Today on ESPN Chris Mortensen stated that he has heard numerous times that the 49ers could be “ready to do something big” in May’s draft.
49ers GM Trent Baalke is working with 11 picks, including six selections in the top 100, so he has plenty of ammo to execute a trade up.
Mortensen said the 49ers could be targeting Texas A&M WR Mike Evans, perhaps with a move into the top five. Mortensen said Oakland is “open for business” at No. 5 overall.
Anquan Boldin is entering the season at the age of 34, and Michael Crabtree is in a contract year as well. Could you imagine Mike Evans in San Fran?
The Raiders could land a 1st rounder in 2015 along with some other picks.
