49ers set to own 10 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft

Jan 15, 2021 at 8:56 AM--


The hiring of Robert Saleh by the New York Jets means that the San Francisco 49ers are set to receive two compensatory third-round picks, one coming in each of the next two drafts. That means, as of right now, general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan are set to own the following 10 picks in the upcoming draft.

It is important to note that while the current overall pick numbers are listed below, the selections from the fourth round will shift downward once the NFL awards compensatory selections.

  • Round 1, Pick 12
  • Round 2, Pick 43
  • Round 3 (compensatory pick)
  • Round 4, Pick 108
  • Round 5, Pick 139
  • Round 5, Pick 157 (via NO)
  • Round 5 (compensatory pick)
  • Round 6, Pick 170
  • Round 7, Pick 194 (via NYJ)
  • Round 7, Pick 204

As stated, the third-round selection comes thanks to the Jets' hiring of Saleh and the NFL's minority-hiring program. It will be the team's only third-round pick after trading its own selection to Washington as part of the deal to acquire offensive tackle Trent Williams.

According to Over The Cap, San Francisco is expected to receive a compensatory fifth-round pick for losing wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders in free agency last offseason. The team owns its own fifth-rounder and received another from the New Orleans Saints as part of linebacker Kwon Alexander's trade.

The additional seventh-round selection comes courtesy of the 49ers trading a 2022 sixth-round pick to the Jets in exchange for defensive end Jordan Willis and the 2021 draft pick.

2021 salary cap floor raised to $180 million, giving 49ers a little wiggle room

The San Francisco 49ers have been working this offseason with the assumption that the 2021 salary cap would end up at the floor of $175 million. "We're operating under the premise of the floor, which is 175," general manager John Lynch told reporters in January. "We felt like that was best to operate off of that and kind of formulate our plans off of that. If it's anything on top, that's gravy for us. I think that's how a lot of teams are operating." It was always assumed that the salary cap would end up being higher, possibly as high as between $180 million and $185 million. But it's better to work with the floor and avoid any surprises. The 49ers — and all NFL teams — officially got a (very) little more wiggle room on



49ers the most likely to go from worst to first in 2021, says Gil Brandt

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt took a look at the eight most-likely candidates to go from worst to first and enjoy a Washington Football Team-type turnaround during the 2021 season. Washington won just three games in 2019 and then increased that total by four in 2020. Seven victories aren't overly impressive, but in a season during which the NFC East was downright awful, it was enough to earn the division crown. At the top of Brandt's ranking are the San Francisco 49ers. Kyle Shanahan's squad was in the Super Bowl just over a year ago, but injuries devastated the roster, and the depth chart was transformed by Week 2, resulting in just six wins. Then
