201 NFL Draft order: 49ers secure final pick of the sixth round!

New, comments

The 2015 NFL season is officially a wrap, and that means the run to the 2016 NFL Draft is truly on for all 32 teams. The Denver Broncos win in Super Bowl 50 means they will pick No. 32 in each round (31 in the 1st round with New England stripped of their pick), and the Carolina Panthers picking No. 31. That completes the draft order for the first three rounds leading up to the eventual comp picks.

This final setting of the draft order actually has some impact on the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers dealt tight end Vernon Davis to the Denver Broncos this season, and one of the picks they received in return was the latter's sixth round pick. That means the 49ers will now pick No. 32 in the sixth round. The 49ers also have either their own sixth round pick, or the Dallas Cowboys sixth round pick, depending on which was dealt to the Minnesota Vikings for Gerald Hodges.

Once again, here is what the team's draft picks currently look like:

1. First round: Own pick - No. 7
2. Second round: Own pick  - No. 6 (37 overall - normally would be 38, but Patriots were stripped of first round pick))
3. Third round: Own pick - No. 5 (68 overall)
4. Fourth round: Own pick - No. 7 (overall for this and remaining picks depends on potential third round comp picks)
5. Fifth round: San Diego Chargers (2015 draft-day trade) - No. 3
6. Fifth round: Own pick - No. 6
7. Sixth round: Dallas Cowboys (2015 draft-day trade) - No. 3 - 49ers traded a sixth for Hodges. There is no word yet if it was their pick or this Cowboys pick
8. Sixth round: Denver Broncos (Vernon Davis trade) - No. 32
