49ers traded up to select Utah RB Joe Williams with the No. 121 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
Williams (5’11/210) committed to UConn out of high school only to get kicked off the team for credit card theft, spend two years at "ASA College" in Brooklyn, and finish up at Utah for his junior and senior years. Williams temporarily retired last September, but returned in October and posted a sparkling 210/1,407/10 (6.7 YPC) rushing line. After bouncing around colleges, Williams will be a 24-year-old rookie. He also caught only 20 passes in 19 games at Utah, dropping 5-of-27 catchable targets and fumbling seven times. Williams’ calling card is his straight-line speed (4.41). In San Francisco, first-year coach Kyle Shanahan may envision Williams as his new version of Tevin Coleman. Apr 29 - 12:58 PM
