Which picks do the 49ers and Rams own in NFL Draft 2024?

The 49ers and Rams emerged as leaders in compensatory picks in the NFL Draft 2024. Both teams acquired five additional selections due to minority hirings in coaching and executive roles, via YardBarker.

The 49ers stood out by receiving multiple compensatory picks in the third and fourth rounds.
