With the NFL draft quickly approaching as draft season begins to turn up the volume, the San Francisco 49ers have been issued a bounty of compensatory picks.

On Friday afternoon, the NFL announced 34 compensatory picks for the 2024 NFL draft, with the 49ers being awarded five. The 49ers were awarded compensatory picks in the third (99), fourth (132), fifth (175) and two in the sixth round (211 and 215).

However, their third-round compensatory pick, No. 99 overall, will move to the Washington Commanders as a part of the mid-season trade for edge rusher Chase Young.

The 49ers are expected to have ten picks in the upcoming draft, starting with first, second, third, and two fourth-round picks. The 49ers will also have a fifth, two sixths, and two seventh-round picks.
