49ers aren’t among teams awarded compensatory draft picks

The NFL announced the compensatory draft picks for this year, and, as expected, the San Francisco 49ers did not receive any additional selections. That means the 49ers still have six total picks in next month's draft and lack a selection between rounds one and five.

The New England Patriots received the most compensatory picks this year with four, including two third-rounders. Six other teams each received three additional selections, including the division-rival Seattle Seahawks. They received third-, fourth-, and sixth-round selections. Another NFC West team, the Los Angeles Rams, received a third-rounder.

In total, 32 compensatory picks were awarded.

Compensatory picks are awarded to teams that lost more valuable free agents than they gained the year before. That was not the case for the 49ers in 2019.

San Francisco owns the following selections in the 2020 NFL Draft.

  • Round 1, Pick 31
  • Round 5, Pick 156 (from Broncos)
  • Round 5, Pick 176
  • Round 6, Pick 210
  • Round 7, Pick 217 (from Lions)
  • Round 7, Pick 245

The 49ers traded their second-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for pass rusher Dee Ford last offseason, and then sent their third- and fourth-rounders to the Denver Broncos in October in exchange for wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

Sanders is scheduled to become a free agent next week and stated on Monday that the 49ers have not made an offer to him nor have they initiated contract talks.

Daniel Jeremiah has 49ers addressing O-line in latest mock draft

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers have some weak points along the offensive line. It's tough to dispute that. Three of the team's starters—Jake Brendel, Colton McKivitz, and Aaron Banks—received overall Pro Football Focus grades under 70.0. Clearly, this is an area that could use improvement during the offseason. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah proposes just that in his latest mock draft, predicting the 49ers will select offensive lineman Graham Barton out of Duke with the No. 31 overall pick. "A left tackle at Duke, Barton would slide inside to guard and has the athleticism to do all that is required in Kyle Shanahan's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond.

The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.
