Golden Nuggets: The Calm Before the Storm

This is the only photo we have on file of Brian Jennings. Enjoy! - Leon Halip

Sunday, April 21, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

This is it, folks. Draft week is upon us. Now the coverage will really ramp up. We'll be going nuts here at the site, the Nuggets will be full and rumors will swirl like the caramel in the ice cream I'm going to eat for dessert tonight. Until then, there's nothing to report. Today is the slowest of slow news days.

In lieu of news, I'll put my two cents in. Isn't it great that Trent Baalke has amassed such a treasure trove of draft picks that it makes the draft that much more exciting for us? Imagine being a Seahawks fan. You'd be thinking, what does winning a title feel like, and I hope Percy Harvin doesn't get a headache this year. 49ers fans, on the other hand, are in for a treat. Baalke can make anything and everything happen with the amount of picks we have. Usually, drafting at No. 31 would put you in for a long wait and a generally uneventful draft. We know a trade could happen at any time, so grab some popcorn and settle in.
