Sure there is bias there, but Kaep may have the highest ceiling of any QB to play the game. He has an absolute Canon for an arm; maybe the strongest in the league. He is possibly the fastest QB in the league as well (he's not a shifty guy, but his straight line speed is insane), he's a tall guy that has a frame to build a body that will take punishment. Those are all things you can't teach a QB. On top of all that he's extremely accurate, makes good decisions, is a born leader, has great escapeability and playmaking ability, he's humble, has incredible work-ethic, and he is very intelligent. I've said this in other posts, but he literally has every single attribute and intangible you look for in a QB, and at elite levels. In fact, he might have the highest ceiling of any QB I've ever seen. That being said, he has some rough spots in fumbling snaps and play-clock management, but he also has a guy in Harbaugh willing to guide him through those transitionary steps. Remember, Luck was very pro ready and Kaep came from a gimmicky offense and was dubbed as very raw. Yet, in his second preseason we saw the incredible strides he made from his first, and now we can see he's continuing that progress against some incredibly challenging situations (like beating NE at home in Dec). Luck is the safer pick. He's gonna be a superstar. Kaep on the other hand truly has the potential to be the best QB EVER. I honestly believe that. But potential is only potential, he has a ton of growing, a mountain of work ahead, and has to have a ton of luck (no pun intended) to get there.
