"I think ironically the fact that we had the No. 2 pick made it more difficult because they wanted that badly," Lynch said. "They wanted two No. 1s, and we weren't willing to part with that. That's too valuable of a pick even for a player of his magnitude. So, we tried to come up with creative different ways to get it down and it didn't work out and you move on."
The No. 2 overall pick obviously has much more value than a pick in the teens. With the Giants looking to stockpile picks, a deal with the Niners likely became unrealistic from both perspectives.
"We took a quick look and then we just said, 'Hey, we're not interested in that for our team.' That's where we are," he said. "I think we feel pretty good about our receiving corps. I know a lot of people don't share our sentiments."
San Francisco could look to add a rookie wideout in the draft, but Lynch insists he likes the group in place and will trust coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to boost the current corps.
