49ers pick up a pair of 2016 draft picks
The 49ers will have a little added picking power in the 2016 NFL Draft.
In trades this week, San Francisco snagged a pair of extra selections in next year’s draft, getting a fifth-round pick from San Diego when trading down on Thursday and a sixth-round pick from Dallas for a 2015 seventh-round pick on Saturday.
The Eagles came away with the highest future pick, snagging a 2016 third-rounder from Detroit for a 2015 fourth-round pick. However, the Lions are likely to get a 2016 third-rounder as a compensatory pick after losing defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in free agency.
Here is the full list of future selections acquired during the 2015 NFL Draft:
Philadelphia: 2016 third-round selection (from Detroit).
San Francisco: 2016 fifth-round selection (from San Diego), 2016 sixth-round selection (from Dallas).
Detroit: 2016 fifth-round selection (from Denver).
Washington: 2016 sixth-round selection (from New Orleans).
