49ers Currently at the Sixth Spot in 2016 Draft Order

Nov 23, 2015 at 10:49 AM--


It has been a rough ride for new head coach Jim Tomsula and his 2015 San Francisco 49ers. After Sunday's 29-13 loss in Seattle, the team continued to sit at the bottom of the NFC West standings with a 3-7 overall record. The right side of the offensive line has been embarrassing. The quarterback that started the season, Colin Kaepernick, was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list after being benched just weeks earlier in favor of QB Blaine Gabbert. RB Carlos Hyde has missed the team's past three games and his return this season remains uncertain. The defense has underperformed under coordinator Eric Mangini.

With the season lost, there is a bright spot. The 49ers have an opportunity to select relatively high in the 2016 NFL Draft. How high will be determined by the rest of the season. As of right now, the team is looking to have the sixth overall selection. The San Diego Chargers hold the top spot right now and the 49ers still have the Cleveland Browns, who are listed above them, on their remaining schedule.

Below is the draft order for all 32 first-round spots if the season ended today.

This has been updated based on the result from Monday night's New England Patriots win over the Buffalo Bills and now using playoff seeding for the lower spots.

Should 49ers fans be concerned about Brandon Aiyuk returning punts?

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers pared down their roster this week, making multiple cuts and moves. There were a few surprises, but for the most part, things went as expected. One question that remains, however, is who will be returning punts? Most believe second-year wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk would be the most effective punt returner. He did it in college, and has game-breaking ability. But do you really want one of your star wideouts returning punts, and increasing his chances of being injured? Head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the topic this week. In an interview with

The San Francisco 49ers have signed tight end Tanner Hudson, linebacker Rashad Smith, cornerback Dee Virgin, and wide receiver Isaiah Zuber to the team's practice squad. On Wednesday, general manager John Lynch confirmed that Hudson and Virgin had agreed to sign, but both still needed to travel to Santa Clara and pass physicals. "Jordan Matthews is on our practice squad," Lynch said via a conference call. "We didn't plan on having another tight end being a part of that but had some discussions with Tanner. He's a guy we've had our eye on for a while. I think there was a lot of conjecture that he would make Tampa's 53. When he didn't, we took a shot at it, and we were able to get him to come with us. So, we're excited about that. "And then with Dee
