Wyche: Life after Manning
Kaepernick has intrigued multiple teams holding picks in the late in the first round and early in the second round, and while finding Peyton Manning's eventual replacement isn't an immediate need, developing a talented prospect could be on the team's radar. The Colts also have met with TCU quarterback Andy Dalton.
A strong showing at Nevada's March 22 pro day helped boost Kaepernick's stock. The consensus among those present was that Kaepernick, a player whom no school except Nevada recruited coming out of high school, probably will be a second-round pick.
Kaepernick passed for 3,022 yards and 21 touchdowns with eight interceptions in his senior season with the Wolf Pack.
