Trades play big role in building of Super Bowl-bound 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Most executives preach the importance of building through the draft. Splashy free agent signings each March generate lots of headlines.

When it came to building the San Francisco 49ers into a Super Bowl team, coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch used a tactic that's not nearly as common in the NFL with a series a trades that have put key starters in place.

"John and his staff have been unbelievable," Shanahan said. "When we came here, we knew we had to go get some. There were a lot here to start with that have worked out very well, but we also knew we had a lot of hard work in front of us. John and his staff have presented all this stuff and got us a ton of guys, and it's been great because even the big key ones that everyone knows about have made a difference."
