Golden Nuggets: Let's get this draft class on the field

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the web.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

It feels like it's been forever since I've done the Golden Nuggets, given my 10-day vacation and the NFL Draft. Let me just say how absolutely stoked I am for the San Francisco 49ers' draft class. Eric Reid wasn't the safety that I wanted most but I think he'll step right into the starting role and perform admirably.

Then, there are the defensive players that were brought in. If Corey Lemonier can replicate the success of Ahmad Brooks without all of the offside and encroachment penalties, then I'll be incredibly happy with this class. Marcus Lattimore working out would be nice too, ya know.

Anyway, onto the quick links for the day.
