Daniel Kilgore: “It’s going to be an exciting offense”

May 11, 2016 at 4:28 PM--

San Francisco 49ers center Daniel Kilgore stopped by the 49ers Live studio to talk with hosts Taylor Price and Joe Fann. During the appearance, Kilgore touched on a number of topics. One of those topics was the new 49ers offense.

When asked what fans can look forward to from the offense this year, Kilgore said that the tempo of new head coach Chip Kelly's offense should help to improve things. "We've had a history of delay of games. I don't believe we'll have that problem this year. It's going to be quick pace. Blaine Gabbert's doing a great job taking control of the offense and leading the offense," said Kilgore.

Before you read into that last comment too much, note that quarterback Colin Kaepernick's practice with the team has been extremely limited as he recovers from multiple surgeries.

Kilgore went on to complimented the team's group of receivers and running backs, the latter of which he felt was a strong group. "It's going to be up-tempo. It's going to be an exciting offense. When you got an offensive line like we have that can run, we can be deadly. It's going to be fun," he continued.

The 49ers offense ranked 31st in total yards last season, last in scoring, 29th in passing, and 21st in rushing. Chip Kelly's Philadelphia Eagles have never ranked less than 12th in total offense, scoring, or passing and have never ranked less than 14th in rushing. In fact, during his first two seasons in Philadelphia, the Eagles ranked as high as second in total offense, third in scoring, sixth in passing, and first in rushing.

Kilgore also responded to a comment by 49ers rookie DE Ronald Blair stating that he was a legend at Appalachian State. "There wasn't many Daniel Kilgore posters in Boone, North Carolina when I was there," said Kilgore.

Football Outsiders has once again taken a look at the best young players in the league who don't have a lot of playing time. The feature for ESPN casts aside first-round picks and other top prospects, and instead focuses on those who didn't receive a lot of fanfare. "This is a list of players who have a strong chance to make an impact in the NFL despite their lack of draft stock and the fact they weren't immediate NFL starters," wrote Rivers McCown. The list is a top 25 ranking, and two players represent the San Francisco 49ers. The first — 26-year-old offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill — comes in at No. 10. The

For the most part, the San Francisco 49ers offensive line is set. You have Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey as locks to anchor the ends and the underrated Laken Tomlinson at the left guard spot. Right now, Ben Garland is filling in for Weston Richburg. The latter is on the physically-unable-to-perform list as he continues to recover from the torn patellar tendon suffered last season. General manager John Lynch had hoped Richburg would be ready for training camp and shared in April that the offensive lineman should be healthy for the start of the regular
