49ers Trade Out of Pick No. 67, get 2018 2nd-rounder
The San Francisco 49ers were slated to pick back-to-back in the third round, picking at No. 66 and No. 67. At 66, they took Ahkello Witherspoon, the cornerback out of Colorado.
Then, they turn around and trade the No. 67 pick away to the New Orleans.
New Orleans Saints get:
Pick No. 67
San Francisco 49ers get:
2017 7th-rounder (229)
Wowowow! John Lynch just turned the Bears' draft pick from yesterday into a future second rounder in 2018. In 2018, the 49ers now have 5 picks in the first three rounds. A first-round pick, two seconds and two thirds, from trades this year.
Paraag Marathe and John Lynch are working their magic so far. In the 2017 NFL Draft, the 49ers still have these picks available:
Rd. 4 - 109
Rd. 4 - 143
Rd. 5 - 146
Rd. 5 - 161
Rd. 6 - 186
Rd. 6 - 202
Rd. 7 - 219
Rd. 7 - 229
Look for them to go offense with the next eight picks, adding weapons for Kyle Shanahan's offense.
