NFL Draft 2011: Discussing the Colin Kaepernick Draft Piece for the Titans
NFL Draft 2011 Might See Colin Kapernick's Name Land in Tennessee
One guy that I am very fascinated by when it comes to this year’s draft is Colin Kaepernick, the dual threat quarterback out of Nevada.
Watching him warm up and just throw makes me wince a little bit because his throwing motion is a little odd and he looks like one good hit would not only end his career but also possibly his life. However, when he steps on the field and plays football it is a thing of beauty.
Kaepernick is outstanding at managing a game. If the team needs him to run he is incredible at that. If the team needs him to throw it, he is also extremely underrated in that regard.
So why isn’t he being mentioned as a possible first round guy?
We have seen a lot of mobile spread option quarterbacks come into the NFL and fall flat on their faces when they are asked to do things they aren’t used to or comfortable with.
That won’t be the case with Kaepernick.
According to CBS Sports’ Titans RapidReports Kaepernick has no problem going under center.
“Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick didn’t take snaps under center during his college career, but he says that won’t be an issue. ‘For me I’m comfortable under center. I’ve been doing it since I was 8, 9 years old. It just changed at Nevada, but we did (get under center) every day.’”
I think he is a legitimate option for the Titans with pick No. 39. He has the tools to develop into a solid NFL player and although there are a lot of people comparing him to Vince Young, Kaepernick has a much better arm.
