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.
