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

Cool We got Colin Kaepernick in the 2nd round. Kind of reminds me a bit of a Garcia and Young mold as far as leadership and athleticism but with a stronger arm. We should see what happens... Harbaugh he is all yours take him under your wing and show him the deal.

Love the pick!

This is what Harbaugh saw:

Quick release, strong arm, accurate, and mobile. Sit him a year and he will ball.

Very impressive! Very...
Love this pick!!!

GO NINERS!!!

I don't like the pick. I prefer to resign Alex Smith and start him. The spelling of his last name is much easier to remember than Kaepernick.

How many 2nd round QB's are not "projects". If they were projected not to be projects, then they would be 1st round picks.

49ers made a solid pick, anyone know what they gave up to move ahead by 10 spots?

They swapped 2nd round picks and they gave up a 4th and 5th rounders.

I'm surprised they gave up so much to get this guy. Seems desperate. Scouting reports say he is very raw and a development project. Now, maybe in the hands of Harbaugh that will pay big dividends a couple years down the line, but that seems like an awfully steep price. All we needed, IMO, is an accurate passer who can distribute the ball. This guy is one of those runner/passer hybrids.

He is an accurate passer with very good arm strength. The only guy with a higher ceiling than Kaepernick at QB was Cam Newton, but Newton also has more bust potential. I am very happy with this pick and giving up a 4th and 5th isn't too much to pay for a potential franchise QB. If he wasn't a QB, I might question the trade-up, but this was obviously a huge need and, like I said, I'm almost positive Arizona was going to take him with the next pick.

Well, I hope you're right about that, but the ESPN breakdown is not as glowing. Strong leadership, strong arm, yes. But his accuracy is ranked average and he is ranked below average in intelligence/decision making, citing that he comes from the Pistol offense in the WAC that has very simplistic reads.

A fourth and a fifth? Really? U mad about that?

Yes because it was only to move up 9 spots.

Chill out. At least they didn't ask us for our 3rd.
