With the Oakland Raiders trading down from No. 3 to No. 12 in the first round, they have emerged as a potential trading partner with the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers are looking to use their 13 selections to trade up in the first round, while the Raiders are looking for more selections and wouldn’t mind trading down again from No. 12.
Could the Bay Area rivals pull off a trade? We’ll see.
