49ers agree to terms with LeRoy Vann

It's really hard to tell how his film translates to NFL play, but he certainly does take advantage of flaws in the opponents' special team discipline and play. I don't know if he survives the cuts or makes it to the team or PS, but he'll be fun to watch in preseason, particularly on punt returns (and especially if the other team outkicks its coverage).

Likely

Is his size a concern?


He's about the same size as Sproles. If you can play you can play.

He looks smaller than Sproles. Well if he can play, he can play
Oh yeah, this kid can fly...love the signing. Gotta give it up to Baalke...for his 1st draft, I thought he did a bang-up job. Addressed a lot of needs and added some much-needed speed to the KR game.

Probably because Williams is more versatile then Vann. Vann is only going to be a KR/PR likely, but Williams has value has a PR and WR.

Not really we didn't have a slot reciever and Williams ran a 4.3 at his pro day+played in the slot a lot. The only guys who are for sure even on the team at WR is Crab and Morgan.

that's cause he said when he was growing up. If he said "when i was growin up i is a 49ers fan" that'd just be down right poor grammar

i just dont see this guy getting playing time over ginn, jones, or hill..... i think ginn will become the slot WR

probably better game speed then track speed, the 40 yard dash is an art and he knew he wasnt going to get a huge contract so he probably didnt pay huge bucks to get a expensive private trainer and take off school just to train for the draft.

It was a wet track. 40 times mean little.
Just watch him on the field out-run the entire defense.

Singletary has stated explicitly that Ginn will play the X position and is not a slot receiver.
