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.

49ers frustrations lead to Trent Williams scuffle vs. Eagles

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Jan 29

The San Francisco 49ers lost in crushing fashion to the Philadelphia Eagles in a 31-7 game, going home in the NFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season. The game ended on an ugly note, as left tackle Trent Williams was ejected for throwing punches late in the 4th quarter. Following the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan understood the frustrations that Williams had, given the physicality between the teams. "You got two physical teams. Guys playing hard and I know we were frustrated at the end," said Shanahan. "Guys wanted to fight [and] wanted to play and it was a frustrating game for us." While tight end George Kittle wasn't involved in the melee, he was seen trying to break up the fight, as he didn't want his teammates fined

The end of the 2022 season brings a whole new set of questions for the San Francisco 49ers -- questions that will start to get answered in the weeks and months ahead after looming large in the locker room following their NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
