Good morning everyone, Ninjames here. Day two of the NFL Draft is under wraps and the 49ers have two more players to add to their previous two first rounders, Mike Iupati and Anthony Davis. I was pretty pumped today, got to watch it from my house instead of being at the draft party and participate in the threads here and argue constantly. Was a fun time. Either way, we've got a lot of hits and things like that and I hope all of you new readers are as excited as I am. The 49ers have made three excellent selections and one that should be pretty solid. That, along with the Ted Ginn trade have to make Trent Baalke pretty successful thusfar, right? I'm OK with not pursuing another GM for the foreseeable future unless some huge name becomes available. Let's get to your links, folks.
