49ers lose draft pick after accounting error

The NFL is penalizing the 49ers twice in the 2024 NFL draft thanks to an accounting error at the end of the 2022 season. San Francisco will have its fifth-round picks in next year’s draft revoked, and their No. 131 pick in the fourth round this year will be moved to the end of the round instead.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle posted on Twitter that the league determined the error wasn’t made intentionally and that the 49ers would’ve been under the salary cap even without the mistake.
