49ers meeting with guard Amini Silatolu today

Guard Amini Silatolu, who played high school football in Tracy, is visiting the 49ers today, a league source said.

Silatolu, twenty-seven, is a former second-round draft choose who's started twenty-eight games for the Panthers and whose athleticism presumably would create him a excellent fit for new 49ers coach Chip Kelly'south zone-blocking scheme.

Silatolu, however, tore his left ACL in Nov and will be out of action until training camp. He tore the right ACL in 2013.

The 49ers took a long see at Silatolu before the two thousand twelve draft, and he met with then-offensive line coach Mike Solari that spring. The 49ers ended up selecting receiver A. J. Jenkins with the thirtieth overall choose that year; the Panthers took Silatolu with the fortieth overall pick.

He also has had free-agent visits with the Seahawks and Cardinals this year.

Silatolu attended W Tracy High school before playing at San Joaquin Delta College and then Midwestern State in Texas. News of the 49ers' interest first was reported by CSN Bay Area.
