49ers Drop a Spot in 2016 Draft Order, Await MNF Result

Dec 20, 2015 at 10:07 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers lost again on Sunday, this time a 24-14 defeat to the Cincinnati Bengals. They can't seem to catch a break because despite the defeat, the 49ers didn't move up in projected draft position. In fact, the opposite happened. The 49ers currently sit at the sixth overall spot in the 2016 NFL Draft order based on current record and strength of schedule (SOS). Last week, the 49ers were penciled in with the fifth overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.

UPDATE: After MNF, 49ers stay put at sixth in 2016 NFL Draft order

How high the team will actually select will be determined by the rest of the season and their final record. The top spot is still owned by the Tennessee Titans for the second week in a row.

Monday night's matchup between the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints could have an impact on the 49ers' positioning, so fans will have to wait until after that game to see where San Francisco will land after 15 weeks of play. The Detroit Lions currently sit one spot below the 49ers at seven with a strength of schedule very close to the one owned by San Francisco.

If needed, check back following Monday night's game for an update.

The undefeated Carolina Panthers still hold the final overall selection based on playoff seeding. If the season ended today, they would be the number one seed in the NFC and hold the best record in the league.

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.

Kyle Shanahan attempts to explain Arik Armstead's drop in production

By David Bonilla
Nov 19, 2020

Some subscribe to the idea that you shouldn't hand a big payday to a player whose outlier season falls during a contract year. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead's career-best season came last year when he led the San Francisco 49ers with 10 sacks. The production came during his fifth-year option, and the 49ers rewarded the defender this offseason with a five-year, $85 million deal. Armstead had a lot of help along the defensive line last season. He had rookie phenom Nick Bosa and veteran Dee Ford (at times) causing havoc on the edges. He had DeForest Buckner plugging up the middle. It truly was one of the best defensive lines the Niner Faithful had seen in a long while. And
