My trust is with Baalke and Harbaugh. Most teams have turnover, look at the niners turnover last year. If RG is the only spot, they can get a guard in FA and draft one. I simply think that beyond De Castro and Konz, you are not getting value at pick 30. Any other pick preferably pick 3 down, would be better. Just my opinion, which is worthless, but I think Kilgore should be given the opportunity.
Well, you have some points, but many are flawed, in many of the cases that you stated above, they were replaced by people who had some playing experience, including Bowman, he logged some time but it was too much for him and Takeo got his job back as a starter. Remember, Chilo was impressive in camp and had experience but ended up losing to Snyder.
Point is shouldn't go to camp with the expectation that Kilgore is a lock, even if he looks good in camp. ESPECIALLY since they have no good backup at either guard or center. The backup for center IS Kilgore.
