OK guys, I get it! We're loading up the QB position, sorta. We're gonna get a veteran QB who has tons of experience running a WCO to start for 2 years, Alex Smith will back him up and get a paycheck, and Kaepernick will be groomed to start in year 3. He's gonna need two full years of coaching by Harbaugh to be able to start.

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.
This has been a strange draft so far for SF. I really thought that Harbaugh would wait till next year to spend a high pick on a QB. Well I hope this guy pans out its been to long since we had even an avg QB.
