The San Francisco 49ers have reached an agreement on a deal with fourth-round running back Joe Williams according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today.

Williams is the first player from the 2017 draft class to reportedly reach a deal with the team that selected them.

Williams was the 121st overall selection in the draft last weekend. He rushed for 1,407 yards and 10 touchdowns for Utah last season in just nine games for the Utes. Williams veraged 99.2 yards rushing in his career and isĀ  Utah’s career-leader for single-game rushing yards (332) and single-season rushing average (156.3). He also had eight 100-yard rushing games in 19 total career games played.

One down. 252 more to go.

    That uniform is actually pretty cool. Not NFL cool, but like a college cool. Because it’s college.

    As a Utah fan I was surprised he went that early however he has some real explosiveness and I believe he had the 2nd fastest 40 out of RBs at the combine.

    Makes sense he’d sign first, he already retired from football once

    Look for him to take over the starting job this year. Word is the new regime does not like Hyde

    He is a real interesting story and on a human Level we are rooting for him, but lets hold off on saying he is better than Dalvin Cook.
