San Francisco 49ers plan 'aggressive' NFL draft strategy

The San Francisco 49ers made the NFC Championship game for the third straight season but once again finished the year without a Super Bowl trophy. However, according to reports today, the 49ers may just be ready to make the step up for glory.

Evan Silva, a senior editor for Rotoworld tweeted: "ESPN's Chris Mortensen suggested Mike Evans as a trade-up target for #49ers. Mort hearing Niners "could be very aggressive in this draft."

Silva mentioned that  a trade for the Oakland Raider's first round pick at number five overall might be one pick which could travel the width of the Bay Area on draft day.

The 49ers are by no means a struggling football team, they came within inches of beating the Baltimore Ravens in 2013 Super Bowl and came up against the best team in football last year in the Seattle Seahawks.

Jim Harbaugh's team ran the Seahawks close in that NFC Championship game and it is possible that they are just a couple of players away from getting that edge.

Mike Evans is an interesting candidate. The wide receiver from Texas A&M is touted as one of the best wide-outs in the draft at 6'5" and 230 pounds he is a beast of a man.

Should the 49ers pull the trigger on the trade and pick Evans, he would complete a receiving corps that already includes Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis. At that point, maybe the Niners would have just enough fire power to overcome that mean Seahawks defense.
