The off-season sentiment seems as though Kyle Williams may be the odd man out- not out of spite, but because of the deep WR talent on the roster.
But when it comes to a backup PR, I think he's still solid. He catches the ball very clean and with confidence. The two turnovers were a flukey bounce and a strip during the run.
As a receiver, Kyle Williams has been a breath of fresh air and explosiveness to a receiving core which has been lacking both for a decade. Josh Morgan was solid, but he was never the homerun threat that Williams is.
Moss and Ted Ginn Jr. will likely not return for 2013.
Williams has much better hands, is quicker and way faster than Morgan ever was—but he's a lot smaller.
So that leaves Michael Crabtree, A.J. Jenkins and Manningham (if the 49ers pick up his contract again) on the 2013 squad. What was once a deep position will get thin very quickly.
I guess I just like Kyle Williams and would hate to see him become a threatening slot receiver on an offensive juggernaut like New Orleans, New England or Green Bay.
