49ers Mock Drafts: Quarterbacks still lead, but DeForest Buckner gains ground

Apr 13, 2016 at 3:37 PM--


While his numbers dipped slightly this week, Cal QB Jared Goff continues to lead mock drafts as the San Francisco 49ers' projected pick in the first round of this month's NFL Draft. The former Golden Bear quarterback has led our survey, now consisting of 107 mock drafts, for five straight weeks.

The top two projected players are both quarterbacks and consume 73.9 percent of the total votes all by themselves. Goff has 56.1 percent while North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz, sitting in a distant second place, is projected to land with the 49ers by 17.8 percent of the mocks surveyed.

Last week, the third place spot was tied by UCLA OLB Myles Jack, Ohio State DE Joey Bosa, and Oregon DE DeForest Buckner. This week, Buckner is all alone in third place going to the 49ers in 5.6 percent of the mocks surveyed.

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.

This week is a homecoming for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance, who played high school football in Marshall, Minnesota. His high school is busing players and coaches to tomorrow's joint practice between the 49ers and Minnesota Vikings. In addition, Lance expects a strong contingent of family and friends at Saturday's preseason game between the two teams.

That has more to do with the 49ers playing three exhibition games in 14 days. Only four days sit between the game against the Vikings and the finale against the Houston Texans.
