Gotta create competition and like Kilgore, martin also plays guard.
I get that but saying he's the "starter" is a little absurd. Anybody trust a rookie to make the line calls for Kap, in a season when we expect the Super Bowl? He needs a year before we can let him run the line.
When you spend a high pick and pay millions you normally need to play the kid. For a 3rd rounder we can wait and let him absorb the mental stuff. If he wins out great, I just don't think it happens this year. With the defenses we play in the West it will be a tall order.
Look at it like this. The FO was comfortable letting Goodwin go, knowing we had Kilgore waiting. They had no idea if they could even get this kid prior to today. I would hope they would have faith in Kilgore starting, knowing full well we may not have been able to draft a C.
