After Trent Williams was acquired by the 49ers in April, the left tackle made it clear that San Francisco was his "preferred destination." Despite starting all but one of the 120 career games he's appeared in, Williams hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2013, and didn't see a single snap in 2019.
