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
3 Chicago Bears 3-12 .522
4 Jacksonville Jaguars 3-12 .533

49ers Notebook: Brock Purdy's draft surprise, Tariq Castro-Fields on his NFL readiness, and more

By Kirk Larrabee
May 12

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday. Among the players to speak with reporters on Thursday were wide receiver and third-round pick Danny Gray (SMU), offensive lineman and fourth-round pick Spencer Burford (UT-San Antonio), cornerback and sixth-round pick Tariq Castro-Fields (Penn State), quarterback and seventh-round pick Brock Purdy (Iowa State), and undrafted offensive linemen Jason Poe (Mercer) and Dohnovan West (Arizona State). 49ers WebZone already discussed what Gray said



A post-draft glance at the 2022 49ers offense

Since the start of free agency and the NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers have added more talent to their roster to hopefully get the team over the hump in its quest for a sixth championship. With training camp set to open at the end of July, let's take a quick look at how the 49ers will look on offense. Next week's article will focus on the defense and special teams. Quarterback At the start of training camp, the Trey Lance era will officially begin. Since the offseason began, Lance has worked with the other skill position players to hone his timing and offensive rhythm with his pass-catchers. Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the roster, but he is unlikely to get on the practice field as the team works to trade the veteran quarterback. The move will



49ers announce jersey numbers of entire draft class, including No. 74

Last week, we found out what numbers many of the San Francisco 49ers rookies would be wearing during the team's three-day rookie minicamp. Those numbers will be sticking around through at least the rest of the offseason program. Obviously, they are subject to change after roster cuts ahead of Week 1. Matt Barrows of The Athletic tweeted out several rookie jersey numbers, including select undrafted free agents. Missing from his tweet, however, was the number of the 49ers' fifth-round draft pick, cornerback Samuel Womack. The team announced that he will wear No. 26, last worn by cornerback Josh Norman.

Simms doubts 49ers' decision to draft Trey Lance: 'I'm not sold on his potential'

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers' second-year quarterback, Trey Lance, has been the target of much scrutiny this offseason. A lot of it seems based on the team's decision to hold onto veteran Jimmy Garoppolo without fully considering why. Garoppolo remains on the 49ers roster because no one has made a trade offer, not necessarily because the coaches doubt Lance's readiness. Of course, that could be speculation too. However, it's based on the narrative the 49ers have laid out and not the narrative created by the national media. Speaking of national media, Chris Simms of NBC Sports created some chatter after ranking Lance at No. 31 in his top 40 quarterback ranking. His
