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.

Believe it or not, Kyle Shanahan found some good from the 49ers' loss to the Dolphins

By David Bonilla
Oct 17, 2020

It may seem like there was nothing good to take away from last weekend's embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but that's not how head coach Kyle Shanahan sees it. "There was so much stuff that we did bad that is fixable," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area this week. "And surprisingly, there was a number of encouraging things. (I know) that would be hard to believe, and I know people don't totally want to hear that." An embarrassing defeat like that is challenging for any fan to overlook. This week has seemingly been about placing blame via social media. The 49ers, however, are moving forward. Shanahan didn't review much of that loss with his team this week. He left that to his assistant coaches. But there were encouraging things upon which the team can

Ugly loss to Dolphins proving to be turning point for 49ers

By Kirk Larrabee
Oct 25, 2020

It was very easy -- and understandable -- for fans to have all sorts of negative thoughts about this year's San Francisco 49ers team following its 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5. After all, the 49ers looked so bad in that game that it wasn't a stretch to wonder if the team might be in for a losing season, even though it finished 13-3 and went to the Super Bowl the year before. But the 49ers themselves weren't thinking that way. And since then, they've been able to make that loss to the Dolphins into a turning point that put their season back on the right track. The 49ers didn't sulk after their loss to the Dolphins, electing instead to keep their heads up and focus on turning things around. The results have spoken for themselves -- a

How the 49ers' offense will overcome the loss of Deebo Samuel

By Jordan Elliott
Oct 27, 2020

On Monday, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan announced that wide receiver Deebo Samuel will likely miss the next two games while he recovers from a hamstring injury that occurred in the 4th quarter of the 49ers victory over the New England Patriots. The loss of Samuel is a devastating blow to a 49er offense that looked like it was beginning to fire on all cylinders after impressive performances in back to back weeks. Finding a way to fill the void left behind by Samuel is imperative as the 49ers face the already daunting task of taking on the Seahawks and Packers in back to back weeks, as both teams sit at 5-1 and at the tops of their respective divisions. Samuel has such a unique skill set that it will be hard for any one player on his own to replicate what Samuel brings to the table, which
