2011 NFL Mock Draft: Colin Kaepernick-#48 Oakland Raiders
Raiders Start Fresh at Quarterback with Nevada Run'n'Gun Star Colin Kaepernick
The Oakland Raiders managed to win eight games last season with a combination of Jason Campbell and Bruce Gradkowski.
That being said they could use a quarterback who will lead this franchise in the future, and with a new coach in Hue Jackson now is the best time.
Had Colin Kaepernick attended an SEC school he would be a sure first pick, as he absolutely dominated both through the air and on the ground at Nevada.
Kaepernick has two big worries surrounding him, and they are that he throws at almost a sidearm angle and that he took no snaps under center at Nevada.
With these drawbacks in mind Kaepernick may not be able to come right in and start from day one, but a few years of coaching should turn him into the NFL star he can be.
The Raiders don't have a first round pick and at #48 they will make their first selection, and it very well could be the quarterback out of Nevada.
