2017 NFL Draft order following Week 17

Jan 1, 2017 at 11:34 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers knew their draft position as soon as the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns in overtime. No matter what had resulted from their game with the Seattle Seahawks, they would have the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Of course, we have no idea who will be making that selection nor do we know who that young man's first NFL head coach will be. Both general manager Trent Baalke and head coach Chip Kelly were officially fired on Sunday.

Regardless, we now know the draft order for the top 20 picks. Below that are the playoff teams. Their final draft positioning will be determined by how far they go in the playoffs. The deeper they go, the worse the draft position.

There is also a tie at the number 14 spot between the Indianapolis Colts and the Philadelphia Eagles due to similar records and strength of schedule. A coin flip will determine who will draft at the number 14 and 15 spots.

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 with the spots for playoff teams likely to change by the end of postseason play.

1 Cleveland Browns 1-15 .549
2 San Francisco 49ers 2-14 .504

Power rankings in May don't mean a lot, especially when you throw in figuring out how an unproven crop of rookies will impact a team's future success. "The NFL draft and the Power Rankings don't mix," wrote NFL.com contributor Dan Hanzus. That didn't stop him from trying. Hanzus released his latest power rankings, his first since a post-free-agency version in March, and has the San Francisco 49ers jumping up three spots to No. 9.

Justin Fields of Ohio State spent about a week as the betting favorite to be the No. 3 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, surpassing Mac Jones of Alabama. Jones regained the lead and has held onto it for the past five days. During all of that, Trey Lance of North Dakota State had been in the No. 3 spot. On Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network dropped a bombshell. It was news that had already been rumored, but the story means more when the longtime NFL insider reports it. Rapoport stated that the decision in the 49ers clubhouse has come down to two candidates — Jones and Lance. If accurate, it sounds like Fields may be out. The news has created a shift among betting odds. Jones remains the favorite. He is now following by Lance.

49ers Draft Grades for the 2021 NFL Draft: Part 1

By Adithya Peruvemba

The San Francisco 49ers' 2020 NFL season was arguably the most disappointing season over the last decade purely due to the high expectations the team had set for itself by making the Super Bowl the season prior. The underwhelming season was primarily plagued with injuries in addition to holes on the roster that were neglected in the 2020 offseason. However, the Niners started the 2021 offseason with an underrated free agency period during which they were able to retain most of their free agents, including Trent Williams, Jason Verrett, Kyle Juscyk, Jaquiski Tartt, and more while bringing in key role players in Alex Mack and Samson Ebukam. Even after this successful signing period, the 49ers needed more depth and starters at specific holes at quarterback, offensive line,
