The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly signed former USC offensive lineman Jarrett Kingston to his rookie four-year deal.

Left tackle Trent Williams excelled, but the line's right side needed improvement. The Chiefs exposed that deficiency in the Super Bowl. Many thought the Niners would target a tackle in the first round, even if it meant bundling picks to trade up and get a top-tier player.
