Wednesday, March 27, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

The defender remind me of how I used to watch Saturday morning cartoons. Oh, and Kyle Williams is back!

There aren't a ton of links, but hey, there are some good ones. I've had internet problems so I'm skipping the intro so I can spend more time on the links. I hope you don't mind.

The big news from the day is Kyle Williams has been running. It's a great first step, no pun intended, toward a full recovery. He was always expected to be ready and rearing by camp. Mario Manningham, on the other hand, still appears to be in for a slow return. | Williams back on the run after ACL tear (Inman)

For those of you who want to see the 49ers use some of these 2013 picks to stock up for the highly anticipated 2014 draft, Mike Sando has just the piece. He details how the team swapped two 2012 picks for two later picks, plus three 2013 picks. Can we expect some more of the same magic this year? | Taking stock: Two picks that became five (Sando)

A lot of the faithful have been hinting that Jonathan Goodwin should / could be the next one cut for salary cap reasons. Is Daniel Kilgore or someone else ready to take his position? BASG provides a dissenting opinion and offers reasons why Goodwin should be kept around. | A defense of Jonathan Goodwin (and his cap number) (BASG)

Matt Maiocco breaks down the 49ers' cornerback position and includes some info on Nnamdi Asomugha for the sake of conversation. Opposing QBs had a 120.6 passer rating when targeting him in coverage last year. How do you feel about him now? | The potential competition at cornerback (Maiocco)

Matt Barrows has a story on the 2012 draft class and how they're looking forward to contributing this coming season. What that means to me is that they basically did nothing last year. Some were injured, some had a positive impact and some had one drop in one target. | The belated: 2012 draft class eager to make its mark in 2013 (Barrows)

Some people want us to trade higher up into the first round. It's not out of the question with all of our picks. It takes two to trade, says Sando. | Takes two to trade, but ammunition there (Sando)
