Golden Nuggets: Draftsmas Eve Edition

Jed York delivers the severed head that Harbaalke requested. - Ezra Shaw

Thursday, April 24, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Rumors are flying, people are getting antsy and all I can see is a bunch of 49ers fans fidgeting like children on Christmas Eve. Everybody wants to know what they'll be getting tomorrow. Baalke Claus is a coming, he's got butt-tons of picks and something fun is about to happen. What could it be? We're moving up for sure, say some. But who would we be targeting? Oh, to be a fly on the wall of the war room tomorrow.

On to the links, because I'm running behind. To my surprise, there are not that many. That'll all change shortly.

There's a name a lot of people are talking about. Tyrann Mathieu, aka Honey Badger, he of the 10+ failed drug tests in college, is seen by many to be a top talent who fell on weed-addled times and wants to make amends, thus becoming a steal at anywhere past the 2nd round to his supporters. BASG has his take on the situation. | Tyrann Mathieu's draft crush: The San Francisco 49ers (BASG)

It's no surprise that we're one of the teams in the following article. So many picks means we can be a player in many different ways...in whatever way we choose, honestly. Let's see what unfolds. | Five teams to watch at NFL draft (Fox Sports)
