Not really. Harbaugh always wanted Kaepernick, he spent the most time with Kaepernick, that was his guy. I remember hearing that Baalke and some of the other scouts were interested in Dalton but Harbaugh always wanted Kaepernick and only Kaepernick, he felt that Dalton was more ready but that Kaepernick had significantly better tools and upside.
Serious? Good Job Harbaugh!! I am so happy.. I am tell u the true cuz i really interested in Kaep more than Dalton because i watched Kaep on video youtube what he did play for college and chamionship. he did beat the Boise college. My eyes on him.. he looked good and smart to plays and good his mind and get to fight the win games.. I loved it..

lmao! "I am tell you the true". CLASSIC. And the run on sentence of broken english! hilarious! bro!....LOL... anyway...

Andrew Luck help turn Harbaugh's eyes onto Kaepernick... IIRC.

LOL.. i am a broken English? u know, i am a deaf cuz i am having hard time with sentence English. bro..

If I can't image about 49ers can without harbaugh then lost interest to draft for Kaep?.. I am glad that we have a head coach Harbaugh! He is same to me that we are interested in kaep..

So Buzz, I'm curious. After reading your posts for a few years now I really had just one question. Does everything that everyone else posts look completely backwards and illegible to you?

I dont understand it what do u means. ..

Come back with me to draft weekend 2011, when the 49ers had the 45th overall pick and began to understand late in the first round that they'd need to move up to get the man they wanted, Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

I covered the draft in San Francisco that weekend. GM Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh had targeted Kaepernick and TCU quarterback Andy Dalton, in that order, before the draft. Late in the first, Baalke tried to trade up with a package of picks starting with the Niners' pick at 45, but couldn't swing a deal. He started again a half hour before the beginning of Friday's second round, calling the Patriots, who held the first pick (No. 33) that evening.

The Raiders, who'd dealt their 2011 first-round choice to New England in September 2009 to get defensive tackle Richard Seymour, were also trying to get the Pats' pick. That gave the Patriots leverage. San Francisco offered two third-round picks (one from this draft, one from 2012) to move up, but New England wanted a third-rounder this year and a second-rounder next year. Baalke thought that was too much, even if it meant losing his quarterback of the future. The Patriots hung on and drafted Virginia cornerback Ras-I Dowling. Baalke knew the Bills weren't going to take Kaepernick or Dalton at 34, and he figured Cincy would take Dalton at 35. So he focused on the pick after Cincinnati's, held by the Broncos, and dealt fourth- and fifth-rounders this year to Denver. Baalke got his man, and for significantly less than he would have paid New England.

The Niners drafted Kaepernick with the fourth pick in the second round on Friday, at about 3:17 p.m. Pacific Time. Kaepernick was in his hometown of Turlock, Calif., about 90 minutes from Santa Clara, where the 49ers train. Kaepernick was in the 49ers building, grinning widely, by 6:30 p.m. Eager student. That weekend, Baalke said to me: "Colin has a unique ability to think himself to win. That's something we believe is very important for an NFL quarterback, and that's one of the things that attracted us to him.''

Twenty-one months later, he's in the Super Bowl.

I read the same thing. It said something like "Baalke wanted to throw Harbaugh a bone, so he let him pick Kaepernick."

when Dalton was picked didnt Baalke hit the table with his fist or looked frustrated because non of the phones where ringing. I think this was where we got the impression that maybe the QB they wanted was off the table.

I remember Baalke pounding the table after Philly picked Nate Allen just ahead of us and then Singletary supposedly pushed for Taylor Mays.
