John Lynch makes it clear the 49ers are open to trading No. 2 pick

John Lynch might have had no front-office experience before being hired as the San Francisco 49ers general manager earlier this year, but that doesnt mean the former NFL safety is going to be shy about pulling the trigger.

Lynch said Wednesday that teams have expressed interest in acquiring the 49ers No. 2 pick, and hes willing to make a deal.

Were open for business. Well listen to anything, Lynch said, via the San Jose Mercury News.

Many believe the Browns will take defensive end Myles Garrett with the No. 1 pick, leaving San Francisco possibly to take quarterback Mitch Trubisky with the second pick.

Weve worked Mitch out and theres a lot to like about him. I also know its that time of year, Lynch said. We have 15 days, and a lot can happen in those days. Its fluid for us, and Im sure its fluid for them and everyone else.

The 49ers, who are coming off a 2-14 season, signed Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley last month but are still searching for a long-term answer at the quarterback position. Lynch said he and new head coach Kyle Shanahan like what theyve seen from this years crop of quarterbacks that have received some mixed reviews from analysts.

Weve looked at it from every angle, and from the beginning, I thought that maybe the perception that this isnt a real strong quarterback class, thats in the eyes of the beholder. We have our own feelings. Theres a lot that we like. Weve put in the work. Thats a position where seeing it live and in person is helpful to me. Kyle feels the same way.
