Nevada’s Colin Kaepernick is one of several outstanding quarterbacks in today’s NFL Draft. Kaepernick led the University of Nevada team to national recognition the past two seasons, culminating with an upset victory over undefeated Boise State in the last regular season game of 2010.
Kaepernick received great reviews for his performance at the NFL Combine. Among quarterbacks, his throw was one of the fastest when clocked by radar gun and he had the second fastest time in the 40-yard dash. He is predicted to be picked in the early rounds of the draft. Hopefully the fact that he did not play for a Division I school won’t hinder his prospects.
Good luck, Colin! Nevadans and UNR grads everywhere are excited to see you move into the NFL.
