49ers lose 10th straight but don’t move up in draft order

Nov 27, 2016 at 9:34 PM--


The Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers continue to lose, which keeps the two franchises slotted for the top two selections in the 2017 NFL Draft. Nothing has changed for the 49ers, who moved into the number two spot back on October 23.

The 49ers have now lost ten straight games, their longest losing streak in franchise history. They are 1-10 this season while the Browns remain winless at 0-12.

Monday's game between the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles 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 49ers have a very slight edge over the Browns when it comes to strength of schedule (SOS), which would be used as a tiebreaker if the two clubs eventually ended the season with the same record. Of course, that strength of schedule will fluctuate based on the combined records of the two teams' opponents.

The 49ers will next travel to play the Chicago Bears on December 4.

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.

PFF: Trent Williams is the one free agent the 49ers can't afford to lose

By David Bonilla

Trent Williams proved to be a good replacement for retired offensive tackle Joe Staley. In fact, Williams anchoring the offensive line's left side looked like an upgrade, and his addition was a bright spot in an otherwise depressing injury-plagued season for the defending NFC champions. The only problem is that the San Francisco 49ers knew they were getting Williams with just one season left on his contract. Now, they'll need to find a way to ensure the veteran tackle becomes one of the top-paid offensive linemen in the league. Williams is one of nearly 40 Niners who played last season on the final year of their contracts. Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus recently took a look at the 32 NFL teams and
