Where did the 49ers’ own 7th-round pick go?

Feb 25, 2017 at 8:24 AM--


On Friday, Peter Volmut of the San Francisco 49ers public relations department released a list of the 10 selections the team owns in the 2017 NFL Draft (shown below). This was after compensatory selections were awarded by the league. The 49ers received one such selection – a fourth-round pick.

So what happened to the 49ers' own 7th-round selection? Why aren't there 11 picks instead of widely reported 10? There seems to be some confusion out there on social media.

In 2015, the 49ers traded TE Derek Carrier to the Washington Redskins. In return, the 49ers received a 5th-round draft pick. Pretty straight forward, right? Well, there was more to it. The 49ers also ended up giving Washington their 7th-round pick in the trade, per CSN Bay Area. That's where the vanishing 11th pick went.

Washington received: TE Derek Carrier, 49ers' 7th-round pick (220 overall)
San Francisco received: Redskins' 5th-round pick (161 overall)


Wait a minute. When did a 7th-round selection come into play for Carrier? It was conditional according to CSN Bay Area. If Carrier didn't meet a playing time condition, Washington would receive the 49ers' 2017 7th-round selection. He didn't meet that playing time condition so the result was what is listed above – the 49ers parting with their own 7th-round pick as part of the trade.

Why didn't Carrier meet his playing time condition? After starting 12 games for Washington in 2015, the tight end suffered a torn ACL and MCL in a game against the Chicago Bears.

However, the 49ers did get the pick just before their original 7th-round selection, the 219th overall, from the Cleveland Browns in return for P Andy Lee. As of now, that leaves the 49ers with 10 selections in the upcoming draft and not 11.

Below is a list of the team's picks in the upcoming draft, according to the 49ers public relations department.

Round Pick Overall
1 2 2
2 2 34
3 2 66
4 2 109
4 37 143 Comp pick
5 2 146
5 17 161 From Washington*
6 2 186
6 18 202 From Denver**
7 1 219 From Cleveland***

* Acquired for TE Derek Carrier in 2015 while 49ers' 2017 7th went to Washington
** Acquired for TE Vernon Davis in 2015
*** Acquired for P Andy Lee in 2015

49ers projected to land two offensive stars in Draft Network seven-round mock

Mock drafts are a dime a dozen this time of year, and most of them wind up projecting something unexciting that has already been projected several times before. But every once in a while, a mock draft comes along that is interesting enough to single out and discuss on its own, like this one from Ryan Fowler of The Draft Network. Fowler put together a complete seven-round mock for the 49ers using The Draft Network's endlessly entertaining Mock Draft Machine and came up with an intriguing list of players that includes two of college football's biggest offensive stars over the past two seasons. The first is quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State, whom Fowler has going to the 49ers in Round 1. The second



4 bold offseason predictions from ESPN reporters involve 49ers

ESPN's 32 NFL Nation reporters were asked to make bold offseason predictions for each of the teams that they cover. Four involved the San Francisco 49ers, and since no one really knows what will happen with the team's quarterback situation, they are each very different. Let's start by looking at 49ers reporter Nick Wagoner's bold offseason prediction — which doesn't necessarily sound so bold. It sounds prudent and safe, actually. But considering everyone is seemingly predicting San Francisco parting ways with Jimmy Garoppolo, maybe it does qualify. Wagoner envisions general manager John Lynch and head



49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk discusses his NFL future, tough decisions headed into free agency

The San Francisco 49ers' five-time Pro Bowl fullback, Kyle Juszczyk, joined the Haberman & Middlekauff podcast this week. The topics of discussion include his trip to Cabo San Lucas with tight end George Kittle and head coach Kyle Shanahan, the evolution of the fullback position, his Wikipedia photo, the Harvard experience, his nightmare of a draft party, the wild 2019 season, and more. One interesting tidbit that Juszczyk shared was his story about initially signing with the 49ers in 2017. It looked like he was headed to the Buffalo Bills. On the night before Juszczyk planned to sign, his girlfriend, Kristin — now his wife — was in tears because she did not want to live in Buffalo. "The next day, I told my agent, 'Hey, if you can get San



49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk discusses Pete Carroll, Seahawks, praises Brandon Aiyuk

Seattle Seahawks fullback Kyle Juszczyk? That is probably the last thing San Francisco 49ers fans want to see for the fan-favorite offensive weapon. Juszczyk is headed into free agency next month unless the 49ers can work out a deal before then. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is a fan of Juszczyk. "He does everything. He is a great player," Carroll said before facing the 49ers during Week 17. "He is as meaningful a part of an offense as any player in the NFL. … He can play tight end. He can play out of the backfield. He can lead on all the blocking principles that they have. He can carry the football. He's good in the red zone. He's good in short yardage. He's just a great football player." Juszczyk joined the Haberman and
