Well as of right now, we are all over the place with all college prospects. But I think Wilsons stock may have dropped a bit due to all his bad decisions this year and inconsistency. But hes got all the tools IMO, to be a solid NFL starter. With Alex Smith gone, I'd probably take another QB in the 2nd, which would pretty much be the 3rd round. But that's if a Tyler Wilson, Landry Jones or maybe even Tyler Bray. But my QB man-crush is Mike Glennon but it looks like he'll be way outta reach according to numerous draft sites grading him as a 1st round pick.
Way too early IMO, especially with the 49ers having 2 young QB's already. Taking a QB that early means now you're not drafting a cornerback, a WR, a DT, a DE at that spot, all far bigger needs at this point. A QB in Round 4 and lower, fine, but I hope they use picks on people who will contribute right off the bat as this team is terribly lacking depth a variety of positions. If Harbaugh is convinced that Kaepernick is the guy, then he'll have at least another 2 seasons to prove it, drafting a 3rd string quarterback isn't going to get this team to the Superbowl any faster.
Your most likely right, I'm just thinking of the way Baalke and Harbaugh worked the draft. They drafted for players that would help them down the line, for instance when the took LaMichael James when we already had Gore, Hunter, Jacobs and Dixon. I wasn't expecting James to make any kind of impact until someone got hurt or a couple years from now. But Hunter went down and it was lucky we drafted James. Same with drafting a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round, I don't expect that QB to make any kind of impact but sit and learn like Kaepernick did. There are no guarantees with Tolzien either even though I like what I saw in him. The QB position is probably thee most important one on any team and we all saw what happens when that position isn't stable, see Chiefs, Cards, Raiders, Jaguars and Eagles. Of course this is just my opinion but would hate to fall into the situations that we had in the past, also there are no vets I would wanna bring in either.
