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.

49ers' Brutal Schedule: Breaking Down the Unfair Rest Disparity Controversy

By Chris Wilson
May 24

The NFL, unsure whether rest or preparation impacts performance, gives the 49ers the most "unfair" back-to-back schedules ever. Simply stated, the National Football League has come under increased scrutiny in recent years. The latest fire in line to be extinguished surrounds the NFL's scheduling process, with many arguing that the league's ever-changing methodology does not produce the fairest outcomes for all teams. To make their case, critics need to look no further than the 2024 San Francisco 49ers, who find themselves on the wrong end of the most lopsided schedule in modern NFL history. The 49ers play eight games this season at a rest disadvantage compared to their respective opponent. The negative rest disparity across these eight games totals 32 days

49ers unfazed by Brandon Aiyuk's absence; Brock Purdy opens up about draft day jitters

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) this week, and star wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was the most noticeable absentee. However, his absence wasn't unexpected. Aiyuk and the 49ers reportedly remain far apart in their contract extension negotiations, and this portion of the offseason remains voluntary. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked how he feels about Aiyuk not being around for OTAs. "The same as I do about all these guys that aren't here," Shanahan responded. "I mean, I wish they were here, but it's something that's part of the business. Anytime it's part the business part, you try to respect it, stay out of it as much as possible, and look

Can Isaac Guerendo end this 49ers draft trend at running back?

By David Bonilla
May 23

ESPN's Bill Barnwell has expressed concerns about the San Francisco 49ers' draft history under head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. While the duo has brought in key contributors like Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Fred Warner, and Nick Bosa, they have also had their share of draft misses, which is cause for concern. These missteps haven't cost the 49ers too much, though. The team has still participated regularly in NFC Championship Games and is coming off a Super Bowl appearance, the second of Shanahan and Lynch's tenure. Still, the team has yet to get over the hump and bring home that elusive sixth championship for the franchise. Some critical draft misses may have contributed to the team failing to reach its aspirations, the
