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.

49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

By Kirk Larrabee

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line. A pass interference call on cornerback Josh Norman two plays



Kocurek excited for return of Nick Bosa, Dee Ford after 49ers pass rushers reached 'lowest of lows'

It has been a rigorous offseason for San Francisco 49ers pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both exited last season early due to injuries. First, a back injury sidelined Ford after Week 1. Then, during Week 2, Bosa exited after suffering a torn ACL on that awful MetLife Stadium field. What followed were two hellacious comebacks. But, the good news is that the end is in sight. Bosa and Ford will retake the field when the Niners open their season against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. Bosa showed off videos during his rehab, and the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year looked ahead of schedule during the process. Bosa's coaches never questioned the defensive end's work ethic. They know the pass rusher can accomplish whatever he sets his mind
