49ers Move into Second in 2017 Draft Order

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.

By Marc Adams
Feb 28

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Other than firing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, and that little Super Bowl thing, there hasn't been much going on. But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss. So we opened up the 49ers Webzone Mailbag to see what questions you had about the team. Let's jump in and take a look. Who are you hoping for (as defensive coordinator)? - Brian J. I think we are all hoping for some big name from the outside, but I don't expect that to

By David Bonilla

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find

How owning a 1st-round pick impacts (or doesn't) the 49ers' draft strategy

By David Bonilla
Feb 29

Barring any unforeseen changes between now and the end of April, the San Francisco 49ers will be making a first-round selection in the draft for the first time since 2021. The team's last two first-round picks were part of the deal used to move up and select quarterback Trey Lance three years ago. With Lance now a member of the Dallas Cowboys and Brock Purdy inked in as the 49ers' starter for the foreseeable future, the team is in a different position heading into this year's draft. They expect to own 11 selections, including the No. 31 overall pick. General manager John Lynch and his staff are currently in Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine. They are evaluating prospects and strategizing for the upcoming draft, including what to do with their first-round

By David Bonilla
Feb 22

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah recently unveiled his updated mock draft, pinpointing the San Francisco 49ers' offensive line as an area for improvement. In his draft scenario, Jeremiah projects the 49ers selecting former Duke left tackle Graham Barton, envisioning a transition to guard in Kyle Shanahan's offensive scheme. However, some have questioned whether Barton warrants a first-round selection. On Thursday, Jeremiah addressed these concerns in a conference call with reporters, defending his choice of Barton within his mock
