NFL mock drafts have Jared Goff going to Cleveland Browns or San Francisco 49ers

Same two teams!

There are two teams that seem to always be in the mix for California Golden Bears quarterback Jared Goff in the NFL Draft.

Or there are two teams that always seem to be picking Jared Goff in every mock draft known to man.

The current favorite remains the Cleveland Browns, who have the second overall pick in the draft. The Browns need a quarterback and definitely like Goff enough that it seems like a sure thing that they will take him if they prefer Jared long-term over Carson Wentz.

SB Nation's mock has Goff going 2nd to Cleveland.

Even if the Browns acquire a veteran quarterback like Robert Griffin III or Colin Kaepernick, it shouldn't stop them from taking a quarterback at No. 2. Browns coaches put Goff through the paces at his pro day last week, and will do the same for Carson Wentz this week. After that, don't be surprised if we start to get a true indication about where the Browns lean.

Another team in play? The San Francisco 49ers, who also seem to be very close to needing a quarterback of their own. Why not reboot with a local Bay Area kid who loves the team? USA Today has Goff going to the Bay Area.

He makes good decisions, has quick feet, gets rid of the ball quickly and accurately, all traits that could make him highly effective in Chip Kelly's offense - provided his 6-4, 215-pound frame can withstand the punishment that's often a byproduct of this scheme.

Which team would be a better fit for Goff, the Browns or the 49ers?
