The San Francisco 49ers got an added boon to their draft war chest last month when they got the 13th overall pick in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts.

But ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft, the 49ers appear interested in turning that extra pick into even more assets. According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, there has been "plenty of action" for the 49ers' 13th overall pick.

Per the report, "multiple inquiries" for the pick have been made today. Better yet, the 49ers appear open to moving it.

The 49ers gave up defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to get the pick. Buckner was the No. 7 overall pick by the 49ers in 2017 and earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors during his tenure in San Francisco.

The defending NFC Champions don't have a ton of needs to fill, though a playmaking wide receiver, a big offensive lineman or a pass rushing linebacker to help out Nick Bosa couldn't hurt.

In a draft with so much elite talent on offense, this might be opportune time for the 49ers to increase their supply of draft picks for the near future. There certainly appear to be teams open to making that a reality.

Do you think the 49ers will make a trade in the first round of the NFL Draft?
