Getting to know … Nevada QB Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick
Height: 6’6″
Weight: 225 lbs.
College: Nevada
Conference: WAC

Overview: Kaepernick has enough physical tools to be viewed as a developmental backup quarterback prospect. Experienced, competitive, productive and durable but very raw in terms of making NFL reads and throws. Will need to become accustomed to making pro-style progressions and must improve overall accuracy. Arm strength is good but needs to tighten up his delivery and work on getting the ball out on time with more consistency. Can make a lot of plays with his feet but will be too confident at times and take unnecessary sacks. Kaepernick will likely attract a team with his measurables and outstanding intangibles to take him in the late rounds.

Noteworthy: Kaepernick was the second quarterback in FBS history to pass for 20 touchdowns and run for 20 touchdowns in a season, joining former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. Auburn’s Cam Newton later became the third. … Led Nevada to a 34-31 overtime win over previously unbeaten Boise State. … Was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 2009 MLB Amateur Draft.
