Gets worse by a lot... 4 to 5 places.
The silver lining of a loss this past Monday night would have been a mid first round pick.

Now we are guaranteed to be picking in the 20s or worse.

If we want a top tier talent in the first round (and not being stupid and picking a running back), picking at 27 to 32 isn't the ticket.
If we do lose to the Niners this Sunday... the good news is at least our draft pick should be in the lower 20s instead of the upper 20s. Which still isn't ideal but elite players coming out of college are much likely to fall to say 22 or 23 as opposed to 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, or 32.

There are usually only 17 to 20 players with a first round grade on a yearly basis. Odds are the first pick has a 2nd round grade regardless. Not something to worry about. Just keep winning.

Making the playoffs, a teams lowest pick is 19th. Ours, if we would have lost would have been 23rd since Vikings also lost.
divisional round, if we lose will be between 25 and 28.

Give me #32 and a SB win over a higher draft pick anytime.

TB will be picking 19th since they had the worse record of the playoff teams. Lions, Steelers, Commanders had a better record, but they will be electing ahead of TB.

I don't care where they draft we are in a SB push lol. If they pick last I could give a damn lol.

Besides, it's not our draft pick that matters. It's that first-rounder we got from Cleveland for Cooper. Sorry, what's that? Oh, well at least a second-rounder then. What? Seriously?

Damn.
