He hit 87 with some not-so-great looking pitching mechanics. But since he's right-handed, it means he would have been at-best a fourth starter. And realistically, he probably would have topped out somewhere around A ball. He was only a 42nd round pick, after all. And at that point in the draft, a lot of GMs are just making nepotism picks at that point.

So he made the right decision, is what I'm saying.

ZoSo_the_Crowe: Pretty good for a guy with presumably very little warmup.

Most physically gifted QB in the history of the game. His ceiling is unlimited.


Wow. That's a pretty bold statement, you don't work for the KNBR morning show, do you?

Not taking anything away from him, but it's a pretty small sample size to be throwing out the History Of The Game flag.

Wow, a guy who was drafted into MLB as a pitcher and was all-state in CALIFORNIA as one, is known in the NFL for throwing heat on every single pass and that his problem is that he doesn't consistently exhibit the ability to put touch on his passes can throw fast?

 

mactheknife: Rumor has it that the Marlins offered him a contract immediately afterward, but Kaepernick said he only signs with professional organizations.


Explains why he didn't sign with the Cubs when they drafted him.

For a professional quarterback, that shouldn't be considered much of an accomplishment
