The San Francisco 49ers have 10 picks in the NFL Draft, including No. 2 in the first round April 27 in Philadelphia.
They will be helped by having the second pick in the draft and they will also select second in the second and third rounds to give them, barring trades, three of the first 66 players.
After the Kirk Cousins rumors died down, the 49ers added quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley from the Bears, so they appear to be at the top of the depth chart in 2017 with another quarterback arriving after the first round.
Overall, free agency brought a lot of competition, which is what Shanahan will need to recover from the depths of last season's 2-14 record.
Here is a look at the 49ers' five-year draft record with roster tallies reflecting totals as of the end of the 2016 season. Below that are key personnel moves made this year and the team's current needs heading into this draft and our projection for all their 2017 picks.

Top three draft needs
1. Quarterback: Is Brian Hoyer the answer? At best, he would seem like a long-term backup for a star of the future. The question now is: Has Kyle Shanahan identified one atop this year's draft, or might the 49ers explore other needs and put the future of the quarterback position on the back burner for another day?
2. Safety: Sending Antoine Bethea, one of the team's most dependable defensive players, on his way has created yet another position to be filled. The 49ers have not addressed the issue in free agency, an indication they could be looking to draft a safety with their first pick.
3. Wide receiver: They've added a solid No. 2 (Pierre Garcon), retained a proven No. 3 (Jeremy Kerley) and imported some speed for stretch-the-field alignments (Marquise Goodwin and Aldrick Robinson). But the 49ers could still use a game-breaker along the lines of Kyle Shanahan's previous team -- the Atlanta Falcons' Julio Jones.
