Colin Kaepernick #7 QB
Height: 6-4 Weight: 230 Age: 25
Born: 11/3/1987 Milwaukee , WI
Experience: 3rd season
High School: John H. Pittman HS [Turlock, CA]
Selected By: San Francisco 49ers
Pick (Overall): 4 (36)
Kaepernick has enough physical tools to be viewed as a developmental backup quarterback prospect. Experienced, competitive, productive and durable but very raw in terms of making NFL reads and throws. Will need to become accustomed to making pro-style progressions and must improve overall accuracy. Arm strength is good but needs to tighten up his delivery and work on getting the ball out on time with more consistency. Can make a lot of plays with his feet but will be too confident at times and take unnecessary sacks. Kaepernick will likely attract a team with his measurables and outstanding intangibles. His stock has risen considerably with solid workouts, so expect him to be taken some time in the second to third round.
