49ers Move Back up to Fifth in the 2016 Draft Order

Dec 13, 2015 at 9:48 PM--


After Sunday's 24-10 embarrassment in Cleveland, the San Francisco 49ers dropped to a 4-9 overall record. The loss moved them back up four spots, where they were just two weeks ago, in the projection for the 2016 NFL Draft. Their record is tied with four other teams so it could shift dramatically in the final weeks. They currently sit at the fifth overall spot. Last week, based on record and strength of schedule, the 49ers were penciled in with the ninth 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 top spot, once owned by the Cleveland Browns, now goes to the Tennessee Titans with Cleveland dropping down a spot. The Titans lost the top spot to Cleveland last week.

Monday night's matchup between the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins will have no impact on the 49ers' current spot, as both teams have a better record than San Francisco.

Below is the draft order, based on playoff seeding (21-32), record, and strength of schedule (SOS), for all 32 (31 if your don't count the New England Patriots) first-round spots if the season ended today.

1 Tennessee Titans 3-10 .479

Colts LB Darius Leonard was happy to see 49ers move away from early-game run success

Early in their 30-18 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, the San Francisco 49ers looked like they were poised for a big evening on offense when they gashed the Colts' defense with a strong running attack on the opening drive. But things changed dramatically after that, which came as a pleasant surprise to Colts All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard. The 49ers established the run early, with running back Elijah Mitchell gaining 57 yards on five carries on an eight-play, 78-yard drive that ended with the 49ers taking a 6-0 lead on a 14-yard Mitchell touchdown run. But not long after that, the 49ers all but disappeared on offense until scoring their second touchdown of the game early in the fourth quarter. The 49ers added two more field goals before the end



John Lynch: 49ers learning from draft hits and misses; Aaron Banks, Ambry Thomas will contribute

A lot is riding on the selection of Trey Lance. The future of the San Francisco 49ers — and likely head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch — depends on the rookie quarterback developing into an impact player. The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit



14 rollercoaster observations from the 49ers loss in Arizona

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his starting debut on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. He played well, but as expected, it was a bit of a rollercoaster. There were ups and downs, just as there are when any rookie quarterback makes his first start. Last week, when Lance played the second half against the Seahawks, head coach Kyle Shanahan said there was some 'good' and some 'bad'. After his first start, Lance said the same thing about his performance on Sunday. Some good, some bad. A rollercoaster. The 49ers lost the game by a score of 17-10. The team, as a whole, had an up and down game. Here are my 14 rollercoaster observations from Sunday's game: I remember hearing how Shanahan was excitedly



49ers' Kyle Shanahan reveals what went wrong with George Kittle's injury

George Kittle was not able to practice last week. Despite being listed as "doubtful," there remained hope that the San Francisco 49ers tight end might be able to play this past Sunday in rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first NFL start. "Everything's focused on this Sunday, and George is working his tail off to be there," general manager John Lynch said last week. "If not, it's nice that we do have a bye, and we're hopeful that time can allow him to heal enough to really lick this thing and put it behind us so he can get back in there at practice." Kittle won't return after the bye against the Indianapolis Colts. He won't return for the next game,
