First 2020 NFL Draft Trade Involves Tampa Bay and 49ers

The first trade of the NFL Draft finally occurred after almost two hours into the event.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the Buccaneers moved up one spot with San Francisco. The 49ers receive the 14th and 117th pick while Tampa Bay receives the 13th and a seventh-round pick.

Tampa Bay ended up selecting Iowa offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs with the 13th pick. Wirfs was widely predicted to land with the New York Giants at the 4th pick in the draft so his drop was a surprise. The Buccaneers get their guy to help protect their 42 year old quarterback Tom Brady. Wirfs should help with the running game as well as it needs to improve.

The San Francisco 49ers used their 14th pick to select South Carolina defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. He’s a big, dominant force in the middle of the defensive line who can make an impact on stopping the run. Kinlaw has also done a good job putting the pressure on the quarterback for his size. He should replace DeForrest Buckner on the defensive line. This is a draft pick that helps the 49ers improve their depth on the defensive line.

Both teams got their guys in the end and the 49ers got a fourth-round pick out of it. It wouldn’t be considered a game-changing trade, but both teams got what they wanted.
