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

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.
