Introducing Kilgore to the 49ers

We're now 49er fansStart with the name.

A name like Kilgore could represent several things; a rating system for zombie movies, a nickname cops use to identify a bad homicide, a name of a man eating shark, or giant black bear. If you add the name Daniel to Kilgore, you get a bear sized offensive lineman. Daniel Kilgore standing 6 foot 3 inches, weighing in at 308 lbs, reaching 32 ½ inches with his arms, and pushing with his 10 inch hands, makes up a giant who anchored the line at Appalachian State, and allowed only eight sacks in 13 games.

Well, he wasn’t quite that bit at App. But just wait till he gets on the Jason Hunter diet!

What’s the odds for some rookie PT?

In conclusion, the 49ers needed to continue bolstering the offensive line. Daniel Kilgore will possibly make contributions backing up the line, but don’t expect him to fill the missing piece this year. The upside is that his weaknesses are coachable, and with enough work shows signs of being a solid contributor.

    I'm so proud of our guys. We have an exceptional program going and having three guys taken in the draft is one hell of a recruiting tool…."come to app and you have a real shot at the NFL if you are the kind of guy that will work for it"

    Former App State recruit QB Lorenzo Hammonds who ended up going to FIU (Scott Satterfield), and they had how many draft picks, has to be wondering about that decision. Satterfield recruited him because he's very similar to AE.
