Golden Nuggets: Let's Get This Combine Started

I suppose it's a good thing that at least some experts are predicting good things regarding the labor negotiations. I saw smileyman's post yesterday and my cynical side forgot itself for a moment. It sure would be nice if this thing can be settled sooner rather than later, but I'm sticking to my guns and proceeding as though we won't have any NFL football in 2011. It's, as noted, a cynical position, but it's not one I enjoy being fixated on. The good news is that the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine begins today, and I couldn't be more excited. I don't know why I get so excited for it, as I don't really like things that the media tends to get excited about, but for some reason I cannot help but be totally addicted to watching the combine every year. Of course, we won't start watching it until tomorrow, but you know. I think we've got some solid 49ers links for you today, so let's get to it.

What will the 49ers be looking for at the combine? My guess is they will be heavily scouting outside linebackers and cornerbacks above all, the combine doesn't really seem like a place where you do the most homework on quarterbacks. (

How about a rundown of ten players the 49ers will be taking a long look at at the combine? (

Want to know more about Geep Chryst? Well, I did - so I read this, and you should too. I like that Harbaugh is surrounding himself with familiarity, I think that will end up being a very good thing. Side note, I think Branch's blog is my favorite these days. (

49ers Show More Character On Twitter .... Seriously, I wasn't going to link this, but I implore every one of you to read the comment from mitchell on that article ... that is how NOT to make a comment. Seriously. I can't stop laughing. (
