Golden Nuggets: No News is Still Good News

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Monday, June 2, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

There is still our normal dearth of news stories at this time of year, but as we've seen from the past couple of months, no news is definitely better as the team goes through with optional team activities. No news of injuries and no news of extra-curricular shenanigans are always welcome.

What we do have are individual stories on Brandon Lloyd and Vance McDonald and what we can expect from them. Vance is pretty much a lock to make the 53-man roster at TE2, while Lloyd is a big toss up, but I would not be surprised to see him hang on as the 5th or even 6th WR. So far we are hearing positive things from the team about him, but that is to be expected especially in the pre-season when everybody still has a chance to make the team.

NFL.com is also doing their top 100 players, and 49ers.com has some photos from the just concluded Rookie Camp. I threw in a couple of stories which are not exactly about the team, but it does mention the team so it's up to you whether you want to go there or not. On to the links!
