What future draft picks 49ers can offer in potential trades

NBC Sports

The recent losses of Robert Saleh and Martin Mayhew come with an upside for the 49ers.

The 49ers will land compensatory selections in the third rounds of each of the next three drafts, beginning this year. The NFL draft is scheduled for Thursday, April 29, through Saturday, May 1.

Saleh, the 49ers' defensive coordinator the past four seasons, was hired as head coach of the New York Jets. Mayhew left his post as 49ers vice president of player personnel to become the Washington Football Team's general manager.

Due to a resolution the league passed this season, the 49ers received compensatory draft picks for developing minority candidates for top-level NFL positions.

The 49ers figure to factor into speculation around some of the quarterback situations that will unfold this NFL offseason.

The Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford have agreed to part ways. The Lions are open for trade talks.

Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson has requested a trade. But general manager Nick Caserio on Friday said the Texans have “zero interest” in trading Watson.

Here is a look at the 49ers’ scheduled draft picks over the next three years and what general manager John Lynch has available to offer in any trades:
