Golden Nuggets: Meet the newest batch of 49ers rookies!

Good morning everyone. The NFL Draft is officially a thing of the past and aside for one or two questionable moves, it looks as though San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch passed his first test with flying colors.

Many will try and claim that Lynch simply delegated a lot and that he can’t take credit. Some have suggested Paraag Marathe is behind it all and that he walked all over Lynch. Not only do I think those people are wrong, I think it’s a whole lot to try and prove when there is, in fact, no evidence supporting the claims.

I don’t know if these picks will pan out. I don’t know if the C.J. Beathard pick was a bad move from top to bottom. But I like what they did on Day 1 and the start of Day 2, and in the NFL that is huge. Absolutely huge.

Let’s get on to your links.
