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.

Jeremiah doesn't see the 49ers drafting Mac Jones as an 'arrogant' move

By David Bonilla
Apr 22, 2021

Former NFL scout John Middlekauff recently described the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers making Mac Jones of Alabama the No. 3 overall pick as "arrogant." Jones appears to fit the mold of what head coach Kyle Shanahan has sought in the past — a smart and accurate passer who can manage his offense well, à la Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan, and Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard for many fans to look past the possibility of passing on Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State, though. Many among the media feel the two are better long-term prospects, too. Both are seen as more athletic prospects with potentially higher upsides. Not only could they turn out to be great in the pocket, but their athleticism could provide Shanahan with an added dimension



Schefter: Compelling QB options have 49ers going back and forth on draft decision

Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch have the biggest decision of their San Francisco 49ers tenure approaching. On Thursday night, the head coach and general manager duo will select a quarterback of the future with the No. 3 overall pick, a selection for which they traded a haul of draft picks, including first-rounders in 2022 and 2023. If they hit on the pick, it could lead to consistent success for the foreseeable future. If they miss on the pick, though, it could put one or even both of them on the hot seat within the next few years. For most of the time since that March 26 trade, the betting favorite has been Mac Jones of Alabama. Adam Schefter of ESPN believes the Crimson Tide product would have been the selection had the draft taken place a month ago. However, a

After trading back from the No. 43 overall pick, the San Francisco 49ers selected Notre Dame offensive lineman Aaron Banks with the 16th pick (No. 48 overall) in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. San Francisco sent the No. 43 overall pick and a seventh-round pick to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for No. 48 overall and a fourth-round pick (No. 121). SF trades pick No. 43 and a 7th-round pick to Las Vegas for No. 48 and a fourth-round pick (121). https://t.co/P62eVKMEpt— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter)
