What 2022 draft picks do the 49ers own after Mike McDaniel’s departure?

Feb 6, 2022 at 5:33 PM--

On Sunday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan lost one of his most valuable assistants, offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel. The Miami Dolphins are naming McDaniel their new head coach, replacing Brian Flores.

Since McDaniel is multiracial, the 49ers will receive two third-round compensatory picks under the league program to reward teams for developing minority coaches. The first will come this year, and the second in 2023.

The 49ers are projected to own nine selections in the upcoming draft, with the first coming in the second round. San Francisco traded away its first-round picks in the next two drafts to move into position to acquire Trey Lance last year.

According to Over The Cap, the 49ers are projected to own the following nine selections in the upcoming draft. The overall position of many picks will shift downward once the NFL hands out compensatory selections. Please note that this is just a projection for now. A lot could happen between now and the start of the 2022 NFL Draft.

  • Round 2, Overall Pick 61
  • Round 3, Overall Pick 93
  • Round 3 (compensatory pick for McDaniel)
  • Round 4, Overall Pick 133
  • Round 5, Overall Pick 172
  • Round 6, Overall Pick 186 (from Broncos for LB Jonas Griffith)
  • Round 7 (compensatory pick)
  • Round 7 (compensatory pick)
  • Round 7 (compensatory pick)

The compensatory picks in the seventh round would come for the losses of defensive linemen Solomon Thomas and Kerry Hyder and quarterback C.J. Beathard last offseason.

The losses of wide receiver Kendrick Bourne and cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon were offset by the additions of pass rusher Samson Ebukam and center Alex Mack.

Sam Acho picks 49ers' Trey Lance as 2nd-year QB to make biggest jump in 2022

Last week, ESPN analyst Rob Ninkovich looked at the 2021 rookie quarterback class and stated he expects Trey Lance to make the "biggest jump" in Year 2. Another ESPN analyst, Sam Acho, agrees with that prediction. Why is Lance the best second-year quarterback, in Acho's opinion? It's because of the weapons around him. The 22-year-old quarterback will have wide receiver Deebo Samuel (assuming the offseason rift can be mended) and tight end George Kittle at his disposal. "Yes, there was a reason Zach Wilson was the second pick overall last year," Acho said. "There's a reason Trey Lance was third, right? Because he's that good as well." More critical for

A dark-horse trade candidate for the 49ers ahead of the 2022 season

For much of the offseason, many 49ers fans have believed the team will move on from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, either via trade or release. However, three months after the beginning of the 2022 league year, the veteran signal-caller still remains a member of the franchise as he rehabs from shoulder surgery. Additionally, at the linebacker position, many have clamored for the 49ers to trade Dre Greenlaw, given that he's a free agent in 2023 and currently carries a cap hit of $2.54 million after signing his tender as a restricted free agent. Fellow linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair broke out last season while Greenlaw missed 14 games due to multiple injuries, creating a formidable duo at the position with former All-Pro Fred Warner. However, there's a dark horse trade

The days surrounding July 4th are more often than not one of the slowest times of the year for NFL content, which makes it an opportune time to shamelessly borrow another site's good idea. With that in mind, let's build off a feature that was published earlier today by that selected one player from each team that could be in line for their first Pro Bowl appearance in 2022. Feature writer Nick Shook selected running back Elijah Mitchell for the 49ers, pointing at the unexpected level of success Mitchell had in his first NFL season after being drafted in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
