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.

Nov 30

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 13 contest against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Christian McCaffrey didn't practice. The running back worked through some knee irritation on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't sure if the situation would keep McCaffrey from playing this weekend. "It's keeping him from [practicing] today, so I hope not," Shanahan told reporters. Defensive end Charles Omenihu is also dealing with a knee issue and did not practice. Another defensive lineman, Arik Armstead, was a limited participant. Armstead has not played since Week 4 and returned to the practice field last Friday. He did not play against the Saints,

49ers will discuss Baker Mayfield but Kyle Shanahan is comfortable with current situation

By David Bonilla
Dec 5

There has been a lot of media speculation that the San Francisco 49ers might be interested in quarterback Baker Mayfield after losing Jimmy Garoppolo for the remainder of the season to a broken foot. The Carolina Panthers released Mayfield, who enters the waiver wire. San Francisco sits at No. 24 in the waiver wire priority order, so several teams will have a chance to snatch up the quarterback ahead of the Niners, assuming they are even interested. "We look into everything," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters via a conference call when asked about Mayfield on Monday. "But that would surprise me right now, and we've got to discuss it this afternoon and stuff. I've always been a fan of his, but I feel real good about our players." Rookie Brock

Nov 27

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.
