Golden Nuggets: Happy 4th of July!

San Francisco 49ers links for July 4, 2016.

Good morning all! The 4th of July is upon us, and hopefully everybody has plenty planned. And if no plans, a little relaxing to close out the holiday weekend. Whatever your plans are later today, don’t forget to watch the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. The women’s contest gets going on ESPN at 7:50 a.m. PT, and the men’s contest follows at 9 a.m. PT.

It’s been a pretty quiet weekend, and I would say thankfully. There’s not a lot of content from the 49ers beat writers, but Chris Biderman continued his ranking of the top 25 49ers players. He started at 25 and is counting down to 1, based on production at their position, physical attributes, upside and expected impact in 2016. The latest player is Antoine Bethea at No. 9. I’m guessing we’ll see Joe Staley, Eric Reid, NaVorro Bowman, Carlos Hyde, Aaron Lynch, Jimmie Ward, and Quinton Dial, in the top eight. That leaves one more. Maybe Ian Williams? We’ll see. Here are his players 9 through 25, with links to the articles.

9. Antoine Bethea
10. DE Arik Armstead
11. WR Torrey Smith
12. OG Joshua Garnett
13. C Daniel Kilgore
14. S Jaquiski Tartt
