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

Nick Bosa: 49ers not too shaken up about loss to Cardinals, will 'come back strong'

The San Francisco 49ers weren't about making excuses following their 24-20 Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. There could have been plenty — being rusty from no preseason, injuries, the lack of a normal offseason. All NFL teams across the league had to deal with at least two of those, though. The situation wasn't unique to the 49ers. You'll probably hear a lot more this week about the potential for a Super Bowl hangover. 49ers players aren't using that as an excuse either. While the goal is to get back to and win the big game this season, players have continually said they are taking things one week at a time and remain focused on each opponent ahead of them. "I mean, I hope we're not thinking about last year. We just played a

The San Francisco 49ers entered the offseason motivated by February's Super Bowl defeat. Maybe that wasn't enough because the team gained some extra motivation the hard way on Sunday after the Arizona Cardinals pulled off the upset 24-20 win at Levi's Stadium. The loss forces San Francisco to play catchup with the rest of the division. It is the only NFC West squad that suffered a defeat during Week 1. The 49ers are back to work this week and beginning preparations for their two-game road trip to the East Coast, where they will face the New York Jets and New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in back-to-back weekends. The team's focus remains on the opponent

The San Francisco 49ers could see a healthy dose of Frank Gore on Sunday when they travel to MetLife Stadium to play the New York Jets. The running back remains the 49ers' all-time rushing leader. He started his career with the team, played 10 seasons with San Francisco, and remains a fan favorite. Gore even has admirers on the current 49ers roster. Running back Raheem Mostert once asked former Niners tackle Joe Staley about Gore. Staley and Gore played eight seasons together. "I asked him, 'What does it take for a guy like me to be like Frank Gore?'" Mostert shared this past offseason. "Because Frank Gore is my idol. I love watching him play, and I know that Joe was blocking
