The Sacramento Bee projects Erik Pears as the 49ers' starting right guard this season.
Pears, 33, was PFF's No. 76 guard among 78 qualifiers last year with the Bills. From left to right, beat writer Matt Barrows projects the 49ers' O-Line to shake out as LT Joe Staley, LG Brandon Thomas, C Daniel Kilgore, RG Pears, and RT Alex Boone. Pears isn't good, 2014 "redshirt" pick Thomas has never played an NFL snap, Kilgore is coming off a broken leg, and Boone would be converting from guard to tackle. This is the fallout of losing LG Mike Iupati (free agency) and RT Anthony Davis (retirement). It's a concern for Carlos Hyde's fantasy outlook.
