Former Notre Dame defensive lineman Ian Williams was SI.com draft analyst Tony Pauline's No. 1-rated undrafted prospect entering the rookie free agent signing period Monday night.
On Monday evening, Williams informed PFT that he will sign with the San Francisco 49ers.
A 6-foot-1, 319-pound nose tackle, Williams was not selected in April's draft due to medical concerns. Williams missed four games with a knee injury as a senior, although he returned to play in the Sun Bowl against the Miami Hurricanes. He was also a full participant at February's Scouting Combine.
Quick Take: San Francisco picking up both Ian Williams and Sealver Siliga really does lessen the pain of them reaching for two offensive linemen in the draft. Williams is going to be part of their rotation in 2011 and translates well to be a future starting NT in the NFL. That was an absolute steal.
Joe, Im not really that high on Ian, but Ive been wrong before...actually MANY times before
