Do the 49ers already own any other picks besides the 30th pick in each round?
Are the 49ers likely to get any compensatory picks this year?
I think for sure we have a pick in all the rounds. 1-7... some thought the Taylor Mays 7th rounder from Cinci was for this year but it is a 2013 7th rounder.
As for compensation I don't think that's out yet. I would say we would get a 7th rounder at best. Probably nothing since we signed more free agents than we lost and didn't really lose anybody big.
As for the pick I think we get 30th in each round. But you have to take into account the comp picks that go as high as I think after round 3. Since we finished at 13-3 and the other team that got knocked out in the championship round the Ravens (12-4) we would pick after them. The only way they rotate it each round is if you have the same record.
So in previous years (like last) we had the same record as say 2, 3 4 other teams. In the 1st round the team with the worst strength of schedule picks 1st and so on based on SOS. (highest last) Then in every round after 1 they rotate it so the team that picked 1st I think picks last of those teams with the same record in the 2nd round and they keep rotating.
49ers 6-10 SOS .309
Cardinals 6-10. 410
Giants 6-10 .503
We have worst SOS so we pick 1st out of the 6-10 teams.
Then 2nd round: Cardinals, Giants, 49ers
then 3rd round: Giants, 49ers, Cardinals
