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.

Below is the complete breakdown of our survey of mock drafts for the past three weeks. 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.

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

By Marc Adams

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses. Interior Defensive Line Leading up to the 2020 draft, the 49ers traded away DeForest Buckner. They selected



SI bullish on 49ers' Kyle Shanahan in head coach power rankings

By David Bonilla
Jul 17, 2021

Kyle Shanahan owns a record of 29-35 as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. He has won more than six games just once in his four seasons with the team. Yet, despite the losing records, those around the league still hold Shanahan in high esteem due to the coach's creativity as a play designer and play-caller. In his first two seasons as a head coach, Shanahan won a combined 10 games. However, his fortunes appeared to change in 2017, his first season in San Francisco, when the 49ers traded for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the team rattled off five consecutive wins to end the season. Expectations were high entering the next season, but the team's hopes were dashed when Garoppolo was lost to a torn ACL. Things seemed to come together in 2019. While the



CB K'Waun Williams labeled as 49ers' secret weapon by Bleacher Report

K'Waun Williams is one of the best nickel cornerbacks in the NFL and a vital component of the San Francisco 49ers defense. There was some concern that he might be among several players slated to depart for other teams this offseason. However, Williams was re-signed to a one-year deal and, for the most part, San Francisco's brain trust managed to keep the team mostly intact. When healthy, Williams has proved his value. He showed that in 2019 during one of his best campaigns, posting an 80.3 overall Pro Football Focus grade during his over 700 snaps in the regular season. During the ensuring playoff run, Williams allowed just 66 receiving yards in three playoff games. Recently, Bleacher Report compiled a list of every NFL team's "secret weapon", where
