The Sacramento Bee reports that the Niners are looking at yet another QB, this time it’s Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick.
The 49ers are sending a notable contingent to Reno on Friday for a private workout with Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick, according to a source with knowledge of the event. Head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke are expected to be on hand. The 6-5, 225-pound Kaepernick has the strongest arm of any quarterback in this draft, and he led the Wolf Pack to a 13-1 record this past season. When the college season ended, Kaepernick was viewed as a mid-round selection. However, he showed better-than-expected touch and accuracy at the January Senior Bowl and was also was one of the better passers at the combine which has now probably elevated him to a second-round prospect.
