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.

Watch Deebo Samuel's amazing TD run, extending 49ers lead over Cowboys

By David Bonilla
Jan 16

Deebo Samuel called himself a "wide back" this past week. That's because he's a wide receiver that can play running back and do it well. The Dallas Cowboys are experiencing this first hand in the NFC Wild Card playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. With his 49ers holding onto a 16-7 lead in the third quarter, cornerback K'Waun Williams picked off Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, getting the football back for the offense. On the next play, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo handed the football off to Samuel, who made some magic happen and ended up in the end zone for a 26-yard



49ers-Packers: Jimmy Garoppolo 'feeling good' he'll play but will 'feel it out' throughout the week

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo hopes to be on the field when his San Francisco 49ers face the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The quarterback isn't just dealing with the torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb suffered in Week 16. He sustained a right shoulder sprain in Sunday's Wild Card win against the Dallas Cowboys. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will be limited in Tuesday's practice. Before heading out to the practice field, the quarterback spoke with reporters and was asked how confident he would play on Saturday. "We'll feel it out throughout the week," Garoppolo responded. "But yeah,



Peter King feels 49ers should keep Jimmy Garoppolo, but first-rounder in trade not unthinkable

The San Francisco 49ers are in the middle of a playoff run, their second in three seasons. They hope to extend their season beyond Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Still, even now, it's difficult not to wonder about the Niners' looming offseason quarterback decision. For many, there is no choice. The 49ers will have to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo, transitioning to the team's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. Obviously, San Francisco would like to get something in return for Garoppolo, if that happens. Of course, Peter King of NBC Sports isn't so sure parting with Garoppolo is the best option. "I've had a two-fold opinion about Garoppolo," King told 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto on Tuesday. "Number



49ers-Rams: Trent Williams believes he will play but won't practice on Wednesday

By David Bonilla
Jan 26

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters ahead of Wednesday's practice and said that tackle Trent Williams and running back Elijah Mitchell will not participate. This week, the 49ers are holding three full practices as they prepare to play the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. Williams is dealing with the ankle injury suffered on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Mitchell has been bothered by a knee injury. Shanahan added that Williams is again determined to play, and the coach believes that is a possibility. "I haven't seen Trent yet today," Shanahan said. "I'll see him here in a little bit when we go out to the field, but Trent's the same as he was that game (Week 18 vs. Rams). In Trent's mind, there's no
