Interior O-line options at No. 30

We're inside of two weeks until the first round of the NFL draft. Near the end of that day, the 49ers are scheduled to make a selection.It'll be repeatedly stated up to April 26 that the 49ers do not have to draft for need. But there are positions that appear to set up better than others for a selection at that point.We'll look at some of those positions in the next few days. Interior offensive line is one of those spots.Taking into account the obvious -- that Stanford guard David DeCastro -- will be long gone, here are four interior offensive lineman who could be available to join a competition with Daniel Kilgore and, perhaps, Alex Boone for the 49ers' starting job at right guard:C-G Peter Konz, Wisconsin
Ht: 6-5; Wt: 314
Bench press (225 pounds): 18
He could compete as a rookie for a starting job at guard while figuring in as the long-term answer at center. (Jonathan Goodwin is 33 and signed for another couple seasons.)G-T Kelechi Osemele, Iowa State
Ht: 6-5 12; Wt: 333
Bench press (225 pounds): 32
He has the athleticism and physical tools to be dominant, including an 86-inch wingspan.G Amini Silatolu, Midwestern State
Ht: 6-3 58: Wt: 311
Bench press (225 pounds): 28
He dominated at the NCAA Division II level as a left tackle. He'll be a guard in the NFL. His good feet and willingness to play to the whistle are attributes that make him worthy of a late-first or second-round pick.G Kevin Zeitler, Wisconsin
Ht: 6-3 78; Wt: 314
Bench press (225 pounds): 32
He earned the full-time starting role at right guard as a sophomore. Not a physical specimen, but is a dedicated worker who exhibits good technique and toughness.

Report: 49ers increase offer to Bradley to become D-coordinator

Report: 49ers increase offer to Bradley to become D-coordinator

The 49ers reportedly continue to pursue Gus Bradley to serve as defensive coordinator on presumptive coach Kyle Shanahan’s staff.

The 49ers have increased their offer to Bradley, Mike Siliver of the NFL Network reported on Friday. Bradley wanted to work with Tom Cable, according to the report.

Cable interviewed with the 49ers on Sunday but removed his name from consideration on Tuesday after he and Seattle co-director of player personnel Trent Kirchner sensed their 49ers’ interest in them intended to receive a commitment from Shanahan, sources told CSNBayArea.com.

Bradley served as defensive coordinator with the Seattle Seahawks from 2009 to ’12. In Bradley’s final season on Pete Carroll’s staff, Seattle ranked first in the NFL in points allowed and fourth in total yards.

Bradley became head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013. His teams went 14-48 before he was fired with two games remaining in the season.

The 49ers this week inquired with the Chicago Bears about the possibility of bringing back Vic Fangio to the organization to serve as defensive coordinator. The 49es were informed, according to a source, that the Bears would not let Fangio out of his contract. Fangio was the defensive coordinator for all four seasons with the 49ers under Jim Harbaugh.

Report: Jim Tomsula interviews for Saints DL job

Report: Jim Tomsula interviews for Saints DL job

Former 49ers coach Jim Tomsula reportedly interviewed this week for the New Orleans Saints’ defensive line job.

Tomsula, 48, who was fired as head coach of the 49ers after a 5-11 record in 2015, spent last season out of the football. He interviewed with Saints coach Sean Payton to replace fired line coach Bill Johnson, the Alex Marvez of The Sporting News reported, citing two sources.

Tomsula was hired as head coach to replace Jim Harbaugh after the 49ers announced a “mutual parting” with Harbaugh following the team’s 8-8 season of 2014.

Tomsula was well-regarded as the organization’s defensive line coach from 2007 to ’14.
