  • Quarterback

  • Nevada


  • Colin Kaepernick Scouting Report
    By Greg Cox

    Strengths:
  • Leadership qualities
  • Ideal height
  • Highly productive runner
  • Evasive with excellent speed
  • Lots of experience
  • Tremendous athlete
  • Good arm strength
  • Very hard worker and intelligent



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs more work on accuracy, especially deep accuracy
  • Delivery issues (windup) partially due to height
  • Has to adjust from Pistol offense
  • Must go through more progressions at pro level
  • Frame might lead to durability concerns
  • Lacks size to rid himself of tacklers
  • Ball security needs improvement
  • Played mostly against inferior competition

    Summary: Colin Kaepernick was remarkably consistent during his four years at Nevada. His touchdown passes were 19, 22, 20 and 21. He ran for 1,100 or more yards in each of his final three seasons. The passing yards were the only exception with less production in 2007 and 2009, but even against mostly WAC opponents he only threw 24 interceptions in 1,271 attempts. He also greatly improved his accuracy to 65 percent as a senior.

    The leadership factor weighs heavily into his evaluation and although the second round is littered with failures, he might be an exception. Teams have to love that he might have had a future in baseball (he was drafted by the Cubs) yet stuck with football which clearly illustrates his passion for football. That's good because his mechanics need work.
