49ers awarded two compensatory picks in 2011 NFL Draft

Mar 25, 2011 at 4:35 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers gained quarterback David Carr but lost tackle Tony Pashos and receiver Arnaz Battle last offseason. By the NFL's formula, based on the ratio of signed to departed players from last year, the 49ers were awarded two compensatory picks in the 2011 NFL Draft bringing their total number of selections to a league-high 12.

The team was given the 238th and 249th overall selections, both of which are in the seventh round.

Compensatory picks cannot be traded. However, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee believes that the 49ers have enough selections to possibly move up in the Draft, something the team did do in 2010.

The 12 selections in the 2011 NFL Draft give the 49ers the most draft picks they have had during one Draft since 1991, when the team had 13. Those selections included players like Ted Washington, Ricky Watters, and Merton Hanks.

Below is a list of all of the 49ers' 2011 NFL Draft picks.

Round 1, No. 7 (7th overall)
Round 2, No. 13 (45th overall)
Round 3, No. 12 (76th overall)
Round 4, No. 11 (108th overall)
Round 4, No. 18 (115th overall, from San Diego)
Round 5, No. 10 (141st overall)
Round 6, No. 9 (174th overall)
Round 6, No. 25 (190th overall, from Seattle)
Round 7, No. 8 (210th overall)
Round 7, No. 30 (230th overall, from Detroit)
Round 7, No. 38 (238th overall, compensatory)
Round 7, No. 49 (249th overall, compensatory)

George Kittle joined comedian Kevin Hart on his LOL Network show, Cold as Balls (h/t TheSFNiners). The San Francisco 49ers tight end discussed football, his desire to win a Super Bowl, his love of Harry Potter, his cosplay of choice if he went to San Diego Comic-Con, and more while submerged in an ice bath. Kittle also revealed his desire for the NFL to add a second bye week for NFL teams. "Seventeen games is a lot," Kittle told Hart. "It's a lot of games with one bye, whether it's Week 4 or the bye is Week 11. I'm advocating for two byes. If you can get that to happen, that would be cool." Hart assured the tight end that it was a done deal. Kittle also cleverly avoided



PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth

2nd-year QB Rankings: NFL insiders share differing evaluations of 49ers' Trey Lance

You can tell it's the dead part of the NFL offseason when random rankings start popping up across the sports world. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler went to NFL execs, scouts, and coaches, though, asking which second-year quarterback is poised for a big season in 2022. Those NFL insiders ranked the sophomore passers, which Fowler then compiled into his own ranking based on 2022 expectations. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance came in at No. 5, behind Trevor Lawrence, Mac Jones, Zach Wilson, and Justin Fields. Not so coincidentally, each of those quarterbacks has more starts under their belts than Lance, who started two games in 2021. Lawrence and Jones started 17 games, Wilson started 13, and Fields started 10. The only second-year quarterback listed below Lance is
