The San Francisco 49ers jumped into the top spot (for now) in next year's draft. The team would own the No. 1 overall pick if the season ended right now.

Of course, things could change based on the remaining results of the season, which is only in Week 11.

The 49ers were off this week but moved up a spot thanks to the Oakland Raiders beating the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. All three teams now own 2-8 records. San Francisco has the weakest strength of schedule (.485) of the three while the Raiders (.495) would own the No. 2 pick and the Cardinals (.515) sit at No. 3.

Update: The 49ers' strength of schedule as of the end of Sunday night's game between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears lowered to .480. The strength of schedules for the Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals saw no change. We'll have the complete updated draft order for you following Monday night's game.

The NFL uses strength of schedule and not head-to-head and a tiebreaker for teams with matching records. That's why the Raiders, and not the Cardinals, currently sit at No. 2, and why the 49ers are above Oakland.

The 49ers return to practice on Monday as the team prepares for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on November 25.
