2011 49ers Draft Pick Contracts: Bruce Miller, Daniel Kilgore Sign Four Year Deals With Niners

The tempest that is the NFL post-lockout continues to rage as the San Francisco 49ers have announced the signing of two of their 2011 draft picks in fullback Bruce Miller and offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore to four year contractsrespectively.

Kilgore compensation breakdown looks something like this: (via CSN's Matt Maiocco)

First-year allocation: $415,075
Total four-year allocation: $2,282,913
First-year minimum allotment: $411,075

The signing of Kilgore is important due to the fact that the Niners lost center David Baas to free agency, causing the team to have a hole to fill in their O Line. Kilgore likely won't be moved to the center position as many believe Adam Snyder will fill that gap for San Francisco. The 6'3" 290 lbs. Kilgore was taken in the 5th round (163rd overall) out of Appalachian State.

As for fullback Bruce Miller, his compensation breakdown goes something like this: (also from Maiocco)

First-year allocation: $390,613
Total four-year allocation: $2,148,369
First-year minimum allotment: $386,475

Miller comes into the Niners backfield at a time of great speculation for the team. Frank Gore is holding out for more money, backup Boobie Dixon has talked about moving to fullback, the team drafted RB Kendal Hunter as well as signing undrafted QB Jerimiah Masoli to make the transition to the backfield as well. Miller was the Niners seventh round pick (211th overall) out of the University of South Florida.
