2017 NFL Draft order: 49ers slowly move up the draft board through Week 5

Time to add in a weekly assessment of the 2017 NFL Draft order.

The 2017 NFL Draft is over six months away, but the San Francisco 49ers 1-4 start has some of us (maybe a lot of us) pondering the draft implications of the rest of their schedule. The draft order is going to change significantly over the next few months, but it is still worth taking a look at where things stand. I don’t have strength of schedule numbers in front of me, so for this early look at things, we’ll just split teams up by their current record.


Cleveland Browns


San Francisco 49ers
Cleveland Chicago Bears
Miami Dolphins
San Diego Chargers
New York Jets


New Orleans Saints
Carolina Panthers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jacksonville Jaguars


Detroit Lions
Indianapolis Colts
Tennessee Titans
New York Giants
Arizona Cardinals
Cincinnati Bengals

The Panthers and Bucs square off on Monday Night Football. I’m rooting for the Bucs to win because I figure the Panthers will end up with a better record by the end of the season. But, I’ll take either winning at this point!

Here’s a quick look at next week’s schedule and some pertinent teams around the 49ers in the draft order.

0-5 Browns @ 2-3 Titans

1-4 49ers @ 3-2 Bills
4-1 Broncos @ 1-4 Chargers
1-3 Panthers @ 1-3 Saints
1-3 Jaguars @ 1-4 Bears
4-1 Steelers @ 1-4 Dolphins
1-4 Jets @ 2-3 Cardinals

3-2 Ravens @ 2-3 Giants
3-2 Rams @ 2-3 Lions
2-3 Bengals @ 4-1 Patriots
2-3 Colts @ 3-2 Texans
