... Does this also mean 49ers will take D-Will? Sucks as im a Gore owner but Dwill sure wouldnt be as good as he could be in Indy/Denver....
Surely this will make for an interesting draft now!!
Well Gore had surgery on BOTH shoulders and isn't due to be healthy till sometime during training camp. And then check out the following.http://www.gjsentinel.com/sports/content/s...s/0206bigc.html
.... Williams' play limited
There has been some talk since the Senior Bowl about the limited action of Memphis RB DeAngelo Williams both in the game and during practice. In the game, Williams carried the ball three times for 31 yards and had two receptions for 28 yards. In practice, it wasn't so much about the limited action but the time spent actually practicing with the team. with the seventh overall pick, or was this a mere case of a coaching Williams spent a significant amount of practice time working one-on-one with one of the 49ers' coaches.
Could this be an indication that the 49ers are looking to take the nation's leading rusher staff trying to protect a blue-chip prospect from injury?
Either way, teams in need of a running back saw all they needed to see out of Williams. He showed outstanding quickness, balance and vision. Williams is a tremendous cutback runner with a good burst, but must prove that he can be an effective inside runner.
Scouts are eager to see what Williams runs in the 40 because he looked more quick than fast. According to Williams, he hasn't been timed in the 40 in about three years
Well we know how he performed in the forty.
Williams exploded into motion.
To watch him fly past two rows of scouts, at full speed, was to appreciate the violence of NFL football.
That's when the murmurs started, the scouts checking with one another to see who had what time.
Denton, with a 4.40 on his watch, was thrilled, but then other numbers started dominoeing back -- someone had a 4.36, someone else a 4.37 and the Packers scout had a 4.39.
"Bingo!" Denton said, giving a little pump of his fist.
When Williams' second run was hundredths slower, it was official -- Williams is heretofore known as a running back with 4.38 to 4.42 speed
I think the Niners would definitely jump on De'Angleo if he is available with the #22 pick in the first round.
