Golden Nuggets: Hopefully we can make it to the NFL Draft

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday, April 20, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

You know the stereotypical billboards/signs that say "Accident Free For X Days" -- where "X" is the number of days? This offseason, I feel like we've essentially had one of those up here at Niners Nation, or more accurately down at San Francisco 49ers headquarters in Santa Clara.

Fortunately, it seems like we can turn it to three or maybe even four days at this point. I have a tendency to lose track of time when all of this crazy stuff is going on. Whatever the case, I'm just hoping we make it to the 2014 NFL Draft without anymore headlines. Of course, we have Aldon Smith's court date coming up, but hopefully that will go well.

Onto the links and such.
