Kyle Shanahan sheds light on 49ers interior OL competitions

The 49ers need to get the interior of their offensive line sorted out. It’s the single biggest question mark on their team that doesn’t directly involve Trey Lance. It sounds like they’re moving in the right direction for at least two of the three positions though, with the third spot still up in the air.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan held a press conference before Friday’s practice and discussed what’s happening on the team’s still-unproven offensive line.

There seems to be no question that Aaron Banks will be the left guard. He’s taken the first-team reps there, and he was selected in Round 2 of last year’s draft to be a long-term starter for San Francisco. He spent the offseason reshaping his body and improving his athleticism to better handle the demands of interior OL in Shanahan’s system.

At right guard an unlikely frontrunner has emerged. Rookie fourth-round pick Spencer Burford has been holding that spot down throughout camp with no real challengers emerging. That spot was thought to be Daniel Brunskill’s to lose since he’s started there the last two years, but he’s instead been going head-to-head with Jake Brendel for the starting center job. Right guard appears to be Burford’s spot to lose, but the team could quickly slide Brunskill back there.

“Spencer, he’s done a great job,” Shanahan said. “He’s got the skillset to do it, so it’s about getting the reps and getting used to going against our D-line and just doing it down in and down out at this level. But he’s got the ability to do it at a high level. When you talk about Brunskill, Brunskill’s been there for the last couple years. We know what Dan can do. Everyone has to prove himself, definitely, but getting Dan a ton of reps, isn’t always going to help him. He needs to get to the season healthy as good as he can. And we also want to make sure he is getting more reps at center because that’s what he’s had less of the past couple years.”

So what about center?…
