Official NFL Draft and Draft Weekend Trades Thread

Trade would send 49er pick to Seahawks for star WR

By Michael Smith

The San Francisco 49ers, one of the more aggressive teams this offseason in terms of acquisitions, enter this weekend's draft with a league-high eight picks in the first four rounds: one first-round selection, a second, two thirds and four fourths.

On the eve of the draft, the Niners already were poised to maximize the value of one of those fourth-round picks.

According to a league sources, San Francisco and division rival Seattle are working toward a trade that would send Seahawks wide receiver Darrell Jackson to the Niners in exchange for one of their fourth-rounders, believed to be the Niners' third selection in the round, No. 124 overall. The New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans, whose new general manager Mike Reinfeldt came over from Seattle, are also believed to be talking with Seattle about Jackson.

The deal is contingent upon Jackson passing his physical, scheduled for Saturday at the Niners' Santa Clara, Calif., practice facility. Jackson missed 10 regular-season games in 2005 after undergoing surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, underwent a second operation on the knee following Seattle's loss in Super Bowl XL, and missed the final three regular-season games of last season because of turf toe.

Jackson, 28, caught 63 passes in 2006 for 956 yards and 10 touchdowns -- all team-leading totals. At the time of his toe injury, Jackson was leading the league in touchdown catches. He's exceeded 1,000 receiving yards three times in seven seasons.

However, Jackson and Seahawks management reportedly have been at odds following negotiation of the six-year, $25 million contract extension Jackson signed in March 2004, his decision to skip voluntary workouts in 2005, and the manner in which the team handled his knee injury last season.

The presence of Deion Branch, Nate Burleson, and D.J. Hackett in the Seahawks receiving corps made Jackson expendable; Jackson has been on the trading block all offseason but Seattle apparently could not fetch more than a second-day pick -- from its up-and-coming division rival, no less. Branch, whom the Seahawks acquired from the Patriots last season, presumably would become Matt Hasselbeck's No. 1 target.

Should the trade go through, as expected, Jackson's addition represents yet another coup for the Niners, who via free agency added, among others, cornerback Nate Clements, safety Michael Lewis, and Ashley Lelie. Though the Niners lost offensive coordinator Norv Turner to San Diego, they appear to have, in quarterback Alex Smith, running back Frank Gore, tight end Vernon Davis, wide receiver Arnaz Battle, Lelie, and now possibly Jackson, the makings of an explosive offense.

And there's still the draft. With the 11th overall pick, the Niners could pick up a blue-chip prospect such as Penn State offensive tackle Levi Brown or LSU wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to further bolster the offense, or tap Mississippi linebacker Patrick Willis to help head coach Mike Nolan's defense.

In 96 games, including 89 starts, Jackson, a third-round selection in 2000 out of Florida, has 441 receptions for 6,445 yards (14.6-yard average) and 47 touchdowns.

One might say Jackson's new team is scoring big this offseason.

I don't get it. The Seahags are trading their best reciever to a team that looks to be on the rise in their own division. A team that, IIRC, swept them this year. Something's not right. Either his knees are shot or he has some incurable disease.

Oakland is now officially on the clock.

Please let them pick CJ and keep him. Just keep him away from the South.

EDIT: They picked Jamarcus Russell. Now please let DETROIT pick CJ.

Oh wait, N/m. My negative side just got the better of me.

Could be a trade in the making, which with the Lions is highly possible.

Don't worry about that...I'll make one myself!

(And, in parentheses below it, maybe Jon Gruden's name as well.)

Well, let's see what the Browns do...will they make the fans happy, show them that they give a damn, and take Brady Quinn?

*EDIT* Nope. It's Joe Thomas.

Cleveland takes Joe Thomas.

Might not be the flashy pick, but dude's the best OT to come out of the draft in a while. Smart pick, I guess.

Wouldn't it be delightful if the Bucs continue to be QB happy and pick Brady Quinn? That would be hilarious.

Brady Quinn is this year's Matt Leinart. (Look for the cellphone by about pick #6, if not the next one...)

If this don't pan out, this will be WHY the Cleveland Browns will continue to toil in futility. I mean...wonderboy made it KNOWN he WANTED to play in Cleveland. How many people outside of Joe Jurevicious have EVER said that?

Okay...well now my boys is up. Now, it's known Jon Gruden LOVES Adrian Peterson AND Brady Quinn...and it wouldn't surprise me one ioda if that knucklehead went and snagged up either of those two instead of Gaines Adams or some other D-line help, which is what we REALLY need. (We REALLY need CJ, but...)

Okay, let's see how this plays out here...
