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

Two freakishly athletic raw prospects with huge upside. Although risky picks, huge boom/bust potential. Excited to see both of these prospects develop over the next few years.

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

Yes because it was only to move up 9 spots.

4 + 5 = 9 it is simple math.

Gained around 500 followers since he was drafted.

look at the fools asking for retweets.

What does that mean? What are they asking for?

basically it gets their screen name passed out to all his followers.

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.

People care what ESPN says?

walter football said teh same thing

Yea he sucks... Look at the QB rating on the page posted.

I'm hopeful about this pick, but I don't think the QB rating of a guy in the freaking WAC tells you anything about how good he is.

49ers were verry active on Kaepernick. Explored options in late 1st round, and also spoke to NE and BUF today. They got their man at pick 36

If I remember he kicked the sh*t out of Cal and BC who both were supposed to have top notch defenses.

Was pissed at first (kind of like with the Smith pick), but it's starting to make more and more sense to me. His skills are Vick-like and was a much better passer and even runner in college, albeit against weaker competition.

Completed 10-15 against Cal. In college you run first, in the NFL you pass first.
