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

By Jon Opelt
May 15

The NFL just announced its entire 2024 regular season schedule. Here is a week-by-week preview of the San Francisco 49ers opponents and how those teams revamped in the off-season. All times Pacific Week 1—New York Jets Monday, September 9 ABC/ESPN 5:20 PM The Jets have a playoff-caliber defense. The addition of edge rusher Haason Reddick offsets the loss of sack master Bryce Huff. A healthy Aaron Rogers should keep the Jets' offense on the field longer and give the team a legitimate shot at postseason play. Rodgers is a sure-fire, first-ballot Hall of Famer. However, he has not fared well against San Francisco. During his time in Green Bay, he was 6-7 all-time against the Niners, including 0-4 in

The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly signed former USC offensive lineman Jarrett Kingston to his rookie four-year deal. The team made him a sixth-round draft pick, selecting him 215th overall in the 2024 NFL Draft.

According to OverTheCap.com, Kingston's four-year contract is worth about $4.16 million. This includes a signing bonus of approximately $138,000 and a 2024 salary-cap hit of about $830,000. When asked about his pre-draft evaluations, Kingston said, "I feel like I am athletic. I think whatever like the ratings were, but I feel like I'm really athletic.

49ers unfazed by Brandon Aiyuk's absence; Brock Purdy opens up about draft day jitters

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) this week, and star wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was the most noticeable absentee. However, his absence wasn't unexpected. Aiyuk and the 49ers reportedly remain far apart in their contract extension negotiations, and this portion of the offseason remains voluntary. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked how he feels about Aiyuk not being around for OTAs. "The same as I do about all these guys that aren't here," Shanahan responded. "I mean, I wish they were here, but it's something that's part of the business. Anytime it's part the business part, you try to respect it, stay out of it as much as possible, and look

Can Isaac Guerendo end this 49ers draft trend at running back?

By David Bonilla
May 23

ESPN's Bill Barnwell has expressed concerns about the San Francisco 49ers' draft history under head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. While the duo has brought in key contributors like Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Fred Warner, and Nick Bosa, they have also had their share of draft misses, which is cause for concern. These missteps haven't cost the 49ers too much, though. The team has still participated regularly in NFC Championship Games and is coming off a Super Bowl appearance, the second of Shanahan and Lynch's tenure. Still, the team has yet to get over the hump and bring home that elusive sixth championship for the franchise. Some critical draft misses may have contributed to the team failing to reach its aspirations, the
