Marcus Mariota is faster than Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick

40-yard dashes are not important for quarterbacks. But they still attract a lot of attention because they're the flashiest event at the NFL Scouting Combine. Marcus Mariota did very well, running a 4.52-second 40-yard dash, while Jameis Winston kind of flubbed it with a 4.97-second 40-yard dash. Again, this doesn't really matter: passing ability will determine the first pick. But it's high-profile. So that's why this GIF of Marcus Mariota overlayed with Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick is fun. Because Mariota blows them away, too. From Niners Nation: Being faster than two of the fastest...

Golden Nuggets: Watch Colin Kaepernick vs. Russell Wilson vs. Marcus Mariota in the 40-yard dash

49ers links for February 22, 2015. The 2015 NFL Combine got through the high profile players on Saturday, as quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers ran through the 40-yard dash and their position-specific skills drills. Naturally this allowed for some reflection on previous 40s. The folks at NFL Network have frequently put together overlapping video of different 40s, both in the same year, and over time. On Saturday, they put together a video overlaying the 40s of Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson and Marcus Mariota. They are all different players, with Kap being the particular...

Colin Kaepernick throwing with Dorial Green-Beckham [Video]

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback worked out with the noted draft prospect. Here is some video. I have a hunch this will make a few people salivate just a little bit. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is down in Arizona working out at EXOS to get ready for the coming season. He has been doing work with Kurt Warner, but his program is happening at the EXOS facility that plays host to numerous current and prospective NFL players. Former Missouri and Oklahoma wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been working out at the facility as well. He is in Indianapolis for the NFL...

The next time you think your hate tweet is just disappearing into the ether, remember that the recipient of your vitriol sees you. And he will destroy you. On Wednesday, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted this innocuous tweet about his recovery day regimen: 1000 abs…. arm workout….. 10 min straight on the jump rope…. 2 hour study session in February….. that's what we call a recovery day! — Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) February 18, 2015 Which this, ahem, gentleman took offense to, as tough guys on the internet tend to do: @Kaepernick7 @49ers ab workout won't help find open...

San Francisco 49ers 2014 roster review: Quarterbacks

We continue our position-by-position review of the 49ers' 2014 season with the quarterbacks, featuring Colin Kaepernick and two other guys we never saw. Because I'm a glutton for punishment, the first roster review we handled was ... the tight end position. In that post, we learned that there is no hope and we're all doomed, so today we're going to move to a position that rarely ever inspires conflict or strong opinions one way or another: the quarterbacks. Ah yes, a position that truly has been settled for some time, it feels like we never even discuss the guys throwing the football...

Colin Kaepernick pass protection, sack rate discussion

I'm just about ready to head off to the Dominican Republic for a week of relaxation on the beach, but I came across an interesting discussion on Monday I wanted to share with you. I don't have much to add to it, but figured it would be worth a read today. Matt Maiocco and Jeff Deeney (from Pro Football Focus) got into some discussion about Colin Kaepernick and his pocket presence. The discussion opened with Jeff's tweet about Kap's play action drop-backs: Percentage of dropbacks Colin Kaepernick has used play action: 2012 - 30.2% 2013 - 28.1% 2014 - 21.3% #49ers — Jeff Deeney (@PFF_Jeff)...

Buffalo Bills should avoid allure of the dual-threat-quarterback

Some fans want the Bills to look into acquiring RGIII or Colin Kaepernick this offseason - but a dual-threat quarterback isn't in the team's best interests. Its official: I'll never want a dual-threat quarterback in Buffalo. I know it's a very bold statement to make, especially coming from someone like me who tries to stay away from definitive statements such as this one. I must admit, my statement was a knee jerk reaction after seeing Robert Griffin III flame out in Washington, and Colin Kaepernick struggle in San Francisco. Then I was asked if the Buffalo Bills should make a play for...

49ers figure to use more read-option in 2015

According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, "A significant change" to the 49ers' offense for next season "figures to be a return to the read-option." Barrows adds that he doesn't know how much the read-option will be used, but head coach Jim Tomsula and CEO Jed York have recently mentioned a desire to get more out of quarterback Colin Kaepernick's legs. Kaepernick ran for a career-high 639 yards this season, compiling 112 more yards on the ground than in 2013 when his rushing ability was hampered by a foot injury. However, Kaepernick rushed for more than 500 yards in just 10 starts --...
