Alfie's Player Ranking 32 out of 100
Projected Round: 1-2
Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 32nd ranked player, Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
PROS: Strong arm that can make all the NFL throws. Very good runner who can make a lot of plays outside of the pocket. Throws well on the run. Insane production in college, even for the offense he ran. Ability as a passes got better and better each season. Doesn’t turn the football over often. Leader on and off the field, his team rallies around him. Much faster than he looks and can make defenders miss when on the run.
CONS: Will really need to focus working on his footwork and setting his feet. Has a funky long wind up, but an over the top release. Wind up will get all the attention but his footwork is a bigger issue. Can be too quick to pull the football down and take off running, missing open receivers. Played in the Pistol offense and has never played under center.
