Golden Nuggets: Wake me up when the draft is here

Sunday, April 12, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning folks. Offseason workouts are a thing, but there's not necessarily a ton of San Francisco 49ers news coming out of them. I suppose that's a good thing, once again, given the offseason we've had thus far. I wonder if this past offseason can be regarded as among the worst the franchise has ever seen, and yet, I'm still oddly confident in the 49ers this season.

That's probably a weird thing to say, given I'm a well-known pessimist, but there are several players on this team I really think can make a difference if they take the next step in their development. Obviously, most of it hinges on Colin Kaepernick bouncing back and having a strong season, given his struggles last season. But I really like the signing of Torrey Smith and think that will help a lot.

Anyway, I'm ranting and stalling because there's really not that many new links for ya'll today. Here they are, though:
