How did it drop from 4th to 8th in draft what caused it? I thought winning moves up?

The worse a teams record is the higher (better) they pick in the draft. The draft starts at pick 1 (best pick in the draft and best pick in each round, and goes to pick 32 which is the last pick in each round of the draft)

The Jets were the only team that had not won a game prior to today. That gave them the worst record in the NFL. That was why they had the #1 (first overall) pick in the draft. Then the team that wins the super bowl gets the last pick in each round of the draft because they had the best record in football. The loser of the Super Bowl gets the second to last pick in each round of the draft and so on and so on.

when we only had 4 wins we were in line to have the 4th over all pick in the draft because we had the fourth worst record in the NFL. Because we won today and passed other teams in wins we dropped all the way down to #8 overall. (The lower the number the better when it comes to where you pick in each round of the draft)

Now that we have the 8th overall pick we will pick 8th in each of the 7 rounds of the 2021 draft.

There are many other factors but that is the general idea of the draft.

The draft is designed to give crappy teams the ability to better their teams quicker by giving them a higher pick (better chance) of selecting the better players in the draft.

To be honest I'm not that fussed about dropping a few spots in the draft. It's just nice to see them playing competitive football for a change, and a D finally forcing some turnovers. Wherever we pick there will be a good player available, it's just a matter of whether McClay and the Front Office can identify that player.

Holy crap

We are going to win this game. With all the injuries the Niners have we are pretty much playing their fucking scout team

I guess you haven't noticed then, but our team's injury situation has pretty much reduced us to a scout team
