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.

49ers, Kyle Juszczyk had 'pleasant' talks about a potential return, await salary-cap clarification

By David Bonilla
Feb 23, 2021

Kyle Juszczyk's course remains set for free agency. The San Francisco 49ers hope to retain their highly-valued fullback. That might be difficult given the upcoming salary-cap constraints due to the pandemic's impact on the 2020 season. The 49ers have several impending free agents they would like to bring back. Juszczyk has been such a fixture within head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense over the past four years that it's difficult to imagine it without him. Juszczyk is already the highest-paid fullback by a significant margin, which isn't likely to change with his next contract. Shanahan may look to rework his offense to be less dependent on a dominant fullback like Juszczyk. However, ideally, Juszczyk would stay put. Josina Anderson, the host of the Undefined



49ers add WR DeVonta Smith in latest PFF mock draft

If the San Francisco 49ers don't make a move for a quarterback in this year's draft, many can envision the team going after a cornerback or adding another defensive end. Several of San Francisco's top cornerbacks are scheduled to become free agents. It's a list that includes Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. The 49ers didn't have their top two pass rushers — Nick Bosa or Dee Ford — for most of last season. Bosa is rehabbing an ACL injury, while the status of Ford's back and neck injuries remains unclear. If Ford isn't healthy by April 1, San Francisco will be on the hook for a significant portion of his 2021 salary — $11.6 million — regardless of whether he is on the roster. Rather than target one of these positions,



Jeremiah has 49ers bolstering O-line in latest mock draft

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah had the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Florida tight end Kyle Pitts in his first mock draft, released last month. In his latest mock draft for NFL.com, the draft analyst has John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan bolstering their offensive line, adding former Northwestern offensive tackle Rashawn Slater. Offensive tackle Trent Williams is scheduled to become a free agent next month and will require a hefty annual salary to stay with San Francisco. He's worth it, though.



Fred Warner blew away the 49ers during his pre-draft visit, says Adam Peters

By David Bonilla
Feb 16, 2021

Linebacker Fred Warner was a pleasant surprise for San Francisco 49ers fans coming out of the 2018 draft. He immediately showed flashes of what he could be during his rookie campaign, leading the defense in tackles not only then but in each of his three NFL seasons. After spending some time with Warner, the 49ers immediately knew that he might be someone special. They were already impressed with his on-field play at BYU. What sealed the deal in their minds was getting to know the person. Once again, there won't be pre-draft visits this year. As was the case last year, all interviews will be conducted virtually over Zoom or FaceTime. It's unfortunate because those 30 allotted visits can be a great tool in evaluating an incoming rookie. Of course, given the current
