Clark Judge of CBSSports.com suggests that the 49ers could now be a potential trade partner for the Jets DB Darrelle Revis after acquiring the No. 34 overall pick for QB Alex Smith.
“They have the ammunition to make a move on New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis,” writes Judge. “By acquiring Kansas City’s second-round choice, the 34th overall, the 49ers have five of the top 93 picks, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that that gives them flexibility — which is just what you need if you go hunting for Revis.“
Judge adds that league executives that he’s spoke with have mentioned that they wouldn’t offer “anything higher than a second-rounder” for Revis.
Revis’ knee injury and huge contract demands could reduce the Jets compensation in a potential deal. He’s under contract for another season, but his deal includes a clause that prevents him from being franchised, so they would have to feel confident that they could lock him up long-term.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network mentions that with Revis contract demands it could put a serious strain on the team’s future.
#49ers could in fact trade for Revis. Got the picks. But they need to lock up Kaep & Crabtree (with high-priced vets). How to fit it all?

Revis is reportedly looking to become the highest-paid defender in the game, which would require a deal close to Mario Williams‘ $16 million annually.
The 49ers have will have to address some of their young talent such as QB Colin Kaepernick, WR Michael Crabtree, OLAnthony Davis and Mike Iupati in the coming years, so it makes sense that this would factor into a decision regarding a trade for Revis.
