Golden Nuggets: NFL Offseason Blues

Good morning everyone. We had a slow day at Niners Nation yesterday, mostly because I got back to Fooch late regarding a couple posts and was away for most of the day taking care of some things. Should have a full slate of posts today for you good folks, though I'm presently unsure of that. Sometimes it's hard to write about the 49ers during the offseason, especially one such as this where there's so much uncertainty regarding the future of the league and where they've changed a rule that has made me significantly less interested. Fortunately, the 49ers don't have much of a return game as far as explosiveness and threat-of-scoring is concerned. Doesn't make it much better, in my opinion. Let's get to the few links I have, though I will probably be a little rushed. Enjoy.

Nose tackle prospect Phil Taylor is set to meet with the 49ers. I don't see him as an option at the seventh pick, but he's one of the few guys I would be alright with the 49ers trading back a little bit for, and also a guy I could see the 49ers trading back into the first round for. One caveat to that thought is the fact that the Niners don't need to go out of their way to get a nose tackle, this draft has a few great prospects at that position that could be around anywhere from rounds two-to-four. The only problem with that logic is the definite possibility that there are a run of those guys at some point, as soon as the teams feel like they're about to go. (

If you missed it yesterday, here's a quick look at the draft prospects the 49ers are known to have worked out or are going to be working out in the near future. (
