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.

Pro Football Focus released its latest mock draft, courtesy of analyst Ben Linsey. The San Francisco 49ers are highly anticipated to select a quarterback following their recent trade up to the No. 3 spot. They'll have their choice of some good options. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson nearly a lock to go No. 1 and No. 2, San Francisco can go with Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Mac Jones of Alabama. Linsey has San Francisco going with the player who has been the popular choice among 49ers fans—Fields. "Fields' game has been put under the



Jeremiah on 49ers' pick in latest mock draft: 'I am surprised that everything you hear points toward Jones'

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"



Tannenbaum sees Mac Jones as 'very similar' to Matt Ryan, has QB to 49ers in mock draft

Yet another mock draft has the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the No. 3 overall pick. This one from ESPN's Mike Tannenbaum is a bit different, though. While some analysts feel that Jones-to-49ers is the most likely scenario, many feel that the selection would be a reach, especially with potentially higher-ceiling prospects Justin Fields and Trey Lance likely to still be on the board. The latest ESPN mock draft has Tannenbaum, a former NFL executive, playing the role of general manager for all 32 teams and choosing the players he feels are the best fit for

Justin Wong just released his latest Mock Draft Roundup. The overwhelming favorite projection for the San Francisco 49ers at the No. 3 overall pick is the selection of quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama. Add NFL Network's Peter Schrager to the list of those following that narrative. The Good Morning Football host released his own mock draft on Thursday morning, and like most others, it has Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU coming off the board with the top two selections. Those predictions seem like
