The 49ers were awarded two seventh round compensatory picks with the 238th and 249th overall selections. Now the 49ers have the most picks of any team in the upcoming draft with 12 selections.
Both are included in this San Francisco 49ers Mock Draft.
No trades are included in this mock and no quarterbacks are taken because the NFL strike will most likely be averted.
This is not a good year for NFL players to be striking (not in this economy). A lawsuit to end the lockout will be heard on April 6 where players are requesting an injunction.
The outcome could be that the Plaintiffs (Players) and Defendants (NFL owners) come to an out-of-court settlement in late May or early June resolving the whole situation. A settlement would provide a profitable solution for everyone.
The 1982 NFL strike lasted 2 months and the 1987 NFL strike lasted a month.
Neither the owners nor players want to lose mountains of money. The 2011 NFL Draft will take place in April, the strike will probably be averted before the summer, and then NFL owners will scramble to sign free agents.
