Golden Nuggets: Countdown NFL Draft

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Monday, May 5, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

WIth the 2014 NFL Draft just a few days away, the focus is on last-minute looks at what the team still needs and what the team may possibly do this coming May 8–10. We know the potential needs like CB, WR, interior lineman, PR/KR, and possibly back-up RB, ILB, maybe even a safety of the future. The truth is no one, not even the GMs themselves know how things will shake out in the Draft and that's what makes it exciting. It's a minute-by-minute adjustment, and no matter how much research has been done, sometimes they will just trust their gut. So here's looking ahead to the upcoming members of the San Francisco 49ers.
