Colin Kaepernick's arm strength

When Trent Baalke went on CSN bay area he said that Colin's thrown football at the combine, when measured had the fastest speed leaving his hand as well as reaching a receiver out of all of the quarterbacks at the combine.

He also stated that Kap has the upper end arm strength to make many throws other qb's are unable to.

So I wanted to ask the zone, how strong of an arm do you think Kaepernick has compared to other nfl qb's.
Example: Cutler, Kaepernick, Rivers

Thanks.
Rivers
JaMarcus Russell, Kaepernick, Shaun Shill.
Chad Pennington, Kapernick, David Carr

Kap>Cutler, Rivers, Rodgers, Mannings all combined into one

I think most of the human species fits between this range
He's got a 90+ mph fastball which i think on sports science equivalates to a 60+ mph football throw. Probably only the top 10% of QBs in the league have an arm like that. Mallet has thrown 80 yard bombs in practice and Kaep came in just ahead of him on sports science.

Honestly I'd say he already has one of the top 5 strongest arms in the league... now it's just about translating that armstrength into actual production and wins.

Only thing that concerns me is that sidearm short-armed release.
