Cal QB Jared Goff, who the San Francisco 49ers are working out today in Berkeley along with several Cal wide receivers, remains the team's overwhelming projected pick among mock drafts in next month's NFL Draft. Goff has led our survey, now consisting of 100 mock drafts, for three weeks straight and has been the favorite projection for the 49ers' seventh overall selection for much longer than that. Although, his percentage has dropped slightly from 57.9 percent to 55 percent.
The top two players remain the same as last week, with the majority of mocks having the 49ers selecting Goff and North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz coming in a distant second. UCLA OLB Myles Jack returns to the top three after being pushed out last week. This time, he shares the number three spot with Ohio State DE Joey Bosa.
Quarterbacks make up 79 percent of the projections for the 49ers, a slight drop from 83 percent last week.
Why even report data from mock drafts other than to see where analysts and the media see players going? Last year, an overwhelming percentage of them had the 49ers taking Arik Armstead out of Oregon with their first round selection. While that actually happened, they were able to do so after trading down a few spots.
