While much depends on the Carolina-Saints game, it also hinges on many of the 7-8 teams winning as well. If all the 7-8 teams lost this week, including the Niners and Panthers, and the current opponents' W-L record stayed the same, and the Bears also lost to stay at 6 wins, the Niners would select 11th with their own pick, and would select 14th with the Panthers' pick.
If the scenario above stays the same, EXCEPT the Niners winning
, then the Niners would select 14th with Carolina's pick, and either 16th or 17th overall, depending on whether the 8-7 Steelers win.
In the end, I do project both selections to be somewhere in middle of the first round....unfortunately. In my opinion, this puts us out of the Okung, Williams, Davis Sweepstakes, and into the area where Iupati, Bulaga (if he comes out), and Campbell are in contention.
