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

4th Quarter GAME ALERT: With the 17-10 win, the Cardinals will remain undefeated on the season, with the 49ers moving to 2-3 as they approach their bye week. QUARTER ALERT: At the 2-minute warning, the 49ers trail 17-10, as the Cardinals have a 1st & 10 at the 50-yard line, while the 49ers have no timeouts.

John Lynch: 49ers learning from draft hits and misses; Aaron Banks, Ambry Thomas will contribute

A lot is riding on the selection of Trey Lance. The future of the San Francisco 49ers — and likely head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch — depends on the rookie quarterback developing into an impact player. The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit

Kyle Shanahan: Jimmy Garoppolo 'doing a lot better,' 49ers QB could be 'ready to go' for Week 7

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this morning and provided an update on his starting quarterback. No, not rookie Trey Lance. Jimmy Garoppolo. If healthy, Garoppolo is expected to be the Week 7 starter against the Indianapolis Colts. Lance may not even be available for that game. The rookie quarterback suffered a knee sprain during his first start this past weekend. The injury could keep him out for one or two weeks. Garoppolo is attempting to return from the calf injury sustained on October 3. It sounds like the 49ers are optimistic about his recovery. "I mean, he's doing good," Shanahan said on the Murph &
