The San Francisco 49ers have finally found some stability along the once shaky offensive line as undrafted rookie free-agent RG Andrew Tiller will get the second consecutive start this week against the Arizona Cardinals.

Tiller, who graded out positively by Pro Football Focus against the Seattle Seahawks, will now be given yet another opportunity to win out the right guard position moving forward. “I’ll be starting this week,” Tiller told me.

Tiller who admitted at times it was hard to get into a rhythm having splitting reps with RG Jordan Devey, has been feeling more and more comfortable as his playing time increases. “It’s hard to get into rhythm sometimes when you’re splitting reps but you have to work through it,” Tiller told me. I then asked about his thoughts on QB Blaine Gabbert after the Seahawks game. “He’s the truth. It’s not surprising to me to see how well he’s been playing. He was my quarterback during the preseason and he’s doing well.”  

Tiller, continues to be one of the lone bright spots on the right side of the line after being on the team’s practice squad to start the season. A true mauler down in the trenches, it appears that Tiller will finally get the starting nod moving forward as he has done a nice job up to this point.
