2016 BRB NFL Mock Draft: With the Seventh Pick, the San Francisco 49ers Select...

New, comments

Colin Kaepernick's time in the Bay seems to be coming to a close. Should the Niners look to replace him with their first round pick?

With the seventh pick if the 2016 BRB NFL Mock Draft, Astrosbro95 has opted not to repeat one of the worst mistakes the San Francisco 49ers have made in the last two decades – passing on a talented quarterback from Cal when they get the chance to draft him.

Round 1 – Pick #7: (QB) Jared Goff, California

If he’s still sitting there at 7, a 49ers staffer will literally be sprinting with the pick.

Colin Kaepernick is as divorced from the 49ers as any QB could be. Rather than a toxic locker room (truthfully, the organization as a whole can’t seem to keep any player in house), we’ll start over with a shiny new passer.

Goff’s calling card is his incredible accuracy. His completion percentage rose from 60.4% to 62.1% in 2013 and 2014, respectively, before hitting a peak last season at 64.5%. Furthermore, what gives great hope for this team is the rise in yards/attempt in each season as well as TD-to-INT ratio.

All in all, he provides an incredible anchor for a team that lacks a true leader. For an offense lacking in firepower, Goff and Hyde should be a solid tandem to build around.

The Philadelphia Eagles and XinMing Kuon are now officially on the clock. Their pick will be posted at 4:00 PM CDT this afternoon.
