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.

The San Francisco 49ers surprised reporters by bringing in tight end George Kittle to speak via Zoom on Thursday. Fans shouldn't take Kittle's availability to the media as a clue that he will play on Sunday against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium, though.

Kyle Shanahan didn't sound too concerned about Jordan Reed's injury after the San Francisco 49ers' 36-9 victory over the New York Giants. He was optimistic that his tight end didn't suffer any long-term damage, noting that the 49ers would learn more tomorrow. Reed appeared to roll his ankle during the first quarter but returned in the second. The 49ers later ruled the tight end out after the television broadcast showed the team's medical staff examining Reed's left knee and leg. Shanahan said Reed indeed sustained ankle and knee injuries. Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley was ruled out with a concussion after a collision in the second quarter with safety Jaquiski Tartt as the two defenders attempted to tackle Giants quarterback Daniel

The Arizona Cardinals went into Levi's Stadium on Sunday and upset the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers 24-20. It was not the start Richard Sherman and his team wanted for what they hoped would be a bounce-back season in response to February's Super Bowl defeat. Sherman was asked after the game what the 49ers can take away from the loss, and what it might mean for the team moving forward. "It just comes down to executing down the stretch," Sherman responded. "Any time you get to play, we got to knock the rust off some things, some communication things we have to do better, but I think overall, we feel good about where we are. "They played a good game. They made some plays at the end. [Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray] made some plays with
