49ers Move down Four Spots in 2016 Draft Order

Dec 7, 2015 at 11:11 PM--


After Sunday's 26-20 overtime win in Chicago, the San Francisco 49ers improved to a 4-8 overall record. The win moved them down four spots in the projection for the 2016 NFL Draft. Although, their record is tied with six other teams so it could shift dramatically in the coming weeks. A loss would have moved them into the top four selections. They currently sit at the ninth overall spot. Last week, based on record and strength of schedule, the 49ers were penciled in with the fifth overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.


How high the team will actually select will be determined by the rest of the season and their final record. The Cleveland Browns, the 49ers' opponent on Sunday, take over the top spot from the Tennessee Titans.

Below is the 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.

Dan Orlovsky breaks down why the 49ers are the worst matchup for the Packers

For a week, Dallas Cowboys fans had to endure the media telling them that the San Francisco 49ers were a bad matchup for the self-appointed America's Team. That ended up being true. On Sunday, the 49ers went into AT&T Stadium and knocked the NFC East champions out of the playoffs. Now, it's Green Bay Packers fans' turn to hear about a bad upcoming matchup. The Packers will host the 49ers at Lambeau Field on Saturday night, and ESPN's Dan Orlovsky broke down why this is a poor matchup for the home team. "It's the worst matchup the Packers could have gotten," Orlovsky said Monday on ESPN's Get Up. "It's a bad seven-day stretch for the Packers, knowing that San Francisco comes back, beats the [Rams], then they go on the road [to beat the Cowboys]. And



49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to
