Boone to Center in 2013?

Well I dont think he ever played guard before this season.
The dude is good. He was a 1st round talent at tackle but went undrafted because of character concerns and alcoholism.

Yes. I am aware.

Probably. Can Looney play C? Did he play C in HS or anything?

Goodwin ain't worth $5m next year when we got 13 draft picks
rather make kilgore the future center and keep boone at rg
I like Boone at RG. Davis can be a little streaky at RT and Boone compliments him well. I like having a vet out there on the right side.

If someone gets trough the middle, Gore will floor them. Briggs found out the hard way that Frank can block.

I wouldn't be mad.

Kilgore is being groomed for C right now so that would make the most sense, unless he completely sucks next year.

I also like the way Boone is playing RG right now. So it's hard to argue for him to make a move.
Not another nick bradley thread
This would be a dumb idea. Because Boone is playing great and will only get better as he plays there more. You move him and he has to learn to assimnilate another position. In addition you have to bring in another person who would be an unknown commodity at guard. On top of that Anthony Davis seems to be having his best season. Ithink that it is not only because this is his third year, but he and Boon have gelled well on that side of the line, so it would also affect a third position. Better to get a replacement through the draft or someone else if your reasoning is to let go of Goodwin because of cap space. Let Kilgore and Looney battle for it along with another draft pick.
I think they move Boone to QB to push Kap

I tend to think that we should draft a center in 2013, but doing so depends in great part on the development of Daniel Kilgore.

Right now, Kilgore is listed as the backup center. My best guess is that Harbaugh and company think he is the future at center--maybe even a true center.

Looney played center in the Senior Bowl

I believe Looney was injured (torn foot ligament) during the first Senior Bowl practice.

Personally, I'd like to see Kilgore eventually take-over at OC
