49ers Move Back up to Fifth in 2016 NFL Draft Order

Dec 28, 2015 at 7:17 AM--


Some good came from the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. They moved up a spot in their projected 2016 draft order, back up to the fifth overall spot that they occupied just two weeks ago. Last week, following their loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, they had fallen a spot to sixth based on record and strength of schedule (SOS) if the season had ended following that week.

How high the team will actually select will be determined by their final game and their final record. For the third week in a row, the top spot is still owned by the Tennessee Titans, who can clinch it with a loss next week.

Monday night's game between the Denver Broncos and the Cincinnati Bengals will have no impact on the 49ers' position.

The Carolina Panthers, who suffered their first defeat of the season on Sunday, 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 (Really 31 since the New England Patriots have forfeited their pick) first-round spots if the season ended today.

The Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders are currently tied for the 15th selection.

1 Tennessee Titans 3-12 .493

NFL.com ranks 49ers running back No. 22 among NFL RB1s, but its probably not who you think

NFL.com analyst Maurice Jones-Drew, a former NFL running back, ranked all 32 RB1s across the league. He placed one San Francisco 49ers running back at No. 22. Although, it's probably not the player who first popped into your head. Raheem Mostert was the 49ers' leading rusher during the 2019 season. He gained 772 yards on 137 carries with eight rushing and two receiving touchdowns before a playoff performance that made everyone take notice of the former undrafted free agent. Mostert wasn't, however, credited with a start. In fact, he's never started an NFL game. That's because there is always another running back on the field when the offense takes

Raheem Mostert asking to be 49ers' highest-paid running back, per report

By David Bonilla
Jul 8, 2020

News broke on Wednesday that San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade after what his agent described as months of unproductive contract talks. Mostert is signed through the 2021 season but will earn a base salary of just $2.575 million this year. Mostert and his agent either want a new deal or want the running back to go to a team that will offer him one. What exactly is Mostert requesting from the 49ers? Is it something completely unreasonable for the team's leading rusher and the player who led all running backs in yards-per-carry last season? It doesn't sound like it. RELATED:
