After MNF, 49ers Stay Put at Sixth in 2016 Draft Order

Dec 21, 2015 at 9:48 PM--


Luckily for the San Francisco 49ers, the Detroit Lions won their Monday night matchup against the New Orleans Saints, making certain that the 49ers would not drop further in their projected 2016 draft position. Last week, the 49ers were penciled in with the fifth overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. Despite a 24-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, they dropped down a spot to sixth overall based on current record and strength of schedule (SOS) if the season ended today. There was a possibility that the team could have fallen further had the Detroit Lions, who coincidentally happen to be the 49ers' next opponent, lost on Monday. They did not.

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

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.

1 Tennessee Titans 3-11 .490

The San Francisco 49ers are facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship on Sunday, with the winner facing off against either the Cincinnati Bengals or the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This is a stage familiar for the 49ers, as they've made the NFC Championship Game in three of the past four seasons now, losing to the Los Angeles Rams last season, while going to the Super Bowl in 2019 after a win over the Green Bay Packers. However, despite seeing consistent success, the 49ers haven't accomplished their No. 1 goal: winning a Super Bowl, which has left a chip on their shoulder as they strive to hit that goal this season. When asked about the topic, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk agreed with the sentiment about having a chip
