Heyward-Bey and Hilton need to learn how to catch the ball on a regular basis!! Also, our LB corps are BAD!! Especially Angerer!! He blocks himself better then any O-lineman or Rb ever could. THe only tackles he makes is falling on the pile!! Trade for Paul Posluszny or Shawn Lee.... Navro Bowman too! 

Paul Posluszny!!

Trading for Davis would be a horrible idea.

Care to elaborate? Fred Davis in 2011 and 2012 was one of the best TEs in football before his injury. We're talking 1 year ago, not 4 or 5, he was playing at an extremely high level. I find it hard to believe he's lost it all and we're talking a late round pick, none of that "mortgaging the future" crap people love to throw around.

I just don't see the value in Fred Davis. Once DA comes back he's disposable...

You do realize Dwayne Allen is out for the year, correct? You do realize the Colts could use a receiving threat this year, correct? Fred Davis would give us that receiving threat for as cheap as a 6th or 7th rounder. Do you really want to hold on to late round picks so badly that you'd give up a chance to improve this team now, when we are legitimate Super Bowl contenders?

I predict a list of guys who were drafted in the 7th round and turned out to be really good coming your way. For the record I agree with you.

Scheffler is better and a FA.

Scheffler is better and a FA.

So basically you're saying "what have you done for me lately, Fred Davis?" If we get 70% of the Fred Davis from 2011/2012, he's better than Scheffler. Also, Fred Davis' is younger and his ceiling is much higher than Scheffler's (as we've seen).

So can we just chalk up your proclamation of the trade idea being "horrible" as hyperbole?

Nope, giving up even a late round pick for a one dimensional TE that has been benched for a rookie is a horrible idea.

    • Regardless of the move up if you are drafting a QB in the top 10 and he is a bust you should lose your job because that’s a huge setback for a team. Not just the 49ers but any team that takes a QB. Shanahan likes to run the West Coast offense and with that having a mobile QB helps so Fields makes more sense to me. But if he wants a pure pocket passer Jones fits the bill. 
    • This is an important one for me that says otherwise. Playing with first round WRs hasn't tested Jones with tight windows as much, IMO.       
    • Yep. And many of them also think that teams are going to give Ballard some ridiculous haul of draft picks.   Most of this is due to 2018 trade from #3 to #6...where the NYJ did give Ballard a sweetheart trade. But that wasn't some indication of draft approach...it was just good, sound decision-making. And it was a trade that nearly all GMs would make if they could get it (assuming they too didn't need a QB). And it happened well before the draft, which is much different than a draft day trade back.    So he's only really ever done a big draft day trade back once...in 2019. And not to rehash this...but it's looking like it was not the correct path...so I am not sure why fans are so gung-ho about doing it every year.   But overall, he's probably traded up on draft day as much as he has traded down.    I think if trades back this year, it's going to be small trade backs that land late round picks (like moving back in the 3rd and 4th rounds)...or one singluar trade back that lands Day 2 draft capital next year to help offset the Wentz trade.    And then after this trade, the prevailing narrative will be that it doesn't matter what Wentz does...because he was basically free.
    • Based on stats Mac Jones is above all. Career stats I’ll give Fields the nod. Lance has a potential high ceiling but eye test and stats he isn’t above either IMO. Not currently. 
    • I think Kyle Shanahan is a good enough play caller that will make both Jones and Fields work for him just as he would with Lance. Ultimately, their decision becomes a make or break because of the draft capital they have given up to go get one that they think will make a difference and not have been available at No.12.   No matter who goes to SF will have a good record, the question will be if they can put them over the hump come playoff time. I don't think Jimmy G can.
