2017 NFL Draft order following Week 16

Dec 27, 2016 at 7:53 AM--


For those rooting for the San Francisco 49ers to leap into position to obtain the top pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, you will have to wait until Week 17. The Cleveland Browns did their part, beating the San Diego Chargers and winning their first game of the season over the weekend. The 49ers could have jumped into the top spot with a loss to the Los Angeles Rams, but that did not happen.

Instead, the 49ers broke their 13-game losing streak and beat the Rams for the second time this season, bumping their record up to 2-13. The win assures that the 2016 squad will not break the franchise record for the least wins in a season.

Now, the 49ers will finish their season on New Year's Eve by hosting the Seattle Seahawks, who lost over the weekend. Obtaining the first pick is still a possibility, but the 49ers would have to lose to the Seahawks and rely on the Browns beating the Pittsburgh Steelers. The latter might be a tall order.

Two sets of teams are tied when it comes to record and SOS. Their draft positions would need to be determined by a coin flip. They are the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts at 7-8 and then the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Baltimore Ravens at 8-7.

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 the bottom 12 teams will eventually be determined by the playoff results and Super Bowl winner.

Team W-L SOS
1 Cleveland Browns 1-14 .540
2 San Francisco 49ers 2-13 .496

McShay: Mac Jones won't start over Jimmy Garoppolo Week 1 if 49ers draft him

By David Bonilla

The argument for Mac Jones over some other quarterback prospects at No. 3 overall is that the former Alabama player might be among the most ready to step in and play. Some feel that Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State could benefit from sitting and learning for a year. Much of that has to do with the system within which Jones played last year. Fields and Lance are viewed as having higher ceilings than Jones, though. They may be better long-term prospects. ESPN's Todd McShay released his latest mock draft and has the San Francisco 49ers selecting Jones with their top pick. That



Former NFL QB explains why criticisms of Justin Fields, potential 49ers draft pick, are 'bogus'

No one is questioning Justin Fields' athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback's ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields' ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating. Maybe all of his skeptics, who want to find ways to bring the quarterback down, are wrong. "For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting

PFF identifies Clemson RB Travis Etienne as a forward-thinking draft fit for 49ers

By David Bonilla

Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus went through all 32 NFL teams and tried to look one or two years in the future to project areas of need for each. Maybe a certain position group is considered among the team's strengths now, but will that be the case down the road? He then tried to find a good draft prospect—at a good value—to fill that potential need. "The respective prospect pairings for those teams all stand out as good value for where they would be selected," wrote Linsey, "and their selection would serve as a preventative measure to maintain strength at that position for years to come." For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the running
