49ers Rumors: San Francisco "In Love" With Alabama WR Amari Cooper, Draft Trade?

The San Francisco 49ers are reportedly in the market for an impact wide receiver, and that could very well lead to a blockbuster 2015 NFL Draft swap to land one of the top wideouts in this year's class.

Per lead Bleacher Report draft expert Matt Miller, "high-level sources with the San Francisco 49ers have told me the team is "in love" with wide receiver Amari Cooper from Alabama and will inquire as to trading up to draft him should he slip past the Oakland Raiders at No. 4 overall."

There's plenty of reason to think that the Oakland Raiders will cut the 49ers off at the pass and take Cooper 4th, with Oakland management said to also be smitten with the dynamic former Crimson Tide wideout.

However, Oakland could also feasibly provide a partner for such a trade -- especially with the Raiders having multiple holes at several key positions. Adding a bevy of draft picks in such a deal could be just what the doctor ordered for their rebuilding project.

Stay tuned.
