Kaepernick's Age

Not sure if this topic has already been broached, but does anyone know why Kaep seems considerably older for a player only going into his third year? I see that he spent an extra year at Nevada; is this the only cause? Or was he held back at a younger age?

Not a huge deal, just seems strange that he's already 25 and as old as some of our players who have been on the team for a number of years.
it bugs the hell out of me

Hey, it's a valid topic and certainly a lot better than a lot that I've seen.

Six years seems long to be at college, even as a redshirted freshman.

I agree.

I remember someone saying his age last season and thought to myself "damn he is a lot older than I thought, that is pretty annoying". Then I realised, I would rather have Kap at 25 than some other random player who doesn't have his unique skillset but is 21. i.e. if you have a potential Franchise QB who is 25 you take him irrespective of the fact that he is slightly older than his peers.
Russell Wilson is 24 heading into his 2nd year.
He should be worried about making the team. Possible June 1st cut.
