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 Juszczyk glad JaMycal Hasty turned down other offers to remain with 49ers, praises rookie

By David Bonilla

Typically, accepting an offer from another team when you are sitting on a practice squad would be a no-brainer. After all, being on an active roster means earning a lot more money. San Francisco 49ers running back JaMycal Hasty faced that dilemma but chose to remain with his current team — the one he signed with as an undrafted free agent in April. The decision could not have been easy. There was always the threat that other teams would snatch up the talented rookie running back. While another team can sign any practice squad player from around the NFL to its active roster, the player still has a choice to remain with his current squad. The 49ers coaching staff had to convince Hasty that he was exactly where he needs to be. "People have tried

John Lynch, 49ers confident in Jimmy Garoppolo, but QB will have to prove himself vs. Rams

By David Bonilla

Even sitting with a 2-3 record, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has no shortage of confidence in his team's ability to step onto the football field and beat anyone. That includes Sunday night's opponent, the Los Angeles Rams. To do that, though, the 49ers will need Jimmy Garoppolo to perform a whole lot better than he did this past weekend against the Miami Dolphins. The quarterback was playing on an injured ankle, which impacted his play, but he's practiced all week and is expected to start against the Rams. "The doctors cleared Jimmy (before Sunday's game)," Lynch said Friday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He was ready to go. They felt like he could protect himself." That changed after two quarters of play. Head
