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.

An Arsenal of Weapons: The 49ers Have Quietly Become Even More Dangerous on Offense in 2024

By Don Atkinson
May 13

It's not a shock to anyone who looks back at the past two NFL seasons to contemplate that the San Francisco 49ers' offense has finally stepped out of the shadow cast by the team's ever-imposing defense. Since their 2019 Super Bowl run, players like Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, and former 49ers Richard Sherman and Jimmie Ward have garnered most of the attention when talking about the team. That was indeed the case until 2022, when future Hall-of-Fame running back Christian McCaffrey, who came to San Francisco in a mid-season trade with the Carolina Panthers, changed the conversation. The 49ers' offense was suddenly seen not just as a semi-capable complement to a sterling defense, but rather as a unit that could put up some points, and in a dramatic way. With the
