Golden Nuggets: Meet the 2014 Gold Rush

Saturday, April 19, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

With all of the negative news about the 49ers lately, I thought it would be good to lead today's Nuggets with a slight refresher or change of pace. Sort of like when eating a multi-course meal, you throw in that sherbet just to cleanse the palate. So here's something else the state of California is known for: cheerleaders and wine. The 49ers official website wants to introduce you to this years Gold Rush. We also have a special interest story about what former Niners CEO Carmen Policy is now busy with. Plus of course, the NFL Draft, a few more on Aldon Smith's 5th year option, and some off-season notes.
