NEW ORLEANS -- If you've ever watched a Jim Harbaugh press conference, you know the man doesn't part with information easily.
This extends to his family life, apparently. At a press conference for Jack and Jackie Harbaugh (aka the most famous parents in America), Jack recalled a telephone conversation following the first day of the 2011 NFL Draft.
"So I said, 'Jim, tomorrow in the second round, surely you're going to draft a quarterback. Which one is it going to be?' " Jack said, via The Sacramento Bee. "And it's dead silence. In fact, I can hear his voice (lets out a sigh)."
Jim asked if Jack was talking to anyone else. He replied, "I'm not talking to anybody. I'm your dad, you've got to tell me."
Jim -- still skeptical -- asked Jack if he planned on telling his wife, Jackie.
"Would you just tell me who it is?" Jack said. "I promise you, I won't say anything to anybody."
Jim ended the humorous exchange with an answer that showed just how much he thought of the player who would become the Niners' second-round choice.
"He said, 'We're drafting Colin Kaepernick,' " Jack said. "He said, 'I not only think he's the best quarterback in the draft, I think that he's the best football player in the draft. And we're going with Colin Kaepernick.' "
Jim got his man. It remains to be seen if he also got the best player in the draft, but Kaepernick is certainly off to a good start.
