49ers trade partner No. 3: New York Jets
A reunion with former defensive coordinator Robert Saleh might entice both the 49ers and Deebo Samuel to find him a good home and out of California.
The Jets won’t trade away the fourth overall pick, but there are reports that they are willing to trade away the 10th overall pick for the All-Pro wideout.
The first-round pick alone probably won’t satisfy the Niners alone, however, so the Jets might end up trading away their Round 2 pick, 38th overall, the 69th pick slated to be used in Round 3.
The 49ers could use the 10th overall to possibly trade down because there isn’t exactly anyone worth staying at that spot for in what’s generally considered to be a weaker NFL Draft class.
Trade down and grab even more picks to reload, and draft a wide receiver like Chris Olave from Ohio State or Christian Watson from North Dakota State, the latter being quarterback Trey Lance’s beloved target back in college.
