Perhaps. I'd like to see him stay in the pocket more and go through more reads. Only bring out the running in the playoffs. Not just 1 or 2 reads. Do 3 and 4. Stay in there. I think he wil become a better QB and have a longer career at the top too.
I think you're going to see less and less of those designed running plays for Kaepernick and they actually didn't do it as much as people think anyway. But, the better he gets at just throwing passes, going through his reads and running that offense, the less he'll be running. And, the nice thing is that it's always there waiting to explode when the pocket breaks down and he has to scramble. He really does get up and go when there is nothing in front of him. It's like 20 yards before they even know he's taken off.
Yeah I agree that they'll run less of the designed runs with him as he becomes more comfortable in the offense. He far more dangerous running out of the pocket anyways because usually all the DBs have their back to the LOS because they're afraid to get burned deep. Like Young later on in his career some teams seemed to forget that at any moment he could easily tuck that ball and run if he caught them slipping.
