Golden Nuggets: Lawrence Okoye panning out would be awesome

Jason O. Watson

Saturday, May 11, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning folks. We've got a lot of links today thanks to the rookie minicamp. There's actually a surprising amount of information coming out of the minicamp. Each year, it seems like we get more and more access to that kind of thing, and of course, that's primarily due to Twitter and this really cool, neat thing called the Internet.

I'm glad we're seeing some good things about Lawrence Okoye and Quinton Patton. It would just be great if Okoye panned out and picked up the NFL relatively quickly. The 49ers' success doesn't depend on it by any means, but there's an awful lot of physical talent that could be put to good use.

Anyway, onto those links.
