It seemed funny when Mike Nolan traded away next year's no. 1 pick to the New England Patriots for an offensive tackle. Now it all makes sense.
The 49ers just traded their second-round pick - no. 42 overall - to the Indianapolis Colts for the Colts' first-round pick next year and their fourth-round pick, no. 126 overall, this year.
That means the 49ers once again have four picks in the fourth round and their first-rounder next season. It looks like a good move now, and it could be even more fanastic if the 49ers finish ahead of the defending Super Bowl champs in the stands next season. That's a big if...
