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.
