Pro Football Talk first reported of trade talks between the teams. See story below:
The Patriots looked to bolster their offensive line by taking Georgia's Isaiah Wynn with their first pick in the draft Thursday. Apparently, they're looking to continue to add to the o-line by talking trade with the San Francisco 49ers for offensive tackle Trent Brown, according to Pro Football Talk.

The 49ers made Notre Dame OT Mike McGlinchey the No. 9 overall pick on Thursday night, so Brown could be expendable.
A sixth-round pick in 2015 from the University of Florida, Brown, 6-9, 376 pounds, had a shoulder injury that limited him to 10 starts last season after he started all 16 games in 2016.
