Is it just vacated like Minnesota's NBA picks were, meaning that there would be only 31 first round picks?

That is a good point. Better value for the team at the top of the second round.

i would assume it's simply vacated. It's ok though because they still have the 49ers 1st round pick anyway.

Vacated.

Only 31 first round picks.

Only the Patriots could still come out of this on top. If they make the playoffs they lose a pick in the late part of the 1st round but still keep San Franciscos pick that will be in the middle of the round. if they miss the playoffs they keep both 1st rounders and lose a 2nd and 3rd round pick. Seriously all this means now is they don't have to waste their rookie pool on 2 first round picks.

Its forfeited, which is what happens to a team's pick that is used in the supplementary draft. So like everyone else said, there will be 31 picks in the first round, and in all of the draft recaps on websites and other outlets it will say "Forfeited pick," or something along those lines, in the Pats slot.

I'm pretty sure they get to keep, but if Goodell really wanted to make them pay he should have just banned them from picking in the first round no matter what. hah.

Why? They traded past picks for it, not future picks. San Fran lost all their rights to that pick when they received the Pats 1st round pick last year to pick Joe Staley. They shouldn't have it taken away, since they used their previous picks to get it. To take BOTH away would be too severe. If they did take multiple 1st's, it would be one '08 and one '09. But to me, thats still too harsh.

This is almost like the Browns winning the super bowl in terms of where their first pick in the next draft will be now that N.England's is poof, gone. :D

this sucks for whoever picks first in the draft because they will now have to pay the first pick of the second round like the last pick of the first which actually is a pretty big difference, because that player will technically be the 32nd player taken.

Definitely worth paying a little bit more for a guy who is essentially a first round pick.

so, will the guy who is picked 32nd demand 1st round money? or is the money difference from 32 to 33 little?

I'd imagine that the TEAM who picks first in the second round will lobby for 33rd overall pick money, while the AGENT of the player picked will lobby for 32nd overall pick money.

I don't see how anyone could legit say that the player taken 32nd overall should get 33rd money. I'm sure the team will try to make that argument, but it's a stupid one and will hold no water. If you're the 32nd player drafted you should get paid like the 32nd player.

Think about this scenario for a minute. What happens if the 49ers somehow finish with the worst record in the league and New England winds up with the #1 pick. How pissed do you think the league would be if a scenario like that happened?

Well when it happened in the NBA the guy who would have been the last 1st rounder was not given the guarenteed 3 year 1st round contract so there is precedence to pay him like a 2nd rounder

Well then perhaps the brown will still get a pick that would normally be a 1st rounder (#32)

27 dollars and 18 cents.

Last year Gonzo got 5 years and Alan Branch only got 4. The money probably isn't a big difference, but the pick will get 2nd round years, not first round, or at least should.

DG hit it on the head, being picked after the 1st round means reaching free agency a year sooner.

It also means less guaranteed money.
