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.

For third-straight year, Jimmy Garoppolo named as 49ers player who will have biggest impact on season

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may have endured a lot of criticism this offseason — you know, if he listened to the outside noise. He doesn't. Garoppolo seems focused on doing what he needs to do to be ready for the 2020 season rather than dwell on February's Super Bowl collapse. "You haven't seen any crazy media lash-outs from him, or him be down on himself, or anything like that," fullback Kyle Juszczyk said in May. "It's just Jim. He comes to work every day, works his butt off, has the same demeanor every day. The outside noise, it truly doesn't seem to affect him." That's good because there is a lot of pressure on Garoppolo. He'll be

San Francisco 49ers rookies, quarterbacks, and injured players will report to the team's facility tomorrow for COVID-19 testing. The rest of the team will arrive next week. After testing, players will self-quarantine and then return a few days later for another round of testing. Should both test results return negative, the players will be cleared to enter the team facility. Santa Clara County was reviewing the 49ers' plans and protocols for conducting training camps safely amidst the pandemic, and today approved those plans, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

49ers had a third-round grade on George Kittle but gambled in 2017 draft, says Adam Peters

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers loved George Kittle as the Iowa tight end entered the 2017 NFL Draft. Did they know he would eventually become one of the best to play the position? Probably not. Did they view him as a fifth-round pick? No. If NFL teams redid that draft, there is no way Kittle would last beyond the first few selections. Back in 2017, San Francisco wasn't even sure he would make it to the fifth round. The team had a higher grade on Kittle but gambled by waiting to select the player who would eventually become one of the most entertaining young stars in the game. "I remember scouting George Kittle at Iowa when I was with the Broncos, at the time," 49ers VP of player personnel Adam Peters
