Jaws: Colin Kaepernick is a “special talent”

ESPN’s Ron Jaworksi believes 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is a “special talent” even though he’s yet to play a full NFL season.  He has him ranked as the 11th best signal caller in the league.

“Normally 10 NFL starts is not enough for me to evaluate a player so highly, but this kid has special talent, is a dynamic dual-threat quarterback with a power arm and outstanding athleticism,” Jaworski said.

Jaws continued to rave about Kaepernick.

“Kaepernick has a chance to be very special,” Jaworski said. “He has a complete throwing skill set with a powerful arm that I absolutely put at gun level. His ball comes out with a lot of energy and velocity. And Kaepernick can drive the ball down the field, on the move, with accuracy. . . . Kaepernick is one of the four or five most physically talented quarterbacks in the entire NFL. . . . The elite skill set is still there.”

I agree with Jaws.  I believe Kaepernick is the best young quarterback in the NFL right now.  Yes, better than Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III.  He’s more complete than any of the other players I just listed.

    Hey, JAWS you left out Cam Newton (Panthers), Michael Vick (Eagles) and your FAVORITE QB to rag on: Tim Tebow.
    These players represent the FUTURE of the NFL:
    Spread offense, no-huddle, run & shoot, chuck & duck, wait until Johnny “Football” Manziel gets in the mix.
    I know you rip on Tebow every chance you get, but hey he got screwed at the Jets keeping him on the bench despite Mark “Sackchez” Sanchez’s INTs and sack fumble/ butt fumble — you name it Mark’s done it.
    So lets take a deep breath and hope Mr. Bill Belichick can work Tebow into the offense HE HAS that something you described in 49ers QB.
    Tebow is a WINNER.
    Let’s go out there and win.
    (Oh, wait, there is no “i” in team !!

      That’s funny and sad at the same time. Pathetic and ridiculous. Tebow was washed up before he even got started.

        Yep, leave it to ?”Mr. ANONYMOUS”? to tell ME Tebow was “washed up before he got started” . Have you considered seeing a doctor over your condition?
        Tebow took the Broncos to the PLAYOFFS his second year w Denver.
        Tebow & running back(s) ground & pound. Just win baby.
        DON’T forget “MR ANONYMOUS” Tebow ran right thru powerful Chicago Bears defense (think Urlacher!) and Tebow ran right thru Steeler’s defense (Think James Harrison and Troy Palomalu) So they lost at New England IN New England. Most teams do.
        Wait til you see what Tebow’s been doing in the off season- like working with Kurt Warner. etc.
        Before you ATTEMPT to trash the guy, how about waiting until he actually PLAYS a season? The Jets did Tim no favors sitting him on the bench while Mark “Sackchez” Sanchez fumbled, intercepted, butt fumbled, sack fumbled and was a general screw up.
        Goodbye Mr. Anonymous.
        We will see what we will see–Tom Brady AIN”T gonna give up his role as starting QB and team leader.
        Tebow can catch–he has ‘hands’ and he could play Tight End, he could play Fullback (think Larry Csonka), he could play Running Back (think John Riggins).
        I’m so sorry you are a spineless, gutless, jellyfish of a 1/2 of a man who won’t post with his actual name.

        READ, think, learn. Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go thru life, son.
