Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ward had surgery to repair a Jones fracture in his right foot this past March. With the season being months away, the 49ers are taking a cautious approach with their first-round pick and allowing him to rest his foot past the recommended recovery time. The team has said that Ward will be ready to go by the time training camp begins.
Ward, the 30th overall pick in May's NFL Draft, signed a four-year contract with the 49ers on Thursday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ward is recovering from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot, but he should be healthy in time for training camp. With the Niners already carrying 2013 first-round pick Eric Reid and veteran Antonie Bethea, Ward probably won't be handed a starting job at safety. San Francisco could opt to use more three-safety formations, or perhaps let Ward and Bethea duke it out for a starting job.
The 49ers selected Ward in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, 30th overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ward is a fine safety prospect, showing a skill set fairly similar to that of Jairus Byrd, but this is an odd selection since the 49ers already have Eric Reid and Antoine Bethea around. Perhaps the 49ers will attempt to regularly feature three-safety formations this year. Ward will provide a boost to San Francisco's coverage when he's on the field.
Ward, a safety from Northern Illinois, will undergo surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot, Chicago Tribune writer Brad Biggs reports. The surgery will require a 6-to-8 week recovery.
