The 49ers traded OT Trent Brown the morning after drafting his replacement.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, traded Brown and their fifth-round pick (No.143) to the Patriots in exchange for their third-round pick (No.95).
49ers are trading OT Trent Brown and pick number 143 overall to the New England Patriots in exchange for pick number 95 overall, per @FieldYates and me. The deal is pending a physical.

This trade means Brown’s value roughly was a fourth-round pick. Do you think the 49ers sold low?
I like the trade. They should be able to draft a starter with the 95th pick — Lynch said there are 100 starters in this draft. The 49ers have four picks on Day 2 — Nos. 59, 70, 74 and 95.
What do you think of the trade?
