49ers Move into Second in 2017 Draft Order

Oct 23, 2016 at 10:38 PM--


There is a silver lining to the San Francisco 49ers losing their sixth-straight game. They moved up two spots in their projected 2017 draft order. Last week, they were in line to have the fourth overall selection in the draft. Following Week 7's 34-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they have moved up to the second overall pick if the season were to end today. The 49ers win a tiebreaker with the Chicago Bears due to a weaker strength of schedule.

The number one spot belongs to the winless Cleveland Browns. Monday night's game is not expected to impact the 49ers' placement at the top of the order.

How high the 49ers will actually select will be determined by the rest of the season and their final record.

Below is the current draft order, based on playoff seeding (21-32), record, and strength of schedule (SOS), for all 32 first-round spots if the season ended today. Of course, the order of playoff teams would eventually be determined by the completed playoff picture.

Colts LB Darius Leonard was happy to see 49ers move away from early-game run success

Early in their 30-18 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, the San Francisco 49ers looked like they were poised for a big evening on offense when they gashed the Colts' defense with a strong running attack on the opening drive. But things changed dramatically after that, which came as a pleasant surprise to Colts All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard. The 49ers established the run early, with running back Elijah Mitchell gaining 57 yards on five carries on an eight-play, 78-yard drive that ended with the 49ers taking a 6-0 lead on a 14-yard Mitchell touchdown run. But not long after that, the 49ers all but disappeared on offense until scoring their second touchdown of the game early in the fourth quarter. The 49ers added two more field goals before the end



John Lynch: 49ers learning from draft hits and misses; Aaron Banks, Ambry Thomas will contribute

A lot is riding on the selection of Trey Lance. The future of the San Francisco 49ers — and likely head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch — depends on the rookie quarterback developing into an impact player. The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit



Positives and Negatives: What to make of 49ers' loss to the Cardinals

Another week, another close loss, and another game with multiple missed opportunities for the 49ers. It's been the same narrative during the 49ers' current three-game losing streak, and Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals now puts the team at 2-3 on the season as it heads into its bye week. Huge news came Monday afternoon, as Kyle Shanahan noted that rookie quarterback Trey Lance suffered a left knee sprain and will be out for 1-2 weeks, leaving Nate Sudfeld as the only healthy quarterback currently on the roster. But, we'll get to the future later. First, let's break down Sunday's loss with three areas of needed improvement and four positives that came out of the game. The Problems (Yeah, I'm starting with the



Joe Staley: Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but 49ers are more exciting with Trey Lance

By Marc Adams

Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle, Joe Staley, went on KNBR Radio on Monday to discuss the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. As expected, the conversation went to the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, including who Staley believed would be under center in two weeks when the 49ers play the Indianapolis Colts. "I think he made his decision before the season even started," Staley said on the Papa & Lund show. "If Jimmy's healthy, he's going to be our quarterback this year. They want to use it as a red-shirt year, almost, for Trey this season. I was encouraged." That seemed to be the plan in the offseason, to have Lance sit and learn. Even after the game on Sunday, Kyle Shanahan continued to hold his ground that
