A look at the NFC West's best and worst from the past five NFL drafts, one team at a time.San Francisco 49ersBest choice: Colin Kaepernick, QB, 2011 second round. There were other strong candidates, for sure. Finding a franchise quarterback in the second round strikes me as more impressive than, say, finding an elite pass-rusher (Aldon Smith) early in the first. Let's not forget about NaVorro Bowman, either. Some might warn against anointing Kaepernick as a franchise quarterback following only 10 starts.
