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)

Why 49ers Nick Bosa appears "sluggish" through two games

By Chris Beno
Sep 19

After missing this year's OTA's and Training Camp in a hold out effort for a new contract, San Francisco 49ers All-Pro Defensive End Nick Bosa finally became the highest paid defensive player in NFL history, just days before the team's week one matchup against the Pittsburg Steelers. Bosa signed a five-year $170 million extension with the team. It's easy to say Bosa's slow start in that week one matchup was due to his holdout and lack of football activity with the team this offseason. However, to say that sluggishness carried over into their week two matchup against their division rival Los Angeles Rams isn't entirely true. Far too often players (especially defensive players) are critiqued on stats alone. While stats help players earn end of the year accolades, they don't

Two streaks come to an end for 49ers QB Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla
Sep 17

With two touchdown passes and the victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy became the first quarterback in NFL history to win each of his first six career regular-season starts and throw at least two touchdown passes in each start. He also became the first quarterback in NFL history with a passer rating of 95 or higher in each of his first six career regular-season starts. Both of those streaks came to an end for the 49ers quarterback. Purdy was not credited with a touchdown pass. He initially had one to Deebo Samuel, but it was later changed to a rushing touchdown by the wide receiver. Purdy finished the game with a passer rating of

Sep 21

The San Francisco 49ers will finally return to Levi's Stadium in Week 3 for their home opener, where they'll host the New York Giants in a Thursday Night Football showdown in hopes of improving to 3-0. Heading into the game, the 49ers are seen as ten-point favorites, with the over/under placed at 44.5 points per game, as the Giants will be without star running back Saquon Barkley, left tackle Andrew Thomas, outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari, and left guard Ben Bredeson on the road. In a weekly installment, I'll be dishing out some fun predictions on the game, rather than just providing an outright winner, although that will still continue in certain close games. This week, I've got six intriguing predictions, with some for the 49ers and others for the
