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

While the 2022 NFL Draft was just two months ago and the 49ers are contending for another playoff appearance, it is never too early to look at the next batch of prospects that could potentially elevate the roster during the current championship window. Earlier last week, PFF's Mike Renner highlighted one draft prospect that every NFL team should be watching for the 2023 NFL Draft, and provided an interesting selection for the 49ers: sixth-year USC offensive lineman Andrew Vorhees. Renner acknowledged San Francisco's lack of a first-round selection in 2023, which is why he went deeper in the class to find a potential talent for San Francisco,

Others still have work to do, finding solutions to bolster potential weaknesses. Patra looked at each team's biggest weakness and ranked it against other teams' biggest weaknesses. The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 2, with the center position being identified as the Bay Area team's biggest weakness. Assuming right tackle Mike McGlinchey returns healthy, the 49ers appear set (as far as knowing who the starters will be) along the edges of the offensive line.

In May, Pro Football Focus ranked recently-married San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner as the best in the NFL at his position, ahead of other star defenders like Darius Leonard. Warner's elite status in the analytics site's eyes helped elevate the 49ers' unit in Pro Football Focus' ranking of the off-ball linebackers. That simply means linebackers who don't line up on the outside as edge rushers. San Francisco's linebackers grabbed the top spot in analyst
