49ers Receive Compensatory Draft Picks

Posted by Taylor Price on March 25, 2011 – 3:46 PM

The NFL announced a total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2011 NFL Draft on Friday, awarding them to 23 teams including the 49ers.

The 49ers were awarded two seventh round picks – the 239th and 250th overall selections – and both selections can’t be traded. However, the 49ers have the most picks of any team in the upcoming draft with 12 selections.

The compensatory rules are explained on NFL.com:

“Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The 32 compensatory choices announced will supplement the 221 choices in the seven rounds of the 2011 NFL Draft (April 28-30), which will kick off in prime time for the second consecutive year.”

March 31st UPDATE:

The 49ers seventh-round draft picks have each moved back one overall slot because the Detroit Lions seventh-round pick was reinstated by the NFL.

2011 49ers draft picks
1. First round, No. 7 (7th overall)
2. Second round, No. 13 (45th overall)
3. Third round, No. 12 (76th overall)
4. Fourth round, No. 11 (108th overall)
5. Fourth round, No. 18 (115th overall, from San Diego in 2010 draft-day trade)
6. Fifth round, No. 10 (141st overall)
7. Sixth round, No. 9 (174th overall)
8. Sixth round, No. 25 (190th overall, from Seattle for DT Kentwan Balmer)
9. Seventh round, No. 8 (211th overall)
10. Seventh round, No. 30 (231st overall, from Detroit for QB Shaun Hill) (Jets original pick in the round)
11. Seventh round, No. 38 (239th overall, compensatory)
12. Seventh round, No. 49 (250th overall, compensatory)

    I would seriously consider Korey Lindsay from Southern Illinois. He’s got great height and tremendous hand skills. Would rather knock the ball down to make a play than try for a mistake ridden interception. I live close to SIU and would also consider Joe Allaria as a great slot reciever, he’s not afraid to go over the middle. And finally kicker Kyle Dougherty, simply the best at the 1AA level (FCS).

    What 49er players from last year’s squad have already been lost to free agency and signed with other teams?

    What is the situation with Alex Smith and Takeo Spikes.
    I believe that the 49ers need to sign them and not let them get away!

    We must have lost players to get these extra draft choices. What players have left the team for sure?

    Couldn’t agree more with that mock draft, good call man.

    If the 49ers draft peterson in first round, thet will not draft another CB in second round. Switch out Harris with someone else

    it will be a miracle if the corner from lsu is there at 7. more likely scenario is to draft the corner from nebraska

    There is a good possibility that Peterson will be there at 7. I mean we didnt expect Crabtree to be there at 10 the year we got him, dint be surprised if Peterson falls into the 49ers lap on April 28th

    Letting Go Of Nate Davis Killed The Draft This Year. If We Kept Him Everything Would Have Been In Order. Davis At Qb, Draft CB,DL,DB,RB,WR,LB,DL,OL,DB,OL,QB,RB.

    If Patrick Peterson and Von Miller are gone by #7…I say try to trade down and draft Mike Pouncey…We need a replacement at RG…Then our O-Line will be solidified…Or trade down for Gabe Carimi and slide him to RT and put Anthony Davis at RG…That’ll also give us a few more picks int he 2nd,3rd, and/or 4th rounds which adds depth…I also think at some point draft Ricky Stanzi to develop and re-sign Alex Smith for 1-year or sign Vince Young for 1-year or sign Matt Leinart for 1-year to allow Stanzi to develop

  17. By Wil Northup on Mar 27, 2011 | Reply

    The niners need a all pro center to complete the O-line than get a QB to develop, there 1st round QB selections have been terrible.

  18. By ronnie macias on Mar 27, 2011 | Reply

    patrick peterson, marcell dareus, von miller or prince Amakumara would be the best pick at no.7
    we cud pick a better qb in the later rounds. gabbert and newton arent all that great

  19. By Sean on Mar 27, 2011 | Reply

    I say we stick with Smith. His absolute last shot at QB. If we suck again we will be near the top for a free shot on Andrew Luck who would be welcome with his old coach. If Smith actually produces then we can see how it goes next year in the draft and maybe trade Smith for a higher pick and snag Luck.

    We need some fast CBs this year than will actually cover and not give up the deep plays.

    I think harbaugh sees something in alex smith and him having been a damn good quarterback himself maybe all the alex smith haters should stop hating and put some faith in our new coach i think alex just needs some stability as far as maybe keeping an offensive coordinator for more than 1 year.

  21. By Irvin on Mar 27, 2011 | Reply

    The 49ers really need cb’s. Harbaugh will know what to do about the qb position.

    if patrick peterson is gone then they should get colin kaepernick because he is a great teammate and has a great personality he will also work very hard during practice andwould try to start he is a great person to have on the team.

    Hi we need a CB Patrick Paterson and then a DT to help patrick Wills don’t you guy agree,

  27. By Jesse Vallejos on Mar 28, 2011 | Reply

    I think any QB that comes out of the draft is a pipe dream if you want instant results. Development! Alex with a QB minded head coach may elevate Alex to the next level. Peterson may be the missing link for our Defence. If he isnt there we need a Charles haley type DE. If Alex doesnt improve noticeably, next year will have way more choices in the market and draft.

    I agree with they need an all- star center to go with the 2 lineman that were really good from last years draft!! get rid of alex smith im sick of seeing him hes garbage he had way to many chances he has done crap his whole career GOODBYE ALEX SMITH!!!!

  29. By jesus on Mar 28, 2011 | Reply

    we should give alex smith his last chance but we have to draft and develop a qb. our team has got too much potential to throw away and have another crappy season.

    yea we need a QB CB DT RB OL OLB but can SMITH lets play like we want to win 49ers SUPERBOWL

  31. By Troy Smith on Mar 29, 2011 | Reply

    We need to go DEF in the 1st, QB in the second for future development and pick p a receiver who can actually makes plays. We should probably be more DEF minded throughout. We have to grab a QB from FA after this CBA junk is cleared up. That would surely make us the contenders that we were supposed to be last year. Let’s go NINERS!!!!!!!!!

  32. By Norm-Ski on Mar 29, 2011 | Reply

    CB and QB were our real problem spots last year. However this is garbage draft for QB’s, no matter what the media hype is saying..Address the defense or take best player available in every spot.

  33. By Edward on Mar 29, 2011 | Reply

    you really think Tyrod Taylor or Stanzi are going to be there in the seventh round. Your nuts. Moch would be a nice pick. If we don’t get Peterson at 7th, I agree with Quinn, not Amukamara, we could trade down and get him. We should trade up for Marcel Darus. Or trade down and get that big DT from Baylor.

  34. By Edward on Mar 29, 2011 | Reply

    1st- th – Peterson/Quinn/or trade down and take Phil Taylor, DL, Baylor or Amakumara
    3rd-Moch if still there/Tyrod Taylor
    4th-Hertzlich/TJ Yates/Casey Matthews
    4th-Rod Cartwright/Brandon Harris/Jaquizz Rodgers

    what the niners should do is make a run at carson palmer. doesnt help for the draft but a veteran leader that is a proven player is really what we need.

  36. By crazysamoan on Mar 29, 2011 | Reply

    I think the niners are gunnin for Patrick Peterson with the seventh pick but if he aint there then don’t be surprised if the end up getting J.J Watt for that 3-4 defense cause we all know that we lack putting preasure on the opposing teams Qb lol, they just be sitting back there forever !

  37. By jose cisneros on Mar 30, 2011 | Reply

    I say draft Peterson or Miller then trade a 4th and a 6th round pick to move back into the late 1st round and select a qb, ol, olb, or cb.

    Alex was not even given a tender to stay with the team…I think that speaks volumes on what Harbaugh thinks of Alex. Please, Please, Please, no Alex!!

  39. By jim craqndell on Mar 31, 2011 | Reply

    the 49ers must use 1st pick on defence cb or dl and qb 2nd round pick please

  40. By Charles Hann on Mar 31, 2011 | Reply

    Please Harbaugh, make a move and get us Kolb or Palmer. We dont have time to develop a qb and there arent any we can get in this draft. Alex is complete garbage he has been for his whole career. Just cut our losses on him already. Trade him for a pick and package something up for a good vet Kolb would be perfect. Have enough picks to take care of that number one then focus on cb,dt,ol,or olb, but if the man that touches the ball every offensive play is a bum were doomed again.

    I think our biggest need in the draft (aside from a QB, which I wouldn’t waste a pick on this year) is secondary. For what we are paying for Clements, opposing QB’s should be afraid to throw his way, instead teams know he will more often than not go for a pick which has been exploited very badly over the past couple of years. I think Prince is the safest bet. CB’s are usually a very safe pick if they are top ten pick worthy, history proves this. For a second pick we need DL help, everyone keeps saying we need OLB’s but I don’t think that is a smart choice. There should be some very good players at the position in FA, not to mention there will be a few solid OLB’s in the third and fourth round (in which we have two picks in the fourth), Did everyone forget that we have Navarro Bowman? Hes versatile and can play both inside and outside LB. I’m mostly afraid of Harbaugh keeping Alex Smith cause he probably thinks he can resurrect his career.

    We need peterson first round and whatever qb is left at the 45th overall pick for a backup for alex with our new coach he can make a star out of alex and any other qb. All alex did wrong was turnovers and consistancy he has the potential and the numbers to be a great qb.

  43. By mike on Apr 8, 2011 | Reply

    seems everyones forgetting about one of the greatest qb of all times favorite qb kellen moore out of boise state. i think he would be a great late round pick up for
