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

The transition from Trey Lance back to Jimmy Garoppolo has not been difficult for the San Francisco 49ers. Teammates are familiar with Garoppolo, who had been the Niners' starting quarterback since the final handful of games of the 2017 season. Garoppolo returned this season in a backup role.
