Golden Nuggets: The NFL Draft approaches

Sunday, April 16th, 2017 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone. Things are getting a little slow for the San Francisco 49ers, but we’re not at all far from the NFL Draft so things are going to pick up very quickly. I’m actually very far behind on workouts and what not, which is why I haven’t posted any kind of mock draft or anything like that.

There’s an interesting bit from Pierre Garcon talking about Scot McCloughan, who was fired from Washington. Apparently, McCloughan was told that all the players disliked him. It’s been a long while since McCloughan was with the 49ers but I personally find that hard to believe just going by what I know of his time in San Francisco.

Anyway, it doesn’t affect the 49ers or Garcon in any way, but it’s an interesting story, at the very least. Onto your links for the day.
