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.

After getting his feet wet in his NFL debut last week against the New York Jets, rookie wide receiver and first-round draft pick Brandon Aiyuk took the next step against the New York Giants Sunday, finishing with five catches for 70 yards along with three carries for 31 yards and a touchdown.
