There has been a lot of talk about who will be quaterbacking the redskins in 2012. Weve heard Peyton Manning (makes no sense).We have heard Matt Flynn and even Sam Bradford at one point before jeff fisher was hired. while I am in the trade up club I do understand that come draft day this might not be possible . So I deiceided to throw on emore name into the mix. Just for the sake of different conversation. my bold perdiction is that the 2012 starting quaterback for the Washington Redskins will be ........
Collin Kaepernick thats right i said it the first round pick soon to be bench warmer for the San Fransisco 49rs. I think out of all the current player options out there. Collin Kapernick would be the cheapest as far as contract and trade value go for the redskins to aquire. As a back up with no tape he cant be worth more than a 2 or 3d round pick . He is still young at 24 years old and still has the ideal size 6"5 233lbs that you look for in a qb. I personally think hes got a ton of upside and potential looking back at his college career.
Here is some backround on him from wiki
On November 26, Kaepernick led his team to a 34–31 overtime victory against the previously undefeated Boise State Broncos, snapping a 24 game win streak that had dated back to the 2008 Poinsettia Bowl. This game was played on Nevada's senior night, the final home game for Kaepernick and fellow notable senior running back Vai Taua. Nevada Head Coach Chris Ault would later call this game the "most important win in program history." During this game, Kaepernick surpassed 1,000 rushing yards for this season, becoming the first player in NCAA history to have over 2,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing for 3 consecutive seasons. Along with Taua's 131 yards rushing in the game, the duo became the NCAA's all time leaders in rushing yards by teammates (8,285) passing the legendary SMU "Pony Express" duo of Eric Dickerson and Craig James (8,193).
On December 4 against Louisiana Tech University, Kaepernick joined Florida's Tim Tebow as the second quarterback in FBS history to throw for 20 touchdowns and run for 20 in the same season. Later that same evening, Auburn's Cam Newton joined Tebow and Kaepernick as the third. Kaepernick's three rushing touchdowns in that game also placed in him in a tie with former Nebraska QB and Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch for most rushing TD's in NCAA history by a quarterback with 59 in his career. Nevada claimed a share of the WAC title after defeating Louisiana Tech.
Kaepernick is the only quarterback in the history of Division I FBS college football to have passed for over 10,000 yards and rushed for over 4,000 yards in a collegiate career. Kaepernick is also the only Division 1 FBS QB to have passed for over 2,000 yards and rushed for over 1,000 yards in a single season three times in a career (consecutively).
I think I would actually prefer to grab him for a 2nd than take a chance on someone falling to us in the 2nd .
