If Harbaugh truly wanted to run more of West Coast oriented offense, Garoppolo fits that to a T. Quick release, accurate, quick feet, doesn't get frazzled too easily in the pocket, very decisive, reads defense's well...etc.
As a backup, he'd be outstanding, a perfectly capable starter in case ever Kaepernick went down.
I agree, he is a perfect fit for what Harbaugh wants in a QB. Give him some time to groom and he would be the best backup qb or a eventual replacement if kaepernick doesn't re-sign.
