Scott on a lesser level can do all the same stuff that Kaepernick can, run the read option, run the pistol formation, is a threat to run or pass the ball, great leadership skills, strong football IQ, raw but highly talented.
it looks like the niners backup qb in 2013 will be tolzien---he is not suited for the read option....so i dont think the niners necessarily feel that their backup qb has to be a read option type of qb...scott would be a woefully inexperienced qb to rely on as backup to kaepernick were niners to draft scott, even though his skils might be suited to a read option....
i dont see any great options for read option qbs in free agency (and i know josh johnson is out there)..if kaepernick were not available i would think niners go back to an offensive scheme more akin to what they ran with alex smith
bray has higher uspdie than scott, has a much stronger arm so that he could eventually make some of the downfield throws that kaeprenick was making this season, and if he develops really well, might be a guy niners could flip later for a high draft pick(s), similar to the way the packers did with guys like hasselback, aaron brooks and mark brunell
