Silberman played tackle, but according to the NFL.com scouting report, he is better suited at guard. That makes perfect sense for a 49ers team looking to replace Mike Iupati this year, and probably Alex Boone next year. Brandon Thomas will likely take over at left guard this fall, and Silberman would compete for a starting role in 2016.
Played right tackle at Boston College, but is better suited to be a guard due to his power and lack of foot quickness. Silberman has some physical limitations, but he has the balance and natural power that should intrigue NFL teams.
Our friends at Over The Cap have put together rookie pool estimates. For this pick, the 49ers will be giving Silberman approximately a $105,800 signing bonus. The total value of the deal will be approximately $2,385,800, and the first year cap number would be approximately $461,450. We'll get specific confirmation on these numbers later this summer.
