With the loss of Adam Snyder and Chilo Rachal, the right guard position is ripe for the taking. Entering his second year in the NFL, Daniel Kilgore could easily snatch up the starting job.
San Francisco drafted two offensive linemen with Joe Looney in the fourth round and Jason Slowey in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. It would be too shaky to start a rookie on the offensive line that was drafted past the third round this early on. The rookie linemen are still not quite ready to be counted on to protect the quarterback just yet.
Kilgore on the other hand could fill the void at right guard nicely.
The fifth-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft only appeared in one game last season, but since Kilgore has one year under his belt he is the best option at the moment. At age 24 he is currently the second oldest guard on the roster right behind Mike Iupati. The experience from watching the game last season should give him a leg up on his younger competition.
