What picks do 49ers have in 2022 NFL Draft?
Thanks to last year’s trade-up for Trey Lance, San Francisco is without a first-round selection in this year’s NFL Draft, as well as the 2023 draft, too. It also sent off a third-round compensatory selection to the Miami Dolphins as part of last year’s trade-up as well.
Nevertheless, the 49ers have a total of nine picks in this year’s draft, five of which fall on day three (Rounds 4 through 7):
- Round 2, No. 61 overall
- Round 3, No. 93 overall
- Round 3, No. 105 overall (compensatory)
- Round 4, No. 134 overall
- Round 5, No. 172 overall
- Round 6, No. 187 overall (from Broncos)
- Round 6, No. 220 overall (compensatory)
- Round 6, No. 221 overall (compensatory)
- Round 7, No. 262 overall (compensatory)
For those not quite familiar, compensatory selections are typically awarded for teams suffering a net loss of qualifying free agents, although the Niners were awarded comp picks for other teams hiring away minority coaching candidates, which is the case for this year’s Round 3 pick.
