The Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers continue to lose, which keeps the two franchises slotted for the top two selections in the 2017 NFL Draft. Nothing has changed for the 49ers, who moved into the number two spot back on October 23.

The 49ers have now lost ten straight games, their longest losing streak in franchise history. They are 1-10 this season while the Browns remain winless at 0-12.

Monday's game between the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles will have no impact on the 49ers' current draft position. How high the 49ers will actually select will be determined by the rest of the season and their final record.


Right now, the 49ers have a very slight edge over the Browns when it comes to strength of schedule (SOS), which would be used as a tiebreaker if the two clubs eventually ended the season with the same record. Of course, that strength of schedule will fluctuate based on the combined records of the two teams' opponents.

The 49ers will next travel to play the Chicago Bears on December 4.

Below is the current draft order, based on playoff seeding (21-32), record, and strength of schedule (SOS), for all 32 first-round spots if the season ended today. Of course, the order of playoff teams would eventually be determined by the completed playoff picture.
