Good morning folks. We're just a couple days away from the 2015 NFL Draft, which means I'm filled with both excitement and dread. Excitement because I might get a three-day stretch in which I'm writing about actual, factual football and not the steaming pile of inhuman garbage that has been this NFL offseason (I'm not even talking about the San Francisco 49ers here) and dread because, for some reason, I signed up for double shifts throughout the entire draft. So that will be fun.
I'm strangely optimistic about where the 49ers will go, though. I'm confident that the 49ers can find someone good among the positions of need, though I guess I was pretty confident in 2012's wide receiver class as well and that didn't go particularly well, did it? Whatever the case, I'm more intrigued than anything by what the 49ers will look like next season. I'm fully prepared to be pessimistic once things get going but they'll be interesting at the very least, right?
