Consensus emerging for the 49ers in mock NFL Drafts

Draft analysts have begun to agree on who the 49ers should select with No. 2 pick in April’s NFL Draft. The NFL Scouting Combine begins in less than a week on February 26.

As inevitable change approaches, draft pundits have begun to find common ground on where general manager John Lynch may go with the 49ers’ No. 2 overall pick. For years, Niners Nation has been compiling mock drafts and the first-round picks chosen by analysts for San Francisco. The 49ers’...

Golden Nuggets: The Combine Approaches

Dante Pettis offered comment shortly after getting his wisdom teeth yanked

Dante Pettis offered comment shortly after getting his wisdom teeth yanked

I don’t want anything to do with this. I’ve managed to avoid getting my wisdom teeth pulled in my first 39 years of life, and I really have no interest in having it happen any time in the future. On Wednesday, I got to see one more reason I’ll try and avoid it. 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis had to get his wisdom teeth pulled, and we got a picture of him after the procedure, and them some video of him attempting to talk. You can view both in the Instagram post below (click the arrow on the right to switch to the video). On one dentist visit, they said they could pull my wisdom teeth...
