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%

There are a lot of San Francisco 49ers fans at Ford Field today. However, the majority of the stadium is still filled with Detroit Lions fans. Those fans were probably crushed to see linebacker Dre Greenlaw pick off new Lions quarterback Jared Goff and take the football into the end zone, giving the Niners a 28-10 lead before halftime.

49ers-Lions: Kyle Shanahan preparing for the expected and unexpected from Jared Goff

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers defense will see a familiar foe on Sunday in Detroit. The team will open its season against quarterback Jared Goff and the Lions. The Niners, of course, played against Goff regularly when he was with the Los Angeles Rams. An offseason trade shipped him out of the NFC West and to Motor City. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't making any assumptions, though. This is a new Lions team with a lot of new players and new coaching staff. So there isn't really a way to predict what they might do. As for Goff himself, Shanahan respects the former division foe and knows not to underestimate him. "Goff's played at a very high level in this league," Shanahan said this afternoon on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "We all know, if he has



49ers rise to No. 3, fall to No. 14, and hold ground at No. 9 in wild Week 2 NFL power rankings

The NFL power rankings for Week 2 illustrate the sports media's split over the 49ers after their blowout-turned-nail-biter victory over the Lions. If you're confused about the San Francisco 49ers after their 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 1, you are not alone. In Week 2, NFL "Power Rankers" fell into one of two general camps as it relates to San Francisco: Those who think the 49ers took a clear step forward as they trounced the Lions over the first three quarters of Sunday's contest, and those who, after witnessing the Lions' improbable comeback attempt expectedly fall short, don't quite know what to think. It was a rough weekend for NFL analysts, as many in a long list of questionable media darlings tasted their first defeats of the



Recap: 49ers build big lead before holding off late surge in 41-33 Week 1 win over Lions

By Kirk Larrabee

The San Francisco 49ers started their 2021 season on Sunday with a win that was equal parts convincing and frightening, holding the Lions at Ford Field in Detroit by the score of 41-33. The 49ers built a 41-17 fourth quarter lead before the Lions added two late scores, due in part to them recovering an onsides kick with under two minutes to play. The Lions
