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

I think he'll be fine at his current size. What he needs to work on is removing that side-arm throw from his arsenal.
harbaugh developing a mobile/accurate quarterback!
This kid has everything; he's cool under pressure, intelligent, cannon arm, elusive, can avoid the run, and evades only when he needs to. Very, very special talent; he's going to ride the bench and learn the WCO, gonna be a franchise QB in 2 years.

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?

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

they said switch our second, a 4th and a 5th i think
Who was the team we traded with
Nice! I'm no draft guru, but I liked what I saw from this dude. Welcome to the Niners!

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.

Cincy should have taken Kaepernick...will regret it in a few years.

who the f**k is matt williamson?

imo dalton will be better than kep

prob just a beat writer who liked him

Nope sorry, Williamson was a scout/recruiting coordinator for the University of Pitt and then a scout for the Browns. Now he's analyst for ESPN and a host on the Football Today podcast.
So pumped right now! OLB check....QB check....

Now go after CB/WR/DT/DE

I think Harbaugh wanted Kaep the entire time.
Not sure how I feel about the pick. Anyone know what we gave up to move up in the draft?

I actually think they wanted CK, but knew Dalton would be picked first. As soon as someone picked Dalton, they knew they had to move up to get CK.

Just my gut, though.
HELL YEAHHHHHH...SO HAPPY!!!!!

Doubt it. I think Harbaugh wanted a QB legs and a huge ceiling. I don't think we'd have traded up if we were just settling for someone. This was clearly a get our guy type of trade.
