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.

The San Francisco 49ers may have one of the more entertaining long snappers in the NFL. Anyone following Taybor Pepper on Twitter (@TayborSnapping) knows that. The 49ers signed the specialist to a two-year extension earlier this month, and he is excited to remain in the Bay Area. Pepper joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday morning and shared why the new contract means so much. "I was super excited to get re-signed by the 49ers because in the four or five years that I've been trying to make it in this league, my number one thing, I wanted a team to put their trust in me," Pepper explained on The Morning Roast. "And the 49ers extending that contract ... is really all I've been fighting for." Pepper had never spent more than one year with a team



49ers projected to land two offensive stars in Draft Network seven-round mock

Mock drafts are a dime a dozen this time of year, and most of them wind up projecting something unexciting that has already been projected several times before. But every once in a while, a mock draft comes along that is interesting enough to single out and discuss on its own, like this one from Ryan Fowler of The Draft Network. Fowler put together a complete seven-round mock for the 49ers using The Draft Network's endlessly entertaining Mock Draft Machine and came up with an intriguing list of players that includes two of college football's biggest offensive stars over the past two seasons. The first is quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State, whom Fowler has going to the 49ers in Round 1. The second



49ers select TE Kyle Pitts, CB Tyson Campbell in latest PFF mock draft

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus calls former Florida tight end Kyle Pitts a "generational" prospect leading up to the reveal of the analytics site's latest mock draft — a two-round affair. He notes that his selections don't necessarily predict what he believes NFL teams will do in the upcoming draft, but what he would do if he were making each of the selections for each organization. Treash has Pitts lasting until the No. 12 overall pick, where the San Francisco 49ers are slated to make their first selection, and sees the tight end as a good addition to Kyle Shanahan's



49ers bolster O-line in latest mock draft from The Athletic

The Athletic's NFL writers conducted a first-round mock draft, with Matt Barrows selecting for the San Francisco 49ers. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan own the No. 12 overall pick, and could go in several directions. Some wonder if the team might even make a move to add a rookie quarterback. This mock draft, like many others, has the top four quarterback prospects long gone before the 49ers' first selection. Not that Barrows would have gone in that direction anyway. Cornerback Patrick Surtain II of Alabama heads to the Dallas Cowboys at No. 10. The New York Giants select tight end Kyle Pitts of Florida at
