It is no surprise that Cal QB Jared Goff continues to lead mock drafts as the San Francisco 49ers' projected pick with the seventh overall selection in this month's NFL Draft. What is interesting is that Goff's lead as the top candidate by "experts" and fans continues to grow. The former Golden Bear quarterback has led our survey, now consisting of 105 mock drafts, for four straight weeks.

The top two projected players are both quarterbacks and consume 78.1 percent of the total votes all by themselves. Goff has 58.1 percent while North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz, sitting in a distant second place, is projected to land with the 49ers by 20 percent of the mocks surveyed.
Last week, the third place spot was tied by UCLA OLB Myles Jack and Ohio State DE Joey Bosa. This week, the pair are joined by Oregon DE DeForest Buckner.
Quarterbacks make up exactly 80 percent of the projections for the 49ers, a one percent increase from last week. Of course, that high percentage is not surprising considering the amount of media attention that is currently focused on the Colin Kaepernick situation.

In 2015, an overwhelming majority of mock drafts had the 49ers taking Arik Armstead out of Oregon with their first-round selection. While that actually happened, San Francisco was able to do so after trading down a few spots.
