2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jul-06-2014 by Brad Kruse
DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK: Kaepernick's first full season as a starter was a little disappointing. He did break the 300-point barrier, but many envisioned much more. His completion percentage dropped from 62.4- to 58.4-percent. His yards per attempt dropped from 8.3 to 7.7. His rushing touchdowns dropped from five to four despite playing more games. His interception rate also nudged up from 1.4- to 1.9-percent. In summary, Kaepernick suffered some growing pains while the league adjusted to him. It wasn't all bad, though. His 21 passing touchdowns on 416 attempts (5-percent) is a reasonable conversion rate and better than some of the bigger name quarterbacks. This team doesn't look like they're going to open up the offense significantly, despite their claims. His receivers are clearly capable of supporting a small increase to the passing game with a healthy Michael Crabtree and newly acquired Stevie Johnson on board. Given his current ADP (QB10, 82.63 ADP), he has an opportunity to outperform his draft position. He has the kind of upside that you should look for from one of the last QB1s drafted.

|11.09||#9 World Ranked Player - Kaep in the 11th was too good to pass up. Didn't want the other guys to scoop on his value. QBs do go down and I'll have a solid QB2.|

|10.05||#28 World Ranked - I probably should have waited longer at QB, but I like Kaepernick's improved weapons to go along with his very productive legs. He's likely to punch in some rushing TD's as well.|
