Round 2, #36, the San Francisco 49ers selects Colin Kaepernick (QB) Nevada

i loved dalton, but i was also interested in kaepernick. i would be lying if i said i wanted CK1 (as i call him now) over dalton, but i'm definitely happy with the pick. dude has a gun and harbaugh knows what he is doing

so what do we do now? does CK get the nod this year or are we still going to attempt to bring Smith back? I agree Arizona needs a QB probably worse than us and they are avoiding it & are craving Bulger.

I like the Aldon Smith choice more as I read about the guy, and then this.. pretty awesome draft so far

I highly doubt Kaepernick will start right off the bat. He will be groomed and eased in. I'm very confident Alex Smith will be back this year, and I'm OK with it now. That is, unless they get McNabb, Bulger or Palmer. Kolb is out of the picture now.

u never know? Would be hilarious if we signed Bulger for a year while CK learns, Arizona would be really screwed.

What type of offense does Nevada play in? Was it similar to what Smith was in @ Utah?



Really weird spread type hybrid, not an Urban Meyer offense thats for sure. Kaepernick is going to have an even steeper learning curve but I think Harbaugh values his leadership traits, his athleticism, strong arm and accuracy. I'm sure he'll be able to learn the system as time goes on.

Great PICK,He's No Alex Smith or any of the otheR QBS we had last year- This guy could have opt'd for pro baseball as a pitcher (fastball clocked at 95 miles ...Guys do your research before you judge, He's raw, But he's a leader! as far as the offense he ran in college, there are several pro teams that have studied the film (pistol offense) to see if it would work in the NFL- GOOD PICK
Raider fans mad lol

this ^
but I hope and think he'll be ready in 2012.
also hope Harbaugh brings him in this year in certain situations to help his development a little

So are the Cardinals fans here in Phoenix. LOL.......that's called a two-fer. Piss off the Cardinals and the Raiders all at once!

you are right about that...but he already showed that he can learn fast at the senior bowl.

Just wondeting do you think they really wanted Dalton and settled for Kap?



Not at all. I don't think they ever planned on taking Dalton in the first place. I think Denver gave them a decent offer on trading up and they jumped in front to grab Kaepernick before the Cardinals or the Raiders beat them to it.

I think Harbaugh wanted Kaep the entire time.
Yeah, he could have moved up to get Dalton if he really wanted him

thx
Watch, as I post this, Dalton will go on to be a pro-bowler, but if it makes any difference, this random-ass scouting website on Dalton: "Has a low ceiling, doesn't possess any rare physical gifts to set him apart from other quarterbacks... Probably will never develop into an NFL starter..."
