When I look at how these Scouts and Analysts regard a QuarterBack, I don't give a rat's ass about how far he can throw it on a wire, or how fast he runs the 40: Anyone who thinks that those Skills are the most critical ones in assessing a QuarterBack's ability to lead a team to a Championship have overlooked the last 90 years of History.
When I look at how these Scouts and Analysts regard a QuarterBack, 90% of my evaluation derives from comments on his Processing Speed, his Decision Making, his Field Vision, his Pocket Presence, and his Mechanics.
An exciting player with phenomenal skills, it remains an open question ~ to me, at least ~ if Colin Kaepernick's best Pro position is QuarterBack, or if he would be best be served as a Wing Back or even Wide Receiver.
Still, there's no question that as a QB, he commands an intoxicating blend of FirePower, Speed, and Leadership. I'd say he's about a 4th Rounder, give or take, for a team that's willing to invest time in refining his considerable skills, which have not had much opportunity to develop in The Pistol.
