49ers' Vance McDonald: Was on trade block
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers tried to trade McDonald (shoulder) during the draft, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

It was rumored that the New 49ers regime was looking to trade McDonald and that has now been confirmed. The tight end had the best season of his four-year career in 2016, recording career highs in yards (391) and touchdowns (4) despite only playing in 11 games. If he's still with the team when the regular season begins, he'll likely the be the No. 1 tight end options.

49ers' Carlos Hyde: May have to fend off rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyde (knee) could face competition from Joe Williams for the starting job, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

A holdover from the previous 49ers regime, Hyde produced 4.6 yards per carry last season to bring his career clip up to 4.3, but a trio of missed games leaves him with 14 absences through three years as he prepares for the final season of his rookie contract. With nothing to suggest the two sides are discussing an extension, the rebuilding 49ers could favor Williams -- who was drafted in the fourth round at No. 121 overall -- if he appears capable of matching or approaching Hyde's usual production. The 235-pound veteran has a clear advantage in terms of size and power, but Williams is still solidly built at 5-foot-10, 210 pounds -- and he ran a 4.41 40-yard dash at the combine. Hyde should make a full recovery from last season's torn MCL before training camp.

49ers' Joe Williams: Could unseat Hyde before Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams could have a chance to unseat Carlos Hyde (knee) from the lead role before Week 1, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

New head coach Kyle Shanahan made a strong push convincing the San Francisco front office to draft Williams, who was ultimately selected in the fourth round at No. 121 overall. General manager John Lynch initially planed to avoid the Utah product, but Lynch changed his mind when he learned that Williams' brief retirement from football during his senior season at Utah was motivated by the running back's need to deal with grief from his sister's death. Williams rejoined the team after a month-long absence and proceeded to run for 1,332 yards and 10 touchdowns in only seven games, producing at a clip of 7.1 yards per carry. He then ran a 4.41 40-yard dash at 5-foot-11, 210 pounds at the Combine, where he also had strong marks in the broad jump (125 inches) and 20-yard shuttle (4.19 seconds). Meanwhile, the oft-injured Hyde is entering the final season of his rookie contract, having missed 14 of a possible 48 games through three years. Hyde has mostly done strong work as an early-down runner when he's been healthy, but the rebuilding 49ers may still prioritize Williams' development if both players prove to be deserving of roles. Offseason addition Tim Hightower also figures to take on some snaps -- particularly on passing downs -- as Williams only caught nine passes during his senior season, and Hyde has never been much of a receiving threat.
