Golden Nuggets: The draft approaches

Sunday, March 26th, 2017 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone. Free agency has basically wrapped up and the hype for the NFL Draft will begin to build. For the San Francisco 49ers, I feel like they’re in a great position to make a serious difference with the second pick ... but we have no idea how John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan conduct their draft.

As much as it is a great opportunity for success, it’s an amazing opportunity to fail. Predicting either at this point is kind of silly given that there could not be a bigger question mark than Lynch at this point. But it’s a little scary, isn’t it? I wonder what the ratio will be the day before the draft of folks on this site ... between anxious excitement and sheer, unbridled terror.

I’m going with the terror, but that’s just because it’s what’s expected of me. Let’s get on to your links for the day, of which there only a few.
