49ers Will Select Seventh in the 2016 NFL Draft

Jan 3, 2016 at 6:11 PM--


With the San Francisco 49ers 19-16 overtime win against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, the team has fallen to the seventh overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Things may shift a bit with the lower selections because of the Sunday night game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers, but for the 49ers and everyone around them, they are set.

Last week, the 49ers had moved up to the fifth overall selection with their loss to the Detroit Lions.

The team may make their selections without head coach Jim Tomsula, who is expected to be let go following a disappointing 5-11 season.

21 and below will be determined by how the playoffs finish.

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 prior to Sunday Night Football.

49ers select Justin Fields in PFF's latest mock draft

Steve Palazzolo is a senior analyst at Pro Football Focus. He recently released his latest first-round mock draft, which isn't necessarily based on what he thinks each NFL team will do with each selection. This one is based on what Palazzolo believes is best for each organization and the picks he would make if the decision were up to him. As is the case with most mock drafts, Palazzolo has quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson going No. 1 and No. 2 overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets, respectively. That brings us to the decision for the San Francisco 49ers. The team traded up to the No. 3 spot last month to acquire a quarterback of the future. It can choose between Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Mac Jones of



Former NFL QB explains why criticisms of Justin Fields, potential 49ers draft pick, are 'bogus'

No one is questioning Justin Fields' athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback's ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields' ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating. Maybe all of his skeptics, who want to find ways to bring the quarterback down, are wrong. "For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting

Steals the 49ers Should Target in the 2021 NFL Draft

By Adithya Peruvemba

Throughout the past couple of weeks, the anticipation and coverage around who the Niners will take with the third pick in the draft has dramatically built to the expense of the discussion on who they should take in the later rounds of the draft. The 49ers' offseason signings and new free agency acquisitions have certainly exceeded expectations but there are certainly still plenty of holes and weak patches on the roster. Addressing these roster spots efficiently in the draft is crucial as the players they pick will be inexpensive and productive, leaving room for even more cap space for next year's free agency. This year, San Francisco has the following picks: 3 (1st Round); 43 (2nd Round); 102 (3rd Round); 117 (4th Round); 155, 172, 180 (Round 5); 194 (Round 6); 230 (Round
