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

** Acquired for TE Vernon Davis in 2015
*** Acquired for P Andy Lee in 2015

Fred Warner: DeMeco Ryans to add 'his own touch' to the defense, 49ers are 'dialed in' and 'hungry'

Fred Warner has been paid, and the All-Pro linebacker is excited to get back to work. The San Francisco 49ers report to training camp next week and will hold their first practice on Wednesday, July 28. A historic number of injuries derailed the Niners' 2020 campaign, and the team finished with just six wins. In addition, the defense lost its coordinator, Robert Saleh, who left to become the head coach of the New York Jets. DeMeco Ryans, Warner's former position coach, replaces Saleh. While some wonder what this might mean in the immediate future for the defense's production, the star linebacker expects a smooth transition to Ryans. RELATED:

Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when the team opens the regular season on September 12 against the Detroit Lions. How long he remains the starter is the question. San Francisco traded up to draft Garoppolo's eventual successor, Trey Lance, at No. 3 overall. He will bring a much different dynamic to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. The inexperienced quarterback just needs time to learn and master the playbook and scheme. We asked our 49ers Webzone contributors to predict when Lance will get his first start. Below are the responses in the order in which they were received.
