Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick met with 14 teams at the NFL scouting combine, and he displayed the best velocity of any quarterback during testing that measures how many miles per hour.

According to a league source with knowledge of the situation, Kaepernick threw the football 59 miles per hour. Kaepernick is a former Chicago Cubs draft selection and an all-state baseball player who threw 94 miles per hour.

That edged out Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett (58 miles per hour) and Auburn quarterback Cam Newton (56 miles per hour).

The Nevada standout is the lone quarterback in Division I history to pass for over 10,000 career yards and also rush for 4,000 yards.

59 mile an hour football, its not that crazy. You could probably create an equation to prove it if you want. I will retract and revise to 50 yard rope, is that ok?

Kaep has the fastest throw in the combine (59mph). Faster than Mallet's (58mph), who was supposed to have the STRONGEST arm in the combine.

Here's an article mentioning Kaep's 59 mph throw.
pfff whatever... Alex HAS...not "can"... but HAS thrown 100mph, he only chooses to showcase this talent when there is receiver 5 yards away though.

GO NINERS

The doubts about Moon were do to his skin color not his throwing motion. At that time teams just didn't believe a black QB could be a franchise all-pro. As a result he didn't get drafted. If Moon were white, he would have been a top 10 pick that year.

According to FOX Sports’ Adam Caplan, Kaepernick was “great” on Monday and “by far” the best quarterback in practice on Wednesday. CBS’ Rob Rang noted Kaepernick’s “spectacular” arm strength. Rotoworld’s Michael Schottey observed that Kaepernick “threw the ball as well as anyone,” generating “buzz from team scouts.”

Of course, NFL Network’s Mike Mayock already knew about Kaepernick’s “huge” arm. At the 2010 Manning Quarterback camp, Mayock recalled seeing Eli and Peyton so awed they were “giggling” about the 23-year-old’s howitzer. Said Mayock after watching one of Kaepernick’s Thursday throws, “Did you see the RPMs there? Man, I’d love to work with that kid.”

His motion isn't the prettiest but it works for him and there is no need to change it right now. Not everyone throws the same and your throwing motion isn't going to ultimately determime if you are going to be a good QB or not.

Not sure I'm seeing the relation to that and a racist like Rush Limbaugh.

Most people in the NFL world agree with my previous statement. You won't find many that agree with Limbaugh's blatant hate.

Moon won the MVP in the Rose Bowl his last year at Washington.... then scouts told the future HOF QB that he would need to switch to TE to play in the NFL lol.

Ive heard all of that but a 60 yard rope isnt possible
Maybe his funky throwing style is necessary to accommodate his unusually small (9.1" ) hands?

The kid could throw the ball with his feet for all I care. Just get it out on time and accurately!

You may or may not be correct. Just let the legend of Kaepernick blossum.

You are very wrong about that.
