The San Francisco 49ers are poised to enter the 2024 NFL Draft with a substantial number of picks, as projected by salary cap site OverTheCap.com. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan are expected to have 11 selections, including four compensatory picks, in April's event.

Here is the breakdown of the anticipated selections for the 49ers:

  • Round 1
  • Round 2
  • Round 3
  • Round 3 (Compensatory)
  • Round 4
  • Round 4 (via Cowboys)
  • Round 5 (Compensatory)
  • Round 6 (Compensatory)
  • Round 6 (Compensatory)
  • Round 7
  • Round 7 (via Broncos)

Being one of the four remaining teams in the playoffs means the 49ers will make their first pick late on Thursday, April 25, the first day of the three-day draft.

OverTheCap.com explained the compensatory pick projection, indicating that the 49ers are expected to receive a third-round selection for the departure of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, a fifth-round pick for the departure of defensive end Samson Ebukam, and sixth-round picks for safety Jimmie Ward and linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair.

While cornerback Emmanuel Moseley leaving qualifies in the formula, teams can only be awarded up to four compensatory picks for player departures.

The signing of defensive tackle Javon Hargrave offset the departure of tackle Mike McGlinchey. The additions of quarterback Sam Darnold, cornerback Isaiah Oliver, and defensive end Clelin Ferrell canceled out defensive end Charles Omenihu, guard Daniel Brunskill, and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway leaving.

In the move to acquire defensive end Chase Young, San Francisco traded the compensatory pick it was slated to receive for the departures of former defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans (now Texans head coach) and former director of player personnel Ran Carthon (now Titans GM).

The additional fourth-round selection comes from the trade that sent quarterback Trey Lance to the Dallas Cowboys. The 49ers acquired an extra seventh-round draft pick in the deal for defensive end Randy Gregory, sending their own sixth-round pick to the Denver Broncos for the player.

San Francisco's fifth-round draft pick went to the Carolina Panthers as part of the trade for running back Christian McCaffrey.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Dre Greenlaw will receive the Dwight Clark Award this year. The San Francisco 49ers linebacker will take the stage on Thursday, May 16, at the fourth annual Dwight Clark Legacy Series in San Jose to accept the prestigious award. Each year, a current 49ers player is honored with the Dwight Clark Legacy Award, presented to a player who best exemplifies the late receiver's spirit of teamwork. Linebacker Fred Warner was the recipient last year. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead, now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, was the recipient in 2022, while tight end George Kittle earned the first-ever award in 2021. "Dre is more than deserving of the 2024 Dwight Clark Award," Warner said of his teammate, per Maiocco. "The

5 reasons why 49ers QB Brock Purdy will be better in 2024

The San Francisco 49ers appear to have found their quarterback. It was a bumpy road on the journey to locate him, too. There was the up-and-down tenure of Jimmy Garoppolo, whose relationship with Head Coach Kyle Shanahan seemed dysfunctional, at times. Then there was the short-lived Trey Lance experiment. Garoppolo and Lance are no longer being with the team, and one major reason is the emergence of Brock Purdy as the team's QB. Purdy finished his second season with a trip to the Super Bowl, after having a Pro Bowl season in which he finished with 4,280 yards and 31 touchdowns. He also led the league in multiple statistics, including passer rating (113.0) and QBR (72.8). Additionally, Purdy finished fourth in NFL MVP voting. But a year ago, no one knew what to

With the 2024 NFL Draft less than two weeks away, NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter recently identified the ideal top two draft picks for each team. The San Francisco 49ers have 10 selections in the upcoming draft, with their first two picks at No. 31 overall and No. 63. Reuter noted, "I kept some semblance of realism in this process, however, assigning each player only once and making reasonable projections of where prospects may be selected." Who are the standout picks for the 49ers? Reuter envisions the team addressing both offense and defense with their initial selections. It's widely anticipated that San Francisco will bolster its offensive line with

Six worst first-round draft picks in 49ers' history

By Marc Adams

It is less than two weeks away from the 2024 NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers finally have a first-round draft pick, after not having one the last two years. Who will they select? Will it be a defensive player? An offensive player? They could use help on the offensive line and in the secondary and defensive line. And they may also have multiple holes to fill a year from now. Either way, the 49ers need to hit on these draft picks, especially in the early rounds, where they haven't always been at their best. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have some first-round misses, like DT Solomon Thomas and LB Rueben Foster. But are those the worst first-round picks in team history? Neither made this list, though some will argue that Thomas should be on it, mainly because he was taken
