IMHO, if any of the 3 were to be cut, Snyder would get cut before Looney or Kilgore...

No way, Snyder is a guy who can play any position on the line at a pretty high level way too valuable to cut before those guys.

Looney is a lock for the 53 b/c of the lack of depth at OT

When did he start playing OT?

This depends on how the young guys play. If Looney and Kilgore show a lot of promise they will definitely make the team over Snyder, who is pretty much a one year rental and that is if he even makes the team. I like Snyder and all, he is a solid backup, can play all across the line and is a well respected vet amongst the O-line. I would just rather see the young guys get a chance if they prove worthy, over keeping an aging vet just because he has versatility.
Wasn't he drafted to be goodwins replacement at center

Looney will make it. IMO he is better than Kilgore. Its all about the health. As for the 2012 Draft Class, talk about a complete BOMB of a Draft?? James is the only pick who has contributed anyfreakin thing

you people make me laugh, how are you going to call it a "bomb" of a draft one year later? it take 3 years to analyze a draft. half the players didn't even play


dude, its sad when you have injuries at needy spots like WR last year and Rb and yet your 1st rounder fails to catch a pass?? you make me laugh haha. Looney fine lets say he wasn't needed but the rest outside of Fleming was a wreck, sans LMJ

Its an atom bomb of a draft when you factor in 2011 draft (Aldon, Kaep, Culliver, Hunter, Miller). That is 5 starters and two potential Hall of famers.

The coaching staff is probably just as curious to see who makes it out of those 3, whoever stands out in training camp will likely be the answer. Last year we had 8 O-Linemen going into the season and will likely be that way again this year, except with Snyder instead of Leonard Davis. The 7th round tackle Bykowski will have to put on an impressive display to make the team over those guys, in all likelihood he gets cut and put on the PS, pending waivers of course.

Wrong. Everyone knows he was drafted for his cool hair.

Granted he has versatality on the o-line (which is nice to have), but he is a "solid back up" at best (if even that).

Niners wanted to add more depth and he makes a lot of sense--got him cheap, plays multiple positions, veteran and former 49er not long ago.

Having said all that, the FO sees these guys all day and know their potential, Looney/Kilgore (young) show/showed a lot of promise, they'll be a part of the future. Snyder (30 something) is rental property for short term...

Agreed.

Snyder is the only legitimate short-term back at OT. Sure you can throw Boone in there cold, who hasn't practiced at OT for over a year, but it makes much more sense to have a guy who is actually practicing at OT as your in-game backup. The only position on the line where Snyder has performed poorly is RT.
Looney is the future Derrick Deese , he will be around for awhile and play a couple positions for us when needed

Deese, what a team player he was. Played every position if I remember right.
Settled at LT, did very well. Axed in the cap hell mass butchering.

Looking forward to seeing Looney's development this pre-season.
Great call NeeJ49er - He really does remind me of that real bad-ass Deese. I hope he can play like him.

We will keep, Kilgore, Looney and Snyder going into the season.

We really need to develop a high quality OT to come off the bench and keep Boone at RG where he's doing fantastic.
