No compensatory picks expected for 49ers


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).

Robinson, Lynch questionable for 49ers' next game

Robinson, Lynch questionable for 49ers' next game

SANTA CLARA – Cornerback Rashard Robinson and outside linebacker Aaron Lynch might not be available when the 49ers return after the bye week to play the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 6.

Neither Robinson nor Lynch sustained long-term injury, 49ers coach Chip Kelly said on Monday, a day after they left the game in the third quarter of the 49ers’ 34-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both players underwent MRI examinations on Monday.

Robinson sustained a partially torn MCL in his left knee. The injury will not require surgery, but it is uncertain how long he will be out of action. Lynch sustained a high left ankle sprain. He is also questionable for the 49ers’ next game.

The 49ers players had meetings on Monday before Kelly dismissed the team until next Tuesday.

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead also left Sunday’s game due to an injury in the third quarter. Kelly suggested Armstead’s shoulder condition will not prevent him from being ready to play upon the team’s return to action.

49ers seeking first-round pick for Joe Staley? Chip Kelly responds

SANTA CLARA – Coach Chip Kelly said Monday he has never had a conversation with 49ers general manager Trent Baalke about trading five-time Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Staley.

“No one’s ever talked to me (or had) discussions with me about Joe being traded,” Kelly said. “We need Joe here.

“I’m not in charge of the overall roster. I’ll give my weigh in and weigh in where everybody is. But my point to that thing is we’ve never had a conversation about that, and we talk about everything on a daily basis. That’s never come up.”

Pro Football Talk on Sunday night reported the 49ers are seeking a first-round draft pick for Staley. According to the report, the list of interested teams include the Vikings, Giants, Cardinals, Seahawks and Patriots.

The trade deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 1. The 49ers players report back to Santa Clara on that day after the bye week.

“And I understand how it comes up because we’re 1-6 and Joe’s a veteran player,” said Kelly. “It’s just kind of the nature of the sport you play.”

When asked if Kelly spoke to Staley on Monday to assure him that there has been no trade talk, Kelly answered, “I don’t make a habit about talking to our guys about erroneous reports.”

Staley is under contract to the 49ers through the 2019 season.
