With Chiefs’ 8th straight win, 49ers improve their 2014 NFL Draft selection

Oct 27, 2013 at 1:32 PM--




With the Kansas City Chiefs' 23-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns, they improved their record to 8-0 and remain the only undefeated team in the NFL. By reaching their 8th victory of the season, the San Francisco 49ers gain a better draft selection.

In April, the 49ers traded quarterback Alex Smith to the Chiefs for two draft picks. The first was a second-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, which the 49ers used to select defensive tackle Tank Carradine. The second was a conditional selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. If the Chiefs won less than 8 games in 2013, that selection would have been a third-round pick. Because they have now won 8 or more games, that third-round selection becomes a second round pick in 2014.

Kyle Shanahan hoping 49ers' COVID-19 vaccination numbers improve

The state of California lifted several of its COVID-19-related restrictions today. Masks are no longer required if you are vaccinated. The capacity limitations are gone, as are county tier updates, which provided information on exposure levels. Of course, businesses are still allowed to set their own guidelines. However, for the most part, the state is on a path back to normalcy. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has stated that he expects stadiums to be filled with fans during the upcoming season. As of last week, assistant coaches from at least four NFL teams refused to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Should that stand, it means they will lose their Tier 1 access, banning them from the



Kyle Shanahan talks passing on Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson in the 2017 NFL draft

Last week, Kyle Shanahan was a guest on "The TK Show" with The Athletic's Tim Kawakami. He got the chance to discuss the San Francisco 49ers' offseason program, his thoughts on rookie Trey Lance, new defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, and most intriguingly, passing on star quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson in the 2017 NFL Draft. "Anybody who had a chance to take Patrick Mahomes or Deshaun who didn't, I mean, everyone wishes we had a time machine," Shanahan said. "Before I came here, I had a very good idea that we would be able to get a free-agent quarterback the next year, one that I knew we could win with. So you're looking at these rookies … and no one at that time was considering those guys top-five picks, top-ten picks." When talking



Window is open for Trey Lance to win 49ers QB job, but it won't be easy, says Shanahan

Trey Lance won't be automatically relegated to a backup role at quarterback this season just because he's a rookie, but he'll have his work cut out for him if he wants to prove he should be the starter over Jimmy Garoppolo. The widespread assumption is that the veteran Garoppolo will start for the 49ers this season while the first-round pick Lance learns from the sidelines. But 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan won't be approaching the situation from that perspective once training camp gets underway in late July, at least not initially. Shanahan spoke about that and a number of other topics during a conversation with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on the most recent episode of Kawakami's TK Show



Can 49ers Trey Lance Be The First Rookie To Win A Super Bowl As Starting Quarterback?

As hard as it is to believe, no rookie has ever won the Super Bowl as a starting quarterback. You would think that after 55 years of Super Bowls, at least one rookie quarterback would have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy following his team's victory. But it has not happened. In fact, no rookie quarterback has even led his team to the game. None. In 55 years! A few have come close. Only three have led their teams as far as the conference championship game. In 2004, Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC Championship Game. Mark Sanchez took the New York Jets to the AFC Championship
