he will get drafted.
this poll is gonna be very one sided because the only shot we have at Locker is #7, and most people are not gonna want him at that spot, whereas Kaep could be picked in the latter rounds with good value
Locker is suffering from too much exposure. What I've seen from him recently makes me really nervous about him. But when I saw him play his freshman year he looked super human. Like the other 21 guys on the field were just there to watch him perform. At that point I couldn't wait for the 9ers to get a shot at drafting him. But now, after watching his development stall, I'm not sure I'd want him.
Kaepernick is, right now, where Locker was a few years ago. It's quite possible he just hasn't had the chance to show his flaws.
But if we assumed that either of them could become a great QB under Harbaugh, I think I'd still rather have that guy be Kaepernick. QBs that are that big and athletic that figure out how to become deadly passers are VERY hard to defend against. Just one pass rusher might not be able to bring him down. You see this with Big Ben all the time.
Kaepernick turning into a legit QB would be the best possible thing that could happen to us in this draft. I just don't know how likely that is....
