Prior to completing the deal, San Francisco had made nine picks in the draft and still had two more to go, so it makes sense that the team would be willing to move one of those selections for a 2016 pick. Without taking into account compensatory picks, the Niners already have nine selections lined up for next year, with an extra fifth-rounder and sixth-rounder in hand.
