Colin Kaepernick

School: Nevada
Position: QB
Bio: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore season. Totals last year included 64.9%/3022/21/8 after 58.9%/2052/20/6 as a junior. Rushing totals included 173/1026/20 as a senior and 161/1183/16 as a junior.
Positive: Tall, athletic quarterback prospect who possesses a tremendous amount of upside. Patient in the pocket and displays terrific awareness as well as field presence. Buys time for receivers and displays a sense of timing and terrific pass placement. Accurate and consistently puts throws where only his receiver can make the reception. Throws a catchable ball, possesses a strong arm, and his passes immediately get to the intended target. Drives the short and intermediate throws, gets the ball through tight spots, and hits deep receivers in stride. Makes solid decisions in the pocket, tossing the ball away rather than forcing passes to covered receivers. Stands strong against the rush to get the pass off but also has the ability to scramble away from defenders and avoid the sack. Solid carrying the ball, displaying elusiveness, speed, and some strength.
Negative: Throws with a three-quarters/side-arm delivery, which seems to sap him of downfield arm strength. Does not consistently make proper reads. Throws the ball off his back foot, which results in errant passes. Holds the ball little too long in the pocket.
Analysis: Kaepernick has been a productive college quarterback who's game has consistently progressed. Besides his physical skills, he offers terrific intangibles and does more then rely on his strong arm or nimble feet to make plays. He has starting potential at the next level but will need more time to develop his game.
