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%
OT Ronnie Stanley Notre Dame 3.3% 3.2%
RB Ezekiel Elliott Ohio State - 2.1%
DE Joey Bosa Ohio State 3.3% 2.1%
OLB Myles Jack UCLA 4.3% 2.1%
DT A'Shawn Robinson Alabama 1.1% 1.1%
WR Laquon Treadwell Mississippi 3.3% 1.1%
QB Paxton Lynch Memphis 3.3% 1.1%

Rapoport: 49ers willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo until cut-down day

By David Bonilla
Aug 7

Jimmy Garoppolo isn't practicing, but he is throwing next to his soon-to-be former San Francisco 49ers teammates. He looks healthy, too, according to one reporter. "I watched Jimmy Garoppolo make about 25 full-tilt throws to a junior staffer on a side field during the 49ers' training-camp practice Friday," wrote Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, "and there's no question he's close to 100 percent healed after his March shoulder surgery and one of the top 32 QBs in the league right now. Maybe it's a shorter list than 32." The quarterback is cleared to do whatever he needs within the restrictions of his rehabilitation from that March 8 procedure. He has full



Brandon Aiyuk: 'Enforcer' Deebo Samuel brings different energy to 49ers practice; Charvarius Ward a 'strong, physical corner'

By David Bonilla

Brandon Aiyuk spoke to reporters after Sunday's practice. The wide receiver is having a tremendous training camp in his third offseason with the San Francisco 49ers. Veteran safety Jimmie Ward has noticed a difference in the 24-year-old wideout, saying Aiyuk is one of this year's training camp standouts. That's high praise, considering the receiver's position a year ago. Aiyuk appeared to be a training camp disappointment last offseason, seemingly landing in head coach Kyle Shanahan's dog house and being limited to one catch for six yards in the 49ers' first two games. However, as the season progressed, the receiver turned things around and looks to be on course for a breakout



49ers QB Trey Lance bounces back with strong Tuesday outing

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance had a bounce-back performance on Tuesday, completing 14/17 passes with a rushing touchdown, while consistently picking up the chains in one of his best practices during training camp yet. Lance, who completed 4/12 passes on Sunday with an interception, was not as bad as the numbers indicated on Monday, but Tuesday's performance was certainly a pleasant sight as the 49ers head into their first preseason game on Friday against the Green Bay Packers. Lance started the day strong, completing his first five passes, which included a 15-yard



Why George Kittle loves going against Jimmie Ward; 49ers safety forecasts 'Pick City'

By David Bonilla
Aug 9

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice and started the conversation by praising a defensive teammate—Jimmie Ward. Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against
