5 players 49ers should put on the trade block entering 2024 NFL Draft

John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have even joked about trading the other if the compensation was good enough.

49ers trade candidate No. 5: OL Jaylon Moore

A year ago, the 49ers went with Colton McKivitz at right tackle after losing their longtime starter, Mike McGlinchey, to the Denver Broncos in free agency.

McKivitz was less than adequate, prompting many a mock draft to suggest the Niners will target a new right tackle in what's being viewed as a historically talented and deep class of offensive linemen.

Assuming that's what San Francisco does, at least early in the draft, it would relegate McKivitz to a backup role in 2024 for which he's more suited. But it would also bump last season's swing tackle, Jaylon Moore, further down the depth chart.

And Moore would likely be pushed even further down if the 49ers seek additional depth for the offensive line in the later rounds of the draft.

Moore has some modest upside, including being able to play at guard, as well as both tackle spots. Not a flashy player, teams are always searching for solid depth to reinforce their own O-lines, and Moore can fit the bill.

Again, this wouldn't be a high-profile trade. But, if Moore has a slim chance at making the Niners' 53-man roster already, moving him between now and the end of the draft would at least net San Francisco something in return.
