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.

Fred Warner believes Deebo Samuel 'loves the team' but Pelissero says 49ers, WR remain in 'standoff'

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday.

A post-draft glance at the 2022 49ers offense

Since the start of free agency and the NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers have added more talent to their roster to hopefully get the team over the hump in its quest for a sixth championship. With training camp set to open at the end of July, let's take a quick look at how the 49ers will look on offense. Next week's article will focus on the defense and special teams. Quarterback At the start of training camp, the Trey Lance era will officially begin. Since the offseason began, Lance has worked with the other skill position players to hone his timing and offensive rhythm with his pass-catchers. Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the roster, but he is unlikely to get on the practice field as the team works to trade the veteran quarterback. The move will



49ers announce jersey numbers of entire draft class, including No. 74

By David Bonilla

Last week, we found out what numbers many of the San Francisco 49ers rookies would be wearing during the team's three-day rookie minicamp. Those numbers will be sticking around through at least the rest of the offseason program. Obviously, they are subject to change after roster cuts ahead of Week 1. Matt Barrows of The Athletic tweeted out several rookie jersey numbers, including select undrafted free agents. Missing from his tweet, however, was the number of the 49ers' fifth-round draft pick, cornerback Samuel Womack. The team announced that he will wear No. 26, last worn by cornerback Josh Norman.
