An overwhelming majority of online mock drafts have the San Francisco 49ers selecting Cal QB Jared Goff in next month's draft. That has not changed from last week when Goff was the team's selection in over 53 percent of surveyed mocks. This week, that number has increased to nearly 58 percent with even more mock drafts making Goff the 49ers' selection with the seventh selection pick.
The top two players remain the same as last week, with the majority of mocks having the 49ers selecting Goff and then North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz coming in a distant second. Last week, UCLA OLB Myles Jack and Oregon DE DeForest Buckner tied for third. This week, Buckner remains tied for third, but this time with Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley.
Quarterbacks make up over 83 percent of the projections compared to last week when the position was just over 78 percent.
Normally we would say that mock drafts mean nothing and are just a fun way to see where analysts and the media see players going. However, we are reminded that last year an overwhelming percentage of them had the 49ers taking Arik Armstead with their first round selection. The 49ers did take Armstead with their first round selection. Although, they were able to do so after trading down a few spots.
Below is the complete breakdown of our survey of mock drafts this week. You can view the complete list of mocks and their selections within our 49ers Draft War Room. The reported percentages are rounded to the nearest tenth.
