Top of the Draft Order Unchanged after 49ers and Browns Lose Again

Dec 18, 2016 at 8:31 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers received no help from the Cleveland Browns today. The Browns remained winless and fell to 0-14 – the worst record in the NFL.

The 49ers have now lost 13 straight games and still do not move up in the projected draft order for 2017. They remain slotted at the number two spot, where they will remain if both teams lose their remaining two games. Should the Browns win a game and the 49ers continue to lose, then San Francisco would move into the top spot because their strength of schedule is worse than Cleveland's.

The 49ers will travel to Los Angeles to play the Rams on Christmas Eve and then host the Seattle Seahawks on New Year's Day.

The Browns will host the San Diego Chargers on Christmas Eve and then travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers during their finale on New Year's Day.

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.

Bryan DeArdo of CBS Sports decided to look back at the 1980s and identify his top-five rivalries of that decade.

Sitting at No. 5 was the rivalry between the 49ers and the Minnesota Vikings. DeArdo lists the best game of the decade between the two teams as the October 30, 1988 matchup that saw the 49ers beat the Vikings 24-21. San Francisco owned a 5-3 regular-season record against Minnesota during the 80s, winning during

Max Kellerman explains how Jimmy Garoppolo can become a top-10 quarterback

By David Bonilla
Jul 2, 2020

Stephen A. Smith has been very critical of those who are quick to praise San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. That's not to say that the ESPN personality feels Garoppolo is a bad quarterback. He's repeatedly stated that isn't the case. The First Take host, however, doesn't believe Garoppolo belongs in the discussion of the league's best quarterbacks. "That defense, that running game, Travis Kelce (Note: he meant George Kittle), and Kyle Shanahan are people you think about before Jimmy G ever enters your head," Smith said on Thursday, "and you're the quarterback for the team. Stop it. I mean, please. Is he ready to be a star? He's ready to look like a star because he's got stars around him." One 49ers player, wide receiver Deebo Samuel,
