Do we already have the answer for our safety problem?

At 6'3 220lbs CB Jimmy Williams whom describes himself as a livewire and a crowd pleaser, could be the perfect fit for either safety position. He played CB while he was with Virginia Tech and also played CB for the Falcons after being drafted in 2006. While on the Falcons he started in 5 games with a recorded 24 tackles, but it was followed by a five-game suspension by commissioner Roger Goodell for off the field behavior in his second year. After the incident, the Falcons decided to release Williams in June of 2008. With the acception of his past mistakes I have faith in Williams. I feel he will be a great addition to the 49ers and will turn out to be a probowl caliber safety "or CB" in years to come.

For the past couple days at mini-camp he has been learning more about the safety positions while getting a lot of playing time also.

“We have some great competition at strong and free safety and right now Jimmy’s in the mix with all those guys,” 49ers defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said after the team’s most recent minicamp. “He’s a big-framed guy who has an ability to cover the middle of the field and can play man-to-man on tight ends and he can hit you. He’s trying to learn the system and he’s getting better and better at understanding it.”

 

Until training camp gets underway, Williams will be concentrating on keeping his playing weight around 220 pounds on tightening up his knowledge of the playbook.

 

 


"I still have that flamboyant personality," Williams said. "I’m still kind of a livewire player. I bring the intensity as far as hitting and I show a lot of emotion and enthusiasm. I’m a crowd pleaser if anything. That’s what you’re going to get out of me. I’m trying to get the crowd into it as much as possible. I’m just going to bring some excitement as far as making plays, celebrating with guys and just being a crowd pleaser."
