49ers C Daniel Kilgore had the public intoxication charges against him dismissed last week.
Kilgore was booked in January after he was "staggering down a sidewalk" in his hometown in Tennessee. The 49ers didn't seem too concerned and inked him to a three-year contract extension in late February. Kilgore is fully expected to be given every opportunity to replace Jonathan Goodwin at center.

49ers signed G/C Daniel Kilgore to a three-year contract extension through 2017.

CSN Bay Area first reported the sides were close to an agreement. A 2011 fifth-rounder, Kilgore had been considered the most likely candidate to take over for free agent Jonathan Goodwin. This sets it in stone. Kilgore has appeared in all 16 games each of the past two seasons, but has just 170 career snaps to his name. He's mostly been used as an extra blocker on offense. The 49ers need a back-up plan, perhaps in the form of a draft pick.

The Sacramento Bee expects fourth-year OL Daniel Kilgore to succeed free agent Jonathan Goodwin as the 49ers' starting center in 2014.

Goodwin is a free agent. Center is a popular position for the 49ers in mock drafts, but beat writer Matt Barrows sounds confident San Francisco will use its premium picks elsewhere. Kilgore has been effective in spot duty the past two seasons, seeing (limited) playing time at all three interior line spots.

49ers OL Daniel Kilgore was arrested for public intoxication early last Sunday morning.

Kilgore and another male were "staggering on the sidewalk" in Kingsport, Tenn. at 2:18 AM Sunday morning and were subsequently arrested "for their safety and the welfare of the public." Kilgore was a fifth-round pick of the 49ers out of Appalachian State in 2011. He's a key reserve and will likely be in the competition for center duties if free agent Jonathan Goodwin isn't re-signed.

49ers reserve OL Daniel Kilgore left Monday night's game against the Cardinals with a concussion and will not return.

Kilgore was injured on the opening kickoff. San Francisco already listed Joe Looney as an inactive, so they are down to veteran Leonard Davis as the only offensive line back-up. Kilgore was a fifth-round pick in 2011.

Daniel Kilgore is expected to compete for the 49ers' starting right guard job this season.

The Niners allowed veteran Adam Snyder to bolt for the division-rival Cardinals, leaving a hole at right guard. They traded up in the fifth round to get Kilgore last April. It's an area of need for the Niners.

49ers signed fifth-round G/C Daniel Kilgore to a four-year contract.

Kilgore finished his career at Appalachian State as a left tackle, but he's 6-foot-3, 308 with short arms. Most teams projected him as a guard, and the 49ers project Kilgore to center. It's a major need area in San Francisco.

The 49ers plan to use fifth-rounder Daniel Kilgore primarily at center.

It's the one position on the line that he didn't play at Appalachian State. Veteran free agent David Baas is expected to be re-signed, but that's no sure thing. Eric Heitmann, who suffered a neck injury last season, may be forced to retire.

49ers traded up with the Packers to select Appalachian State G Daniel Kilgore with the No. 163 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

San Francisco surrendered the No. 174 and No. 231 picks to move up and take Kilgore, who is extremely raw but has great upside. His technique needs an overhaul, but he was known as a fierce, even nasty, competitor during his time in college. Thanks to only average athleticism, however, he's going to need a lot of coaching before he's ready to join the Niners rotation along their offensive line.
