Team Poised to Make A Big Move Up: San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are turning into the NFC version of the New England Patriots. They are more than willing to trade down and stockpile picks for future years and go off the board to add their kind of player, and they love to take chances in later rounds. (Marcus Lattimore is a prime example). 

However, this year is unlike previous years for Jim Harbaugh's group. The 49ers are still loaded with talent on both sides of the ball, but there are a lot of question marks. Is Aldon Smith going to be suspended by the NFL? If so, for how long? How long will NaVorro Bowman be out? Who is the No. 2 cornerback on the roster? Who is the big-play wide receiver for Colin Kaepernick?

The good news is that two of those questions can be answered at various times in this draft. The wide receiver depth is incredible, with potential starters coming in the second and third rounds. Cornerback is also a position of strength, though that will run out quickly because of team needs. 

One of the biggest rumors leading into the draft, courtesy of ESPN.com's Chris Mortensen, via Rotoworld's Evan Silva, has the 49ers moving way up:

The presumption is that they want to get Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans. A move up from pick No. 30 into the top five would cost the 49ers, but they do have the picks to make something like that happen. They have 11 picks overall and six of the first 100. 

The 49ers could also look to package picks and move into the teens, hoping to get one of the second-tier receivers such as Odell Beckham Jr., Marqise Lee or Brandin Cooks.

It would be uncharacteristic for San Francisco to trade away multiple picks in order to move up, but the Super Bowl window is still open. It's slowly closing, meaning the team has to take advantage of the talent already on the roster while it still can.

 

Team That Needs to Make a Big Move Down: Washington Redskins

For all the flak teams such as Jacksonville and Oakland get, the Washington Redskins are the most mismanaged franchise in football. They are still able to add talent in free agency, but the front office has punted so many drafts in recent years. 

What's most likely to happen on draft day?

The Redskins have gone 12 straight years without having at least one pick in each of the first three rounds. They traded away their first-round pick this year (No. 2 overall) in a deal with St. Louis two years ago that landed them Robert Griffin III. 

Griffin has tremendous potential as a quarterback, even after a bad 2013 season, so it's possible the deal turns out to be a win for the Redskins. But how much would that second pick help the franchise this year?

Instead, Washington is forced to wait until the second round (No. 34 overall) to make a selection. Even though the club has plenty of needs to address with that pick (safety, linebacker), the best thing they can do is try to trade down and add more picks, either this year or in the future. 

Because of the depth in this class, the Redskins can afford to move down and address their needs with a player who has a similar grade to what they want at No. 34 while being able to supplement other positions with more picks. 

 

Team That Shouldn't Make A Big Move Up: Philadelphia Eagles

One late-developing rumor, courtesy of The MMQB's Peter King, has the Philadelphia Eagles looking to move up in the first round with the hopes of getting Beckham:

But the Eagles would have to trade up, and GM Howie Roseman is doing his due diligence, talking to at least two teams in the mid-round neighborhood, when Beckham would likely go. But the cost could be too rich for the Eagles’ blood. They may have to settle for Marqise Lee, who would be some consolation prize.

If the choice is between Beckham and Lee, there's not a lot of separation between the two when it comes to raw skills. Both players are a shade taller than 5'11" and in the range of 190-200 pounds. 

Beckham had better numbers in 2013, but that was playing with quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who could end up being a second- or third-round draft pick. Lee played with sophomore Cody Kessler, who was a full-time starter for the first time in 2013. 

After Watkins and Evans, there's not a lot of separation between the first-round receivers on the board. The Eagles can sit where they are and get the playmaker they need without sacrificing the rest of their draft.
