Bears Win and 49ers Remain at No. 2 Spot in Draft Order

Oct 31, 2016 at 8:34 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are enjoying their bye and did not play a game this week. With their 1-6 record, they remained slotted for the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft thanks to a Chicago Bears 20-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night. Had the Bears lost, they would have (at least temporarily) taken over the number two spot. The Bears now head into their bye week.

Of course, the number one spot still belongs to the winless Cleveland Browns. 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.

49ers rookies, quarterbacks, and rehabbing players report to training camp today -- and then leave

By David Bonilla

The four San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks will report to the team's facility today, along with rookies and any players rehabbing injuries. The rest of the roster will report on Tuesday, July 28. Then they will leave for two days. Don't expect any big features showing players interacting or even speaking with coaches coming out of the 49ers' official site over the next few days. Players are just arriving to undergo COVID-19 testing. Then they will self-quarantine for two days, either at home or the team hotel, and then return for the second round of testing. Should each test return negative, that player will be allowed into the building. And no, that's not when the fun begins. NFL insider Ian Rapoport laid out the league's ramp-up

More experienced 49ers hungrier than ever to win the Super Bowl, says Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman knows what it's like to win a Super Bowl. He also knows what it's like to lose a Super Bowl. The cornerback knew that before joining the San Francisco 49ers and relived the experience in February. Sherman feels there are valuable lessons to be learned in a Super Bowl loss, though, especially for a young and less-experienced team. He remembers a playoff loss to the Atlanta Falcons while with Seattle, and how it made his Seahawks hungrier than ever. "The next year, it was like the season couldn't start fast enough, and it couldn't go by fast enough," Sherman said during an Instagram interview with Pro Football Focus. "Everybody in our way was just simply that — they were in our way." Sherman sees the same thing with these 49ers

Why three of five Bleacher Report writers pick Seahawks over 49ers to win NFC West

By David Bonilla
Jul 31, 2020

While the Seattle Seahawks closed the gap a bit on the San Francisco 49ers with the trade for safety Jamal Adams, the Super Bowl runner-ups remain the favorite to repeat as NFC West champions. Bleacher Report may not see it that way, though. The site asked five of its NFL writers to pick each division's winners, and the NFC West wasn't the landslide victory for the 49ers that you might expect. In fact, three of the five writers went with the Seahawks, including longtime 49ers fan Matt Miller. Only Gary Davenport and Brad Gagnon picked San Francisco to repeat as division champions while Miller, Tyler Dunne, and Brent Sobleski each
