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.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says Trey Sermon is improving but 'there is a pecking order'

Trey Sermon was a third-round pick in April's draft. However, the San Francisco 49ers' sixth-round pick, Elijah Mitchell, is the team's starting running back and leading rusher. Sermon had 10 carries during Sunday's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Before that, his last carry came in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. Sermon moved up the depth chart because Mitchell was inactive due to rib and finger injuries. Kyle Shanahan insists that Sermon is showing improvement. On Monday, one day after the team's Week 11 win, the 49ers coach spoke with reporters and discussed the developing rookie running back. "I think he's better now than when he was given the last opportunity," Shanahan said of Sermon. "I know I get these questions about Trey

Watch out NFL: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers' Nick Bosa is 'getting better each week'

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa racked up nine sacks during his NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign in 2019. He has already surpassed that mark through 10 games this season. Bosa's 10 sacks are tied for the fifth-most in the NFL. Imagine the number he could have amassed if he wasn't being held so often by blockers doing whatever they can to prevent the dominating defender from getting to their quarterbacks. On Sunday, you saw it with Jacksonville's Jawaan Taylor holding onto Bosa, who still managed to reach rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. "The reason why [he's being held so often] is he's so good and so fast at taking that inside move,"

SACK ALERT: Nick Bosa notches his 11th sack of the season, quickly evading left tackle Christian Darrisaw and getting to Kirk Cousins for San Francisco's first sack of the
