The 49ers traded a fifth- and a seventh-rounder to the Browns for McCoy and a sixth-rounder. And considering the 49ers started the offseason with 14 picks, that’s a negligible price.
While no one was pegging Tolzien has having a shot, the 49ers also haven’t invested enough time or resources into McCoy to make him untouchable.
