NFL Draft order officially released by league

Mar 29, 2016 at 9:55 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers draft order in next month's NFL Draft has been known for some time now and you have been able to view it within our Draft War Room for a few weeks now. However, the NFL made it official on Tuesday morning by finally announcing the entire order of all seven rounds.

The 49ers have 12 total selections, including the four compensatory selections that were awarded earlier this month. Their picks are bottom heavy, meaning the majority of their selections come during round four or later. San Francisco owns three selections in the first three rounds and nine in the final four with four selections in the sixth round alone. They own at least one selection in every round except the seventh.

The team's first selection comes seventh overall, which is prime real estate to pick up a top talent. With the Colin Kaepernick situation still somewhat unstable, the overwhelming majority of mock drafts have the 49ers selecting a quarterback with their top selection with Cal QB Jared Goff and North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz leading the projections.

It is also possible that the team will look to trade down and gain more ammunition within the top half of the draft. However, some within the media have even speculated that the team might look to move up in the first round, but that would be a very uncharacteristic move by general manager Trent Baalke.

Since January, the team has been looking at players at nearly every position.

49ers Selections

Round 1, Pick 7 (7)
Round 2, Pick 6 (37)
Round 3, Pick 5 (68)
Round 4, Pick 7 (105)
Round 4, Pick 35 (133) *
Round 5, Pick 3 (142)
Round 5, Pick 6 (145)
Round 5, Pick 37 (174) *
Round 6, Pick 3 (178)
Round 6, Pick 32 (207)
Round 6, Pick 36 (211) *
Round 6, Pick 38 (213) *

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says Trey Sermon is improving but 'there is a pecking order'

Trey Sermon was a third-round pick in April's draft. However, the San Francisco 49ers' sixth-round pick, Elijah Mitchell, is the team's starting running back and leading rusher. Sermon had 10 carries during Sunday's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Before that, his last carry came in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. Sermon moved up the depth chart because Mitchell was inactive due to rib and finger injuries. Kyle Shanahan insists that Sermon is showing improvement. On Monday, one day after the team's Week 11 win, the 49ers coach spoke with reporters and discussed the developing rookie running back. "I think he's better now than when he was given the last opportunity," Shanahan said of Sermon. "I know I get these questions about Trey
