49ers roster moves: CB K’Waun Williams, RB Tevin Coleman activated; RB Jeff Wilson to IR

Oct 31, 2020 at 1:54 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers announced a series of roster moves on Saturday, among them being the designation of running back Jeff Wilson to injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain and the activations of cornerback K'Waun Williams and running back Tevin Coleman to the active roster.

The 49ers also added wide receiver River Cracraft and safety Johnathan Cyprien to the active roster from the practice squad and downgraded defensive lineman Kentavius Street (illness) from questionable to doubtful for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Wide receiver Richie James (ankle) and safety Jaquiski Tartt (groin) were also downgraded from doubtful to out.

Wilson (6-0, 213) suffered his injury in the third quarter of the 49ers' 33-6 road win against the New England Patriots on October 25. Wilson, who drew a start in place of the injured Raheem Mostert (knee), was having a career game with 112 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries before his injury. He was named the NFL's FedEx Ground Player of the Week for his performance.

Coleman (6-1, 210) has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury in the 49ers' 31-13 win over the New York Jets on September 20, while Williams has been out since injuring his knee in a 25-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on October 4. Coleman's return to the roster will provide a much-needed boost to a 49ers running back room that is without starter Raheem Mostert (ankle) in addition to Wilson, while Williams will return to his role as the nickel back on defense.

Cracraft (6-0, 198) has been a part of the 49ers' practice squad this season after spending the first three years of his NFL career with the Denver Broncos. He has one career catch for 44 yards, 12 career punt returns for 40 yards, and three career kick returns for 43 yards.

Cyprien (6-1, 211) made his 49ers debut in the team's 33-6 win over the New England Patriots on October 25. Now in his eighth NFL season, Cyprien has 515 career tackles, two interceptions, and 16 passes defensed in 76 total games with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, and 49ers.

Here's a look at the updated injury situation for the 49ers (4-3) and Seahawks (5-1) heading into Sunday's game (4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT). The Seahawks also announced a series of roster moves Saturday, activating former 49ers defensive back D.J. Reed (hamstring) as well as rookie tight end Colby Parkinson (foot) from the non-football injury list while elevating defensive end/tight end Stephen Sullivan and cornerback Jayson Stanley from the practice squad to the active roster.

Mock Draft Roundup: The Mac Jones-to-49ers Chatter is Deafening

By Justin Wong
Apr 7, 2021

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.

Why the 49ers should not draft Mac Jones at No. 3

Shockwaves reverberated around the NFL last month when the 49ers traded up with the Miami Dolphins to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. By giving away its first- and third-round picks in 2022, and another first-rounder in 2023, San Francisco made its mega move in upgrading the quarterback room for its foreseeable future. While the team has maintained a public stance of keeping current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this coming season, this trade signified its dissatisfaction with Garoppolo's services, as the 49ers are expected to select his successor with their third overall pick in the draft at the end of this month. Most predict that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets, who hold the first and second overall picks in this year's draft,

When Jimmy Garappolo arrived in San Francisco in a trade from the New England Patriots in 2017, he was a young, athletic, and skilled quarterback. However, a couple of season-ending injuries later, his value has plummeted. The perception of the quarterback is that of an older, immobile, and inaccurate passer who often makes questionable decisions. Garoppolo's injury-riddled stint with the Niners has caused the entire team to suffer due to below-average backup play leading to mostly disappointing results. After head coach Kyle Shanahan's third losing season in four years, he has set his mind on using the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to select a durable franchise quarterback who can execute his offensive playbook effectively and has the athletic skill set to lead a

Why the 49ers made the move to No. 3

Patrick Mahomes. Jared Goff. Carson Wentz. Cam Newton. Russell Wilson. What do these names have in common? Well, all of these quarterbacks were first-string quarterbacks on Super Bowl teams (Wentz was injured, but was QB1 on the Eagles). Most importantly, they were all on their rookie contracts during the year their teams made the Super Bowl. On March 26, the San Fransisco 49ers sent a boatload of picks: the No. 12 pick, their next two first-rounders, AND a third-round compensatory selection in 2022 for the No. 3 pick this year. Given the magnitude of the trade and the amount the 49ers gave up, many were questioning whether the trade up to presumably grab a quarterback was worth it for the franchise.
