What's the deal with Ian Williams?

Could be an Alex Boone type move.

I'm confident in Baalke and our coaching staff to develop talent.
I think what the deal is Harbaalke wants to stay the course and continue developing their good young players. I know this doesn't excite anyone like a Harvin going to Seabags (good luck with that headache), but that's what Trent does. Wait for the 1st wave of overreaction FA acquisitions and then make wise, prudent FA moves. If we draft say,Tavon Austin, he'll be as good as Harvin minus the migraines. The point being 9ers don't normally ask out the first, smokin' hot babe they see while speed-dating cuz they think they're gonna get some.
Wasn't Williams inactive for every game last year (or at least most if them)?
with Williams and Boldin moves our draft needs change somewhat

I don't think so. I still see us drafting D-line and WR early.

Let's hope so! If he can hold his own, we have more draft flexibility. Still need some D-lineman, but maybe not as early, possibly a project.

still need a young WR that can play now.....DL can wait a bit

D Line and D Backs early. I suspect only an early receiver (round 1-3) if a good, tall player drops down lower than expected.
If we re-sign Soap or get a new FA NT starter he would basically take the RJF role.

Had 3 snaps @ Jets week 4.... 12 snaps @ Seattle week 16 and then 17 snaps @ AZ in week 17.

( bottom line is, the coaches see him every week in practice... guess they are liking his progression )

I don't think the Williams extension means he's considered the starter t NT. I hope he's ready for that, but I don't want to assume that's the case.
Gotta admit that I didn't see this coming. I fully expected him to be released or cut. But in JH I trust. Obviously he's done good things in practice that warrants this contract. So they have to see him as someone who can compete for the starting NT job. One thing is for sure: this changes my mock draft. I had us picking John Jenkins in the first. I still think we're gonna get a NT, but not before the 3rd round.
Sopoaga and RJF are gone. So you will see more of him now for better or worse.
I'd have him, draft Jessie Williams, and bring in Sammie lee hill or Garay. Garay can lay all 3 positions. NT as a need can/will be a done deal.

This post was both astute and hilarious. Two thumbs up.
