49ers Remain at No. 2 Spot in Draft Order Following 12th Straight Loss

Dec 11, 2016 at 8:38 PM--


The Cleveland Browns probably aren't going to win a game going forward this season and the San Francisco 49ers probably aren't going to either. The Browns remain winless while the 49ers have dropped 12 straight on their way to a 1-12 record.

Their latest embarrassment involved blowing a 14-point lead and losing to the second backup quarterback in as many weeks. The New York Jets fought back and took the game into overtime where they won 23-17.

As far as the 2017 NFL Draft goes, that leaves the 49ers exactly where they were entering Week 14 – in the number two spot.

Of course, a victory wouldn't have necessarily been a bad thing. The would have been further away from the top pick – you know, in case the Browns actually pull off a win at some point – but they wouldn't have been in any worse situation. The 49ers, like the Jacksonville Jaguars, would have both been 2-11, but San Francisco owns the tiebreaker with a weaker strength of schedule. So they would have remained at the number two spot.

The 49ers have the Atlanta Falcons, Los Angeles Rams, and Seattle Seahawks remaining on their schedule. The Browns have the Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers, and Pittsburgh Steelers remaining on theirs.

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 and Super Bowl winner.

The table below is following the New York Giants win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night but before the Monday night game between the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens.

Kyle Shanahan on if Jimmy Garoppolo will remain the 49ers' starting QB: 'I would guess so'

By Kirk Larrabee
Oct 24

It doesn't sound like there will be any rush to make a change at quarterback for the 49ers after their rain-soaked 30-18 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday night, although 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't sound overly definitive about the future of the position either. Jimmy Garoppolo was given the starting nod at quarterback for the 49ers against the Colts, two weeks after he missed a start due to a calf injury. Garoppolo's performance against the Colts wasn't exactly confidence-inspiring, as he finished with 181 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions on 16-of-27 passing along with one lost fumble. But with rookie Trey Lance continuing to nurse the knee injury he sustained when he stepped in for Garoppolo in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5,

The weather was ugly as the San Francisco 49ers hosted the Indianapolis Colts at Levi's Stadium Sunday night, with consistent sheets of rain accompanied by strong winds. The 49ers somehow managed to look even uglier than the weather, putting on a performance filled with costly errors in a 30-18 loss to the Colts. The 49ers jumped out to a 12-7 first quarter

13 Observations from the 49ers' monsoon loss

By Marc Adams
Oct 25

What an ugly night. And the weather was bad, too! It was wet, it was windy, and the San Francisco 49ers reached a new low, losing 30-18 to a Colts team they really should have beaten. There were a monsoon of mistakes, on both sides of the ball, to accompany some questionable play-calling. The 49ers, who have an intimate relationship with self-inflicted wounds, were 1-11 on 3rd down, and committed four turnovers, to go along with seven penalties for 122 yards. The weather didn't make it any easier, but I'm not sure it would have turned out any different on a sunny day. Here are my 13 observations from the 49ers monsoon: Elijah Mitchell had a great game. He should have been used more. The rookie had almost 100 yards rushing in the first half.
