The 49ers were awarded a compensatory pick in the fourth round of the April draft, the NFL announced on Friday.
The 49ers’ additional pick – No. 37 in the fourth round and No. 143 overall – is a result of the team losing guard Alex Boone in free agency last year to the Minnesota Vikings. The 49ers had no qualifying free-agent gains, according to the league.
“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 NFL stated in announcing the 32 compensatory selections.
Compensatory picks are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.
Compensatory picks can be traded this year for the first time.
The NFL draft is scheduled for April 27-29 in Philadelphia. Here are the compensatory picks announced by the NFL with Round, No. in round, and No. overall:
3-36-100 Los Angeles Rams
3-40-104 Kansas City
3-43-107 New York Jets
4-35-141* Los Angeles Rams
4-37-143 San Francisco
5-37-180 Kansas City
5-39-182 Green Bay
5-40-183 New England
6-33-216 Kansas City
6-35-218 Kansas City
* As the result of League discipline, the New York Giants’ original selection in Round 4 (4-23-130) has been relegated to selection 4-34-140. Because that pick is a regular selection, it does not appear on the above list of compensatory draft selections.
