The 49ers signed G Leonard Davis

Whoa, gaurd it is....LOL

Oh snap! Boone, dude, is only 300 so back to T you go if Davis plays to form. So much for zone-blocking for the WCO. LOL
Just a veteran insurance policy. Boone seems to have the RG spot all but locked up. Only way I see Davis make the 53-man roster is if Kilgore and Looney both falter as backup options to Boone.
I'm glad we signed him, but this whole RG thing has taken on a life of its own.

RG timeline:
1) We draft Kilgore.
2) Chilo is horrible, so Snyder steps in.
3) Snyder signs with the Cardinals.
4) We work out Leonard Davis.
5) We draft Looney and Slowey.
6) We move Boone to RG.
7) Looney is still recovering from an injury.
8) Slowey is mostly practicing at center.
9) We sign Leonard Davis.

Next is training camp, where hopefully, we can get this mystery at RG sorted out.

one of the rookies is not looking good IMO

Well we were never exclusively a zone blocking team. I remember reading an article where Drevno and Solari talked about this.

... or Kilgore. My thought is that Looney is further away from playing than anticipated.
Our Oline is starting to look like Dallas in the early 90s, at least on the scale. Lets just hope they can play half as good...
LD plays bass in a band too. Him and Staley will be fast friends with Joe's love of singing and performing.

i like the move. its a safe but sexy signing.

just wanted to post that because if you say it, youre saying 'buttsecks' tee hee
As Davis said, in the Niner's run-oriented offense, he'll be a good fit. He's a huge guy...strong and should be effective opening holes for Gore, Hunter, James & Jacobs. If nothing else, he's insurance in case Boone doesn't cut it or Harbaugh/Roman want to use him more as the swing OT, which he's better suited for. Never hurts to have an experienced vet on the squad.
No lose situation. Good signing.

I pray we aren't drafting more interior guys next year
I wouldn't be suprised to see a Staley-Iupati-Goodwin-L.Davis-Boone-A.Davis power running formation.
I think this has more to do with putting in 6 and 7 linemen in the game. If you go C Goodwin, RG Boone, RT Davis, and then put L. Davis and V. Davis on the wing.....

Woah.
i can hear it now "holding davis right side of the line . but the penalties offset cause the defense jumped in fear still 1st down"
