The 49ers knew early in the draft process that they liked offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, whom they chose with the ninth overall pick. But they didn’t want any other team to know, because they feared someone might trade ahead of them.

With the trades made in the past three days and projected compensatory picks, the Patriots will have 11 picks in 2019, via Reiss. That includes the Bears’ second-round pick and the Lions’ third-round pick, giving them two seconds and possibly three third-rounders with compensatory picks.
Why stop there, though?
