Report Says Niners Wanted to Move Up to Draft Kaepernick

Frank Tadych of reports league sources told NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora that the 49ers were “persistent” in trying to land Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick, exploring trade options at the end of the first round before initiating talks with the Patriots and Bills at the top of the second.

NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reported that the Raiders (with picks 48 and 81) also were in talks with the Patriots, setting up a Bay Area battle for the QB.

Presumably, the Patriots’ price for the No. 33 pick was too high. But the 49ers — who, according to LaCanfora, believed they had to leapfrog the QB-needy Redskins at No. 41 after missing out on TCU’s Andy Dalton — pulled the trigger by dealing pick Nos. 45, 108 and 141 to the Broncos for the 36th selection, which San Francisco used on Kaepernick.
