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.

Jimmy Garoppolo says 49ers played best game against Cardinals but still have 'a long way to go'

By Kirk Larrabee
Nov 21

As good as the San Francisco 49ers played against the Arizona Cardinals Monday night, there's still room for them to get better, according to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard to find much fault with how the 49ers played in their 38-10 shellacking of the Cardinals at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. After fighting off a somewhat slow start, the 49ers rolled over the Cardinals on offense while the defense held them scoreless in the second half, marking the third consecutive week they've reached that feat against an opponent. It was a performance many had been waiting for from the 49ers after an inconsistent start to the season, and Garoppolo had one of his best outings of the year along the way, throwing for 228 yards and four touchdowns on 20-of-29 passing. But even though



49ers Notebook: Shanahan happy with backup RBs in Mitchell's absence; 49ers overcome unusual week; Saints' impressive streak snapped

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more. Let's get it started... (See also:



John Lynch views George Kittle's catch vs. Chargers as turning point for 49ers

By David Bonilla
Nov 18

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had just one catch for 21 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. It was an impressive effort, though. One person inside the organization even believes it may have been the play that turned everything around in the game for the Niners. The team didn't seem to be clicking for much of the first half. Kittle made the catch and then refused to go down 😤 @gkittle46📺: #LACvsSF on



Why play-calling shouldn't be blamed for 49ers' offensive woes

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Nov 18

The 49ers don't have a playcalling issue. They have an execution issue. Week after week, I've evaluated the 49ers' offensive film to understand where the problems stem from, and it's the same answer every week: execution. In Week 10, the 49ers scored just 22 points, as they converted only two of their five red zone drives into touchdowns, while leaving other points on the board elsewhere. First Red Zone drive On 1st & Goal at the LAC 9, Jimmy Garoppolo threw an incompletion out of the endzone to a well-covered Deebo Samuel. This
