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.

On Monday, the San Francisco 49ers began padded practices. The contract extension for Deebo Samuel was also announced. It's a fun time of the year, as the team prepares to make another run for a sixth Super Bowl championship. We opened up the 49ers mailbag and had plenty of questions to choose from. Let's respond to a handful: Diana Kayatani: There's talk about Jimmy possibly going to the Seahawks. If and when he leaves, where should he go? Felix Watkins: Where do you think Jimmy is going? The world awaits news on Jimmy Garoppolo. Will he be traded or released? Where will he go? Will he be a starter or a backup? How does he get his hair to look so nice? I wish we already had the answer to those questions. The good



49ers move up in NFL.com power rankings

The San Francisco 49ers are trending upwards, even with reports from Santa Clara of quarterback Trey Lance having an up-and-down training camp. Still, the team is talented enough to withstand any growing pains by the second-year player and new full-time starter. Apparently, Dan Hanzus of Around the NFL knows this, and that's why Kyle Shanahan's squad has moved up one spot in NFL.com's most recent power rankings, landing at No. 4. "It's full speed ahead for the Trey Lance era in San Francisco," wrote Hanzus. "There's likely to be some turbulence for a young passer with limited experience, but Lance has been set up for success after a



49ers Notebook: Why Jimmie Ward has no love for the Rams; Brandon Aiyuk moves on from Fred Warner scuffle; DeMeco Ryans talks second-year DBs

What rubbed 49ers safety Jimmie Ward the wrong way about the Los Angeles Rams last season to the point where he's already looking to face off against them on the field? Ward spoke about that subject on Sunday, as he was one of a handful of players to talk with local and national media during and after 49ers practice. Also speaking with reporters was defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, who provided a number of thoughts on a few defensive players who are competing for roster spots and playing time. For a rundown of what Ward said Sunday as well as some quotes from Ryans, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk's thoughts on his squabble with linebacker Fred Warner, and much more, check out this version of 49ers Notebook.

Trent Williams: Trey Lance gives 49ers two offenses merged into one

By David Bonilla
Aug 9

Trey Lance has had an uneven training camp as the young San Francisco 49ers quarterback navigates the ups and downs of his first offseason as a starting quarterback. However, his Tuesday practice may have been his best so far, bouncing back from a poor Sunday outing. "[T]he second-year quarterback had a strong performance, mainly showcasing poise and accuracy while moving the offense downfield with throws to all facets of the field," wrote Rohan Chakravarthi. The expectation is that Lance, a quarterback with the potential to thrive as a passer and runner, will elevate the 49ers offense to a level that will give opposing defenses headaches. Veteran
