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.

Quarterback Nick Mullens could get his ninth NFL start on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers visit the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Starter Jimmy Garoppolo will not practice today and is a longshot to play after suffering a high-ankle sprain this past weekend against the New York Jets. "I would be surprised if Jimmy gets back later in the week," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters. "I know he's still pulling to do it. But Nick's ready to go, and if something happens to Nick, C.J. (Beathard) will be ready to go. "Nick's got a lot of playing time with us. 2018 prepared him for moments like this.

49ers DB Jimmie Ward not surprised Frank Gore still going strong at age 37

By Kirk Larrabee

There's probably a number of people who never expected to see New York Jets running back Frank Gore still going strong in the NFL at age 37, but his former teammate Jimmie Ward isn't one of them. Ward is one of three current 49ers players who were on the roster when Gore was last with the team in 2014, with long snapper Kyle Nelson and cornerback Dontae Johnson being the others. Gore was a model of consistency back then, having rushed for over 1,000 yards in eight of nine seasons going back to 2006, and had just wrapped up a season of 1,106 yards and four touchdowns when he and the 49ers didn't come to terms on a new contract after the 2014 season. Gore will face off against his former team when the 49ers face the Jets on Sunday, the second time he's done so
