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of mock drafts, is now listed as the 49ers' pick in less than 6-percent of mocks – with most of those simply being outdated.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.

Todd McShay has 49ers going cornerback, not quarterback, in latest mock draft

With the 2020 NFL season over for those teams not in the playoffs, like the San Francisco 49ers, it's officially mock-draft season. The Niners own the No. 12 overall pick in this year's rookie selection process. ESPN analyst Todd McShay released his latest mock draft, which does not include any trades, given the draft is still months away. He has just two quarterbacks — Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU — being selected ahead of the 49ers' first-round selection. Yet, the analyst doesn't have general manager John Lynch, head coach Kyle Shanahan, and company going

Pro Football Focus released what is sure to be a controversial mock draft, at least in the eyes of San Francisco 49ers fans. Anthony Treash admits that this mock doesn't necessarily represent what he thinks will happen during the annual rookie selection event, but what he would do if he were in charge of each team's draft. Many predict that the 49ers brass might go quarterback with the team's first-round pick, even though John Lynch recently said that isn't the plan right

It looks like the San Francisco 49ers struck gold at wide receiver for the second consecutive year. It was Deebo Samuel in 2019, and in 2020, the Bay Area team landed another versatile wideout via the draft in Brandon Aiyuk. Aiyuk finished the season with 60 receptions for 748 yards with five touchdowns. He added six carries for 77 rushing yards and another two scores on the ground. The superb first year was enough to land Aiyuk on Pro Football Focus' 2020 NFL All-Rookie Team. "The 49ers struck again," wrote Ben Linsey. "Aiyuk is in the same mold as the George Kittles and the Deebo Samuelses added to San
