Final Mock Draft Roundup: DeForest Buckner takes over top spot for 49ers

Apr 27, 2016 at 2:29 PM--


On the eve of the 2016 NFL Draft, we took our final survey of mock drafts from around the web. For the first time since we have started, Cal QB Jared Goff, who could be selected first overall by the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night, has been replaced as the player that most mocks had as the San Francisco 49ers' first round selection.

The new player that the majority of mocks are projecting to the 49ers is Oregon DE DeForest Buckner. Goff, who at one point was San Francisco's selection in over 58-percent of mock drafts, is now listed as the 49ers' pick in less than 6-percent of mocks – with most of those simply being outdated. Buckner is San Francisco's selection in 32-percent of mocks. This is thanks to the Rams and Philadelphia Eagles trading into the number one and two spots respectively. Each are predicted to select quarterbacks, with the other signal caller being North Dakota State's Carson Wentz.

In second place as the 49ers' selection is Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley in over 17-percent of mocks and UCLA LB Myles Jack is in third place, being projected as the selection in over 12-percent of mocks.


Memphis' Paxton Lynch is now the quarterback seen most often in mocks to the 49ers. He is the pick in over 7-percent of mocks.

The NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday at 5 PM PT. The 49ers own the seventh overall selection.

Below is the complete breakdown of our survey of mock drafts for the past three weeks, with a list now consisting of 122 mocks. 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.
