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.

At some point, Richard Sherman will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He'll have to wait until five years after retirement to do so, and some wonder when the San Francisco 49ers' veteran cornerback will decide to call it a career. It sounds like that will be after the 2023 season. And Sherman hopes to continue playing for the 49ers. "I do believe that I have good years left in me," Sherman told reporters after Thursday's practice. "I'm only going to play three after this. That's what the wife (Ashley) told me. I don't call any shots after that. "Three years after this, if the good San Francisco 49ers would love to keep me on this ball club, I'd love to be here.
