Can the Niners snag Darrell Jackson?

Question: I've heard that the Seahawks may be looking to trade WR Darrell Jackson. Do you think the 49ers will try to make the trade and how much would they have to give up? I think this could be a great move for the Niners and would really solidify a position of need. He had 63 catches for 956 yards and 10 touchdowns which are solid numbers and he could be a big help to Alex Smith and the passing game.
--Brad, Davis

Answer: You're right - Darrell Jackson would be a big help in the passing game. The question is whether the 49ers believe they can find someone in the draft who will be a younger, less expensive version of Jackson. If not, they might have to give up one of their first-day picks - a third rounder? - to get him. If there is a trade, look for it to come in the days leading up to the draft.

He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
