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.

Will the 49ers sign a veteran center? Will they move Deebo Samuel to tight end? And other mailbag questions answered

On Monday, the San Francisco 49ers began padded practices. The contract extension for Deebo Samuel was also announced. It's a fun time of the year, as the team prepares to make another run for a sixth Super Bowl championship. We opened up the 49ers mailbag and had plenty of questions to choose from. Let's respond to a handful: Diana Kayatani: There's talk about Jimmy possibly going to the Seahawks. If and when he leaves, where should he go? Felix Watkins: Where do you think Jimmy is going? The world awaits news on Jimmy Garoppolo. Will he be traded or released? Where will he go? Will he be a starter or a backup? How does he get his hair to look so nice? I wish we already had the answer to those questions. The good

The San Francisco 49ers are trending upwards, even with reports from Santa Clara of quarterback Trey Lance having an up-and-down training camp. Still, the team is talented enough to withstand any growing pains by the second-year player and new full-time starter. Apparently, Dan Hanzus of Around the NFL knows this, and that's why Kyle Shanahan's squad has moved up one spot in NFL.com's most recent power rankings, landing at No. 4. "It's full speed ahead for the Trey Lance era in San Francisco," wrote Hanzus.

"Everything has definitely slowed down": 49ers QB Trey Lance more comfortable in 2nd season

By David Bonilla
Aug 5

KNBR was live at the San Francisco 49ers facility in Santa Clara and had an opportunity to speak with Trey Lance. The second-year quarterback feels more acclimated to the area and the team following a whirlwind 2021 campaign. "I know where all the Chipotles are nearby and everything like that," Lance said jokingly. "For me, I just feel so much more comfortable. I know the guys in the locker room so much better. I'm obviously in a very different position than I was last year, and it's just been a ton of fun." A "very different position" is correct. Last season, Lance served as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup, learning from the veteran quarterback. He has been handed the reins this offseason and will be the team's QB1 come Week 1. Many were underwhelmed by
