No compensatory picks expected for 49ers

The 49ers currently own each of their seven draft picks and do not figure to gain any more selections through the NFL's compensatory system.Compensatory draft picks are awarded to teams that have net losses via free agency from the previous year. The 49ers had five losses and five gains. Therefore, the 49ers do not appear to be in line to be awarded any additional picks.Players who become free agents because they were released or not tendered do not count as part of the compensatory formula. That's why Nate Clements or David Carr do not count as losses, nor do Madieu Williams, Larry Grant and Blake Costanzo count as gains.The NFL typically announces compensatory picks in late-March.
The NFL draft is scheduled for Thursday, April 26 (first round); Friday, April 27 (second and third rounds); and Saturday, April 28 (fourth-seventh rounds).
