49ers maintain No. 2 spot in draft order following 11th straight loss

Dec 4, 2016 at 9:43 PM--


The good news from the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday – their 11th straight – is that the team maintains its projected draft spot. The 49ers remain at the number two selection in the 2017 NFL Draft order. Had they lost in Chicago, the 49ers would have fallen to the number three spot and the Bears would have taken over the number two spot. Thanks to the Chicago victory, the Bears do not budge from last weekend's number four placement.

It's starting to look very likely that the 49ers' lone Week 1 victory might be their only win of the season. That means that the winless Cleveland Browns, who enjoyed their bye this week, would need to finally win a game this season for the 49ers to take over that top spot.

The Browns still have to play the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers, and Pittsburgh Steelers. The 49ers still have the New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, Los Angeles Rams, and Seattle Seahawks on their schedule.

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.

Monday night's game between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets has not yet been factored into the table below.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett always believed he would return to form. For the rest of us, it was a delightful surprise. After all, before this past season, five of his six NFL seasons ended on injured reserve. His one other healthy season came in 2015, which earned him a Pro Bowl nod. Washington quarterback Alex Smith will be this season's AP Comeback Player of the Year. There is no doubt about that. During any other season, Verrett may have had a chance to earn the honor. In his second season with San Francisco, Verrett started all 13 games in which he appeared, accumulating 60 tackles, two tackles for a loss, two interceptions, seven passes defensed, and was Pro Football Focus' eighth-highest graded cornerback.
