Thread: Draft Recap

    Will John Lynch argue to keep Joe Williams off the roster?

    The price the 49ers have paid with all of their transparency is that we all know Shanahan and Lynch disagreed on Williams hours before he was selected. Peter King chronicled San Francisco's draft efforts back in April and we learned Shanahan pressured Lynch to put Williams back on the draft board, where he eventually drafted the Utah running back.

    "Screw it," Lynch said to himself Saturday morning, via King. "I'm going to try to jump up and get this guy."

    Four months later, the topic of Williams could become the first heated battle between a head coach and general manager who have been singing out of the same hymnal since their hiring in February.

    If Williams was the undrafted signee and Matt Breida was the fourth-round pick, the 49ers would be releasing Williams this weekend -- without question.

    Outside of a couple of flashes in practice and the preseason, Williams has been lagging behind. Breida was deemed so important, he didn't play in the preseason finale. Some 49ers assistant coaches were aware of how this storyline would play out way back in May.

    Williams injured his ankle during Thursday's preseason finale against the Chargers, Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.
    Prior to his early exit, Williams gained 53 yards on 10 carries but also lost a fumble. He struggled with ball security in college and again during training camp, perhaps thwarting his own bid for a significant role in the San Francisco backfield. With Tim Hightower also failing to impress this preseason, undrafted rookie Matt Breida has a shot to open the season as Carlos Hyde's top backup.

    Does anyone know if Ironhead got cut? He tweeted something earlier like "thankful for the opportunity," wasn't sure if we could read anything into that or not.

    Dang hate to hear that about Ironhead. Cuts are not done yet, they will continue through the weekend. Which also means someone else can pick him up.

    Cuts have to be done by end of Saturday. 49er's cut Hightower(RB). Looks like Matt is 49er's #2 RB! YES!!!

    I hope a team picks up Ironhead he's worth it to add depth for the safety position
