We still do not know for sure what the coaches think of Kilgore after a full season of practice. If they move to get a guard, it will tell us they do not see Kilgore as the future. If they ignore that spot with the next two picks, then we will know they like Kilgore. Konz will cloud the issue as he might be seen as the future replacement for Goodwin.
Gonna be a fun afternoon.
If the team drafts a guard, that would mean Kilgore would potentially become the center of the future and depth on the interior for the time being. There is very little depth on the inside of the line so picking an interior lineman early would not be a bad idea. If they don't draft an interior lineman then we can assume they are happy with Person, Kilgore, Beeler, etc. or they feel they can get a better player in free agency to hold them over for a year.
No matter what happens, I don't think it's a slight to Kilgore if the team trades up to get Silatolu, Konz, Brooks, Glenn, or any other lineman.
