49ers lose 2025 pick, docked fourth-round position for payroll issues

John Lynch

Payroll errors in 2022 caused the NFL to dock the San Francisco 49ers a 2025 fifth-round pick and forfeit a better position in the fourth round in the 2024 draft for an accounting mistake that impacted salary-cap projections.

“This action resulted from a league review that found administrative payroll accounting errors at the close of the 2022 league year that resulted in a misreporting of the club’s cumulative player compensation. The NFL determined that the club would have remained under the salary cap at all times regardless of the error and there was no intent to circumvent the cap,” the league said in a statement.

The NFL moved the 49ers’ fourth-round pick, No. 131, to the bottom of the round, behind the compensatory selections to No. 135.

“We take responsibility and accept the imposed discipline from the NFL due to a clerical payroll error. At no time did we mislead or otherwise deceive the League or gain a competitive advantage in connection with the payroll mistake,” the 49ers said in a statement Monday.
