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) *

* Compensatory selections

Breaking down the 49ers' Day 2 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft

After a countless number of drafts where the 49ers built their roster via the first round, San Francisco dove into uncharted waters last weekend, as they had their first selection at No. 61 overall, since they traded up for their franchise quarterback in Trey Lance last offseason, sending their last year's first-rounder, this year's first-rounder, and next year's first-rounder as a part of the package. However, that doesn't mean the 49ers weren't productive in the draft, as they selected nine players in an extremely deep draft class, where some players that were expected to go in the middle rounds fell out of the draft altogether. Here's an breakdown of the 49ers Day 2 draft

UDFA Jason Poe is the most intriguing prospect of the 49ers draft class

Jason Poe is a bit of a unicorn. The offensive lineman from Mercer stands 6'1" tall, weighs 300 pounds, and runs a 4.89 40-yard dash. He also put up 34 reps on the bench press, a 31.5" vertical jump, and a 9'3" broad jump. Jason Poe is an athlete. To hear him tell it, he's an interior offensive lineman slash fullback. And when you watch him run routes, you can see that he absolutely could profile at fullback. Just for reference, current 49ers' Pro Bowl FB Kyle Juszczyk ran a 4.77 40-yard dash at the combine at 6'1" and 235 pounds. Jason Poe C,OG/FB Mercer University 6'1",
