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.

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

By David Bonilla

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



Rapoport: Trey Lance 'cannot win' the 49ers' starting job vs. Cardinals

What happens if San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance shocks the NFL world with a strong performance today against the Arizona Cardinals and Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) is healthy heading into Week 7 after the bye? Nothing, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (h/t to Alex Didion of NBC Sports). The job will reportedly still belong to Garoppolo, no matter what happens this afternoon at State Farm Stadium. "San Francisco has been very clear that, not just this week—although, they were clear this week as well, really, ever since Trey Lance was drafted No. 3 [overall] when the 49ers traded all the way



49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Trey Lance: 'He will give us a chance to win a lot going forward'

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters this afternoon, nearly 24 hours after his team suffered its third consecutive loss of the season. There was a lot of bad from the trip to State Farm Stadium to play the Arizona Cardinals. However, there was also some good. The game was rookie Trey Lance's first NFL start. The 21-year-old quarterback had his ups and downs, but it was an opportunity for growth. Lance was playing because the 49ers' regular starter, Jimmy Garoppolo, is dealing with a calf injury. "I was proud of him," Shanahan said of Lance via a conference call. "I thought he went into a tough environment versus a real good team. I thought he did a lot of real good things. He threw a bad pick on that first drive, but I thought he
