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.

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



49ers' Kyle Shanahan on talented Cowboys: "It's very obvious why they're in this position"

After clinching a playoff berth against a star-studded Los Angeles Rams team in the final minutes of Sunday's thrilling 27-24 game, it seems like the Niners have a stronger opponent ahead of them: the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys had their best season, finishing 12-5 and making the playoffs as the third seed in the NFC with the help of a very talented roster and experienced coaching staff. 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan knows he'll have his hands full in this matchup. "I mean you can see why [the Cowboys] are in this position. I mean just offensively, defensively, special teams; I mean their numbers are you know off the charts on both sides in both phases; they've got very good talent they've got very good schemes." Shanahan has high praise for the always



49ers fan takeover of SoFi Stadium shocked Matthew Stafford's wife

The San Francisco 49ers remain a popular team in the Los Angeles area, but Sunday's crowd at SoFi Stadium for the playoff-impacting game against the Los Angeles Rams was wild. The Rams were the home team, but you couldn't tell. That's because the crowd was dominated by 49ers fans, forcing the Rams to play in a hostile environment on their own turf. It got so bad for the Rams that the crowd noise forced the offense to use a silent count during critical moments in the game. It was too loud to ignore. "It was a tough environment for us to communicate in really the whole second half," Rams quarterback Matthew
