49ers draft picks 2022: When does San Francisco pick? Full list of NFL Draft selections

San Francisco finds itself in a strange situation heading into the 2022 NFL Draft. Despite not having a ton of roster holes, the 49ers don’t have a pick until No. 61 overall, and the looming Jimmy Garoppolo situation has the team’s quarterback prospects for next year looking uncertain, whether it turns to Trey Lance or not.

Kyle Shanahan is in far from the worst situation at the helm, but the Niners also have other situations to address. Pending contract extensions for Deebo Samuel and Nick Bosa have held up the team’s offseason plans, and their need for depth at pass rusher has become more and more apparent as time has gone on.

While it’s mostly spot-filling, the 49ers don’t have a lot of avenues to do so in this draft. That can make life more difficult than it has to be for GM John Lynch, barring some ambitious trades in a 2022 NFL Draft that is sure to be busy with a flurry of trade movement.

Here’s a look at the 49ers’ picks in the 2022 NFL Draft:

49ers NFL draft needs

  • Defensive End: Even with Nick Bosa, the 49ers need depth in their pass rushing rotation. They’ve proven competent at drafting pass rushers in the past, and with Arden Key signing with Jacksonville in the offseason, the 49ers don’t have the options they prefer to have. Getting more talent and regrouping is important heading into next year, particularly in an NFC that has some prime quarterback talent the Niners will have to run through.
  • Cornerback: Emmanuel Moseley and Ambry Thomas provide a decent tandem on the outside, but the 49ers desperately need help at the back end of the secondary rotation. In a league where you need at least three strong corners, it is one of the 49ers’ most pressing needs this offseason. Even with the signing of Charvarius Ward, depth will be important against 13-heavy teams like the Rams.
