Golden Nuggets: Drafting to Replace Delanie Walker

Hate to see you go, but don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya! - Jared Wickerham

Monday, April 15, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Another abbreviated Nuggets. Sorry for that, but there's not much to discuss. Draft is coming and you'll all be overwhelmed in less than a week. So, enjoy the calm before the storm.

As we all know, Delanie Walker took the money and ran to Tennessee, where he'll be the preferred target of, get this, Jake Locker. Good luck, Droptimus Prime. We need a No. 2 tight end as Walker saw the field on over 50% of the offensive snaps. Who might we draft? A lot of locals want us to get Stanford's Zach Ertz. BASG presents a different scenario. | 49ers host potential replacement for Delanie Walker (no, not Zach Ertz) (BASG)
