up three high picks you have to take it
