NFL Draft Rumors: San Francisco 49ers open to trade up?

The San Francisco 49ers have been rumored to be interested in drafting a wide receiver for a few months now.

They’re likely to do so, but what about getting the guy that they want? It sounds as if they may be open to trading up, this according to the Sacramento Bee who suggests we shouldn’t be shocked if the 49ers do attempt to move up some spots.

The 49ers’ personnel at wideout in 2014 certainly will dictate how often they turn to three-receiver formations. The upcoming draft is deep at the position, and the team’s interest in players like Jackson seems to telegraph what they will be seeking in the draft. Don’t be surprised if they trade up – like they did last season – to get the guy they want.

The 49ers have attempted to lure multiple free agent wide receivers this offseason (though have yet to find one to their liking) and given the fact they plan to use more three receivers sets this season, it sounds as if drafting a wide receiver is in their future.

Who exactly? That still remains to be seen.
