The San Francisco 49ers are up to six selections in the upcoming draft. The team was awarded a sixth-round compensatory pick (No. 212 overall) to go along with its own first-, second-, third-, fourth-, and sixth-round picks, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. It comes due to the loss of linebacker Aaron Lynch, who signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears on March 15, 2018, and appeared in 13 games with three starts this past season.

The 49ers are without fifth- and seventh-round selections. They traded their fifth-rounder to the Detroit Lions before the start of the 2017 season for guard Laken Tomlinson. Their seventh-rounder went to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for tackle Shon Coleman before the start of the 2018 season.

Compensatory picks are now tradable assets thanks to a rule change for last year's draft. The 49ers could have been awarded additional seventh-round compensatory selections due to the losses of cornerback Leon Hall and tight end Logan Paulsen, but the maximum of 32 extra picks was already awarded.

Here is where the 49ers stand right now when it comes to 2019 draft picks:

  • Round 1: Own pick (No. 2 overall)
  • Round 2: Own pick
  • Round 3: Own pick
  • Round 4: Own pick
  • Round 5: Traded for Laken Tomlinson
  • Round 6: Own pick
  • Round 6: Compensatory pick
  • Round 7: Traded for Shon Coleman
