Colin Kaepernick

Once again, we know Luck is going back to college. Due to our situation, there seems to be alot of pressure to draft a QB. With Gabbert most likely acing his pro-day when it comes to throwing the ball to his receivers (against air), the Panthers could be easily duped into taking him with the number one overall pick. Yet that would be a mistake, as I don't see Gabbert being a great QB anytime soon. Plus, I'm sensing the same self-entitlement in his interviews as I do with Cam Newton. Depending more on his own athleticism to them through than working hard and being a student of the game.

Now the Bengals may become more desperate than we are, and make a trade for Gabbert. This would be the best case scenario, as teams who trade out of the first overall pick usually get quality value in return. If we can switch our first picks and pick up a second round pick (and potentially much more), the Panthers need not hesitate to make this deal.

With all that said, in the second or third round, we need to pick up this cat Colin Kaepernick. He has a strong work ethic, as seen throughout his college career. When his coaches asked him to improve on a certain area, he did it and succeeded. He also seems like the kind of player Steve Smith would love to tutor, and Colin wouldn't give him any back talk. (Smith would probably jump all over Newton, and who knows what would happen between him and Gabbert. Plus we just picked up Shockey's attitude.) I said it before, he is your Josh Freeman type player, in arm strength and mobility. (We saw how easily Freeman dodge CJ and the guys this year, I see Colin doing the same thing for us) So with either a second round pick or our first third, we need to get this guy. He is Rivera's "Phillip Rivers"!

He has a lot of mechanical issues that are hard to fix. It will be interesting to see how this guy pans out. I like him. But I am of the belief that generally drafting QB's after the 1st round are wasted picks.

They just don't work out that often.

I will spare you all the percentages I have splattered across this forum the last several weeks. Let's just say QB's taken after the first round rarely pan out. Not impossible. But rare.

Well, mechanical wise, the only thing he needs to work on is taking snaps under center and his foot work. He does have a little wind up in his throwing motion, but that isn't cause for concern. Let him learn the playbook and get a little work done, he should be capable of becoming a great QB. (Yet he wouldn't come in immediately and be the starter) Of course if we are in the same position next year, we are going to take Luck. If that is the case, we would let them battle it out for the starting role, and the other would be traded. (With the rookie wage scale, we wouldn't be spending much money on this kind of a situation)

Always remember, Tom Brady was a sixth round pick.

His entire throwing motion will have to be revamped. It is long and all over the place. That is a hard thing to do while keeping the great RPM's that he already has and staying accurate.

I am in the firm camp of using our first round pick on a QB or wait till next year to see what shakes out in terms of QBs
