Having 13 picks in this year's NFL draft provides this team the opportunity to be the most active come Thursday night when the first round kicks off. With minimal spots to fill on the roster, however, the 49ers would do well to flip some of their fortune into creating a more pointed approach.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports says San Francisco could be very busy and has its eyes set on moving up to the 13th or 14th pick range.
With so many teams wanting to stockpile draft picks, the 49ers really do have the upper hand here. They also cannot afford to add more than a handful rookies onto the roster, so look for San Francisco to be very active.
The 49ers are not slated to make their first selection until pick No. 31 (they also own the 34th pick that they received in the Alex Smith trade with the Kansas City Chiefs), but have two picks each in rounds two through five. Though finding the right trading partner is key, San Francisco is not short of options with so many different scenarios to consider.
Here are a few realistic possibilities for the 49ers to consolidate their draft board.
