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.
