Draft Rewind 2011: Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about COLIN KAEPERNICK: Nevada, 6045 225 4.53. Four-year starter who has been productive with his arm and legs over his career. Impressive mobility and deep ball accuracy. A good athlete who can make all the NFL throws. Has a good pocket presence to move and slide away from pressure. He ran the Pistol offense that was developed by his head coach, Chris Ault. The quarterback is closer to the line of scrimmage (4 yds) than a true shotgun formation (6-7 yds). The running back lines up 3 yards behind the quarterback. This formation was developed to add power and an option running game to the spread offense. The Steelers used some Pistol concepts with Ben Roethlisberger in 2010 after Ben broke his foot. Kansas City, Miami, and Detroit also dabbled with the Pistol offense. Kaepernick is a hard working self-motivated athlete who will work in and off season to develop into an NFL quarterback. Throws ¾ arm with a long motion. Good accuracy short, medium, and long. Extends the play to let the play develop. Can gun the 10-yard out from the opposite hash mark. Productive in his career with over 10,000 yards passing and over 4000 yards rushing. In 2010 he had 20 passing TDs and 20 rushing TDs. Outstanding competitor who is a long strider. Stands tall in the pocket. Makes up for his long delivery with ball velocity and quickness. A game changing dynamic performer who is an ascending player. Ball velocity 59 mph. OSR:5/ 18. Second/third round. (A-33 3/4, H-9 5/8, SS-4.18, VJ-32.5).
