Jared Goff continues to hold strong lead as 49ers’ projected pick in mock drafts

Mar 23, 2016 at 3:49 PM--


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.

Player School Last Week This Week
QB Jared Goff California 53.3% 57.9%
QB Carson Wentz North Dakota State 21.7% 24.2%
DE DeForest Buckner Oregon 4.3% 3.2%

RB Ezekiel Elliott Ohio State - 2.1%
DE Joey Bosa Ohio State 3.3% 2.1%

San Francisco 49ers projected 2021 depth chart: Post-draft

By Kirk Larrabee
Apr 29, 2021

How will the 49ers' depth chart look as the NFL Draft moves on? That's a question we'll attempt to answer here. It's a bit difficult at this time of the year to accurately project a depth chart, given how many players are new to the team, how many will come and go in the weeks ahead, and how many positions may shift down the line. There's an awful lot of guesswork going on here, but we'll give it a try based on who is on the roster at the moment. The 49ers will release their first unofficial depth chart at some point in the weeks or months ahead. We'll be making updates to this chart as the NFL Draft concludes and more players are added to the 49ers. Be sure to check back for updates. Offense QUARTERBACK 1.



49ers projected to be awarded compensatory picks in 2022 for losses of Thomas, Hyder

The good news is that the San Francisco 49ers are projected to be awarded two draft picks next year for the losses of defensive linemen Solomon Thomas and Kerry Hyder. That could help, considering the team doesn't own a first-round pick in either of the next two drafts. The bad news is that the selections are projected to be seventh-rounders. As they say, something is better than nothing. Each year, 32 compensatory picks are awarded across the league. Who gets them is based on which players were lost and added the previous offseason. Basically, if you lost more qualifying free agents than you gained, you are awarded compensatory picks. The bonus selections come in Rounds 3 through 7 and deciding who gets which pick is based on an internal formula



Ranking the 49ers Rookies Based on Projected Playing Time

By Rohan Chakravarthi

With the 2021 NFL Draft officially over, the questions have moved on from who the 49ers are drafting to when these newly drafted rookies will see the field. Last weekend, the 49ers made the bold choice of QB Trey Lance with the No.3 overall pick in the draft. However, just because he was their first selection doesn't mean that he will be the one to see the most playing time out of all the 49ers' rookies. Sitting in front of him is incumbent starter, Jimmy Garoppolo, and the 49ers have made many reassuring remarks that he will remain their starting quarterback in 2021. With that in mind, let's rank the 49ers draftees based on projected playing



La Canfora: Strong expectation among NFL GMs that 49ers try to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this week

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via
