"I’m telling you right now: If we don’t get him, I’ll be sick. I will be contemplating Joe Williams all night.” -Kyle Shanahan
That was the quote heard ‘round the world of NFL Draft Twitter thanks to access granted by the San Francisco 49ers to Peter King of Sports Illustrated. The draft process of first time general manager John Lynch and first time head coach Kyle Shanahan was chronicled in great detail on King’s MMQB website. Reading further, we learned that Lynch had removed Williams from his draft board completely over a number of concerns, including his passion for the game during a month long absence away from football.
