So the combine is officially here! But we're still a day away from the things I actually care about: the drills. I love watching the drills, and I base a lot of my opinions off of them (well, not my overall opinion, but I do take them into account).
At any rate, I'm actually pretty excited for this draft class. The top end of the NFL Draft isn't stacked by any means and I agree with Mike Mayock in that respect. There aren't many game-changers at the top of the draft, but it is a very, very deep class at many positions.
Fortunately, they're deep at some of the big positions that the 49ers need this year. So that's a plus. Anyway, on to your quick links for the day.
