Golden Nuggets: Trent Baalke’s Sorting Hat

Tuesday, April 29, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.


With the 2014 NFL Draft less than two weeks away, 49ers GM Trent Baalke gives a little insight into how he views the draft. Of course, he still keeps his cards close, but he reveals a bit on how he evaluates wide receivers. It's especially interesting since the 49ers have not done really well drafting receivers of late (with Michael Crabtree being the lone exception). There's also continued speculation on whether Baalke will decide to move up again in the draft and how far he is willing to go. It will most likely depend on who is available at the particular time in the draft. Also of note is an article on Crabtree's extension and Brandon Lloyd's long shot to make the team. We still have a while to go before pre-season games will be played so at this point anything is possible.
