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.

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday. Among the players to speak with reporters on Thursday were wide receiver and third-round pick Danny Gray (SMU), offensive lineman and fourth-round pick Spencer Burford (UT-San Antonio), cornerback and sixth-round pick Tariq Castro-Fields (Penn State), quarterback and seventh-round pick Brock Purdy (Iowa State), and undrafted offensive linemen Jason Poe (Mercer) and Dohnovan West (Arizona State). 49ers WebZone already discussed what Gray said

Since the start of free agency and the NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers have added more talent to their roster to hopefully get the team over the hump in its quest for a sixth championship. With training camp set to open at the end of July, let's take a quick look at how the 49ers will look on offense. Next week's article will focus on the defense and special teams. Quarterback At the start of training camp, the Trey Lance era will officially begin. Since the offseason began, Lance has worked with the other skill position players to hone his timing and offensive rhythm with his pass-catchers. Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the roster, but he is unlikely to get on the practice field as the team works to trade the veteran quarterback. The move will



49ers announce jersey numbers of entire draft class, including No. 74

Last week, we found out what numbers many of the San Francisco 49ers rookies would be wearing during the team's three-day rookie minicamp. Those numbers will be sticking around through at least the rest of the offseason program. Obviously, they are subject to change after roster cuts ahead of Week 1. Matt Barrows of The Athletic tweeted out several rookie jersey numbers, including select undrafted free agents. Missing from his tweet, however, was the number of the 49ers' fifth-round draft pick, cornerback Samuel Womack. The team announced that he will wear No. 26, last worn by cornerback Josh Norman.

Are the 49ers really underwhelmed by QB Trey Lance?

By Rohan Chakravarthi

Earlier this week, reports surfaced from FanSided reporter Matt Lombardo that the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by young quarterback Trey Lance as he approaches his second season in the NFL. Lombardo further clarified that his tweet was based upon a conversation with an executive who's "pretty tight" with the 49ers, as well as members of the coaching staff last season. Unfortunately, based on the words of multiple players on the team, as well as the coaching staff and front office, that unsubstantiated claim couldn't be further from the truth. Here's a month-by-month breakdown of the comments surrounding Lance following the season, beginning with San Francisco's post-season press conferences in early
