49ers get an extra third-round pick in May

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The 49ers were awarded a third-round draft pick, No. 100 overall, for the free agents they lost in 2013, including safety Dashon Goldson, who signed a multi-year deal with the Buccaneers. That gives San Francisco 11 picks in the May draft, including six selections in the first three rounds. They do not have a sixth-round pick after dealing it to Jacksonville for Blaine Gabbert.

The Steelers, Ravens and Packers also were awarded third-round compensatory picks. Under the rules for compensatory picks, a team losing more or better free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The 49ers lost Goldson, Delanie Walker, Ted Ginn, Ricky Jean-Francois and Isaac Sopoaga in free agency. They signed Glenn Dorsey, Phil Dawson, Craig Dahl and Dan Skuta. The 49ers also have extra picks in the second round -- their own and Kansas City's former pick -- and the seventh round. Last year they entered the draft with 13 picks.

SF's 11 picks
1st round: No. 30 overall, own pick
2nd round: No. 56 overall, from Kansas City
2nd round: No. 61 overall, own pick
3rd round: No. 77 overall, from Tennessee
3rd round: No. 94 overall, own pick
3rd round: No. 100 overall, compensatory selection
4th round: TBA, own pick
5th round: TBA, own pick
7th round: TBA, from New Orleans
7th round: TBA, from Carolina
7th round: TBA, own pick.
