2011 NFL Draft Compensatory Picks: 49ers Awarded Two Seventh Round Picks

The NFL announced 2011 NFL Draft compensatory picks and the San Francisco 49ers received two seventh round picks. They will receive the 38th and 49th (fitting) picks of the seventh round, which equate to 238 and 249 overall. The 49ers were compensated because of their "losses" of free agents Arnaz Battle and Tony Pashos. They signed David Carr, but it was not enough to offset the pair of "losses." Given the players involved I feel it's important to put the quotation marks around losses.

Per the NFL, compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.  The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council.  Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula. 

Just for entertainment value, the 49ers have actually had the 238th and 249th picks at some point in franchise history. In 1995 the 49ers used the 238th overall pick to select Herb Coleman out of Trinity in Texas. He had no position listed, which might be one reason he didn't last long. The 49ers have had the 249th pick three separate times. In 1978 they selected Steve McDaniels out of Notre Dame (no position listed). In 1979 they selected wide receiver Dwight Clark out of Clemson. That pick worked out OK. In 2005 they selected tight end Billy Bajema out of Oklahoma State. That pick also worked out fairly well for the team as he was a decent blocking tight end.

I've posted all this year's compensatory picks after the jump.
