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

With the 2024 NFL Draft less than a week away, ESPN contributors have highlighted some prospects who have seen their draft stock rise throughout the evaluation process. Jordan Reid and Matt Miller pinpointed players who could hear their names called at the end of the first round. Interestingly, both of the prospects identified by Reid and Miller play in the trenches but on different sides of the ball. The San Francisco 49ers are widely expected to draft an offensive lineman with their first selection—No. 31 overall. The team mostly ignored the group in free agency. However, it wouldn't surprise many people if the

While most expect the San Francisco 49ers to target an offensive lineman with their first-round pick, NFL Media lead draft writer Eric Edholm has the team going in another direction with the No. 31 overall pick. In his final mock draft of the year, Edholm has the team selecting former Illinois defensive tackle Jer'Zhan Newton, who also goes by "Johnny." "If you're worried Newton's skill set overlaps too much with that of Javon Hargrave, consider that Hargrave is set to hit the salary cap at more than $28 million in the 2025 season -- when he'll be 32 years old," Edholm explained. "As a relentless scheme-wrecker, Newton would help alleviate the

"With Trent Williams entering the twilight of his career, the 49ers have to find an eventual replacement on the edge," Brooks noted.
