49ers Remain at No. 2 Spot in Draft Order but SOS Climbs

Nov 20, 2016 at 9:01 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers' losing streak continues and so does the Cleveland Browns'. The Browns are still sitting comfortably at the number one spot in the projected draft order having not won a game yet this season. The 49ers, who have now lost nine straight thanks to a 30-17 defeat to the New England Patriots, remain in the number two spot.

Monday's game between the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders 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 Browns have a slight edge over the 49ers when it comes to strength of schedule (SOS) so even if Cleveland eventually wins a game, it will not necessarily mean that the 49ers would jump into the top spot anymore. This is a new development over last week when Cleveland's SOS was higher than San Francisco's. The 49ers' SOS jumped this week.

The 49ers will next travel to play the Miami Dolphins on November 27.

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.

Kyle Shanahan says COVID-19 is unavoidable, but 49ers can lessen its impact

San Francisco 49ers players and staff walk by one another with masks over their faces and monitors around their necks, tracking if they come within six feet of each other. They add time to the start of the day, accounting for the process of just getting in the door. "Your morning takes longer to come in," quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo told reporters this past week. "You've got to go through all the testing, answer the survey, and all that. There's a lot of little pieces that go into it, but it's like anything; it's part of your routine now. "It's just kind of getting used to it, and you adapt to it. But, I think the biggest difference is just the

Seahawks Desperation No Threat to 49ers

It's been 7 years since the Seattle Seahawks won their first Super Bowl title. It's been 6 years since Russell Wilson completely blew the Seahawks' chance to win their 2nd Super Bowl title. Yes, Seattle has been a playoff contender for nearly every season since, but it's hard not to acknowledge that the 49ers' neighbors to the north have underachieved since the last time the two teams met in the playoffs. Seattle once brandished the most dominant defense in the NFL with a peak Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Michael Bennet, Cliff Avril, KJ Wright and Bobby Wangner. Listing those names gives you a sense of just how formidable and dangerous that unit was. On the other side of the ball, Pete Carroll had a young Russell Wilson at quarterback to create magic with RB

5 X-Factors for the 49ers in 2020

By Gilbert Brink

Imagine this, the San Francisco 49ers have won Super Bowl 54. Jimmy Garopppolo is the new NFL golden boy, Andy Reid is still notoriously snake bitten by the football gods and the 49ers are tied with the Patriots and Steelers for most Super Bowl wins ever. This easily could have been the case if a a few things broke the 49ers' way in Super Bowl 54. In 2020, the 49ers have carried over the vast majority of their roster from 2019. Only 3 starters from that Super Bowl team are not present on the roster in 2020: LT Joe Staley, DT DeForest Buckner and WR Emmanuel Sanders. The big names to replace those 3 players have been well-touted. Veteran star LT Trent Williams will fill the gap left by Staley while 2 first-round draft picks, DT Javon Kinlaw and WR Brandon Aiyuk, will be tasked
