Trent Baalke on Colin Kaepernick rehab process, with Garrett Celek saying Blaine Gabbert 'taking control'

The quarterback competition is far from determined, but Blaine Gabbert might be gaining an early upper hand as Colin Kaepernick continues his rehab process. San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke made an appearance on SiriusXM NFL radio Wednesday morning, and he had a chance to discuss quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He clarified the kind of throwing Kaepernick is currently involved in, but otherwise did not add a whole lot to the situation. We've got five guys on the roster right now, at that position, and we're gonna work through it. Kap's doing an awfully good job with his...

Colin Kaepernick has resumed throwing a 'bit'

It is a slow process, but Colin Kaepernick continues his progress back to the field. The San Francisco 49ers are continuing phase 2 of their offseason workout program this week, and Matt Barrows had an interesting update on Tuesday. A source told him that Colin Kaepernick has begun throwing a "bit", and "doctors are expected to clear him by the end of the month or soon thereafter." That timeline fits in with what we've heard much of the offseason. Back in early April, Mindi Bach reported that Kaepernick needed at least one more month before he would be football ready. The team continues...

Athleticism and size: What new QB Jeff Driskel brings to the table

With four quarterbacks currently on the roster, the 49ers add another: highly athletic and very mobile Jeff Driskel, who spent time at Florida and Louisiana Tech. Does that sound familiar? There are many questions at the quarterback position for the San Francisco 49ers, and things didn't become any more clear with the addition of Jeff Driskel. The 49ers spent a sixth round pick on a former Florida QB that was tapped the next "Tim Tebow" early in his career. He is somewhat similar to another quarterback on the 49ers roster, Colin Kaepernick. Driskel is 6'4 231 lbs, with 33 1/2" arms, while...

Broncos ditch Kaepernick deal, draft Paxton Lynch

Unable to hammer out a trade for the 49ers Colin Kaepernick, the Denver Broncos turned instead to Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch, who they traded up five spots to draft No.

2016 NFL Draft results: Broncos trade up with Seahawks, pick Paxton Lynch

And that might end any chance of a Colin Kaepernick trade. And we have the first big quarterback maneuver of the 2016 NFL Draft. The Denver Broncos traded with the Seattle Seahawks to move up from No. 31 to No. 26. The Broncos used that pick to select Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch. Jared Goff and Carson Wentz were long expected to go early in the draft, and the Rams and Eagles moves up to 1 and 2 locked that in. The question then became what would happen with the rest of the quarterbacks. Well, we have our first of what will be many answers. The Broncos decision to draft Lynch could very...

Anthony Davis deletes tweet about 49ers medical staff

Anthony Davis is clearly pissed off. And if he has specifics, then so be it. But this tweet then delete is getting old. Prior to the start of the San Francisco 49ers offseason workout program, I figured Colin Kaepernick was the likely candidate to pull a Costanza to try and force his way out of the organization. Turns out Anthony Davis is that person. The retired right tackle tweeted on Thursday that the 49ers should draft a tackle in the first round, and that he did not want to work with a front office or anyone else who doesn't seem to want to win as bad as him. Well, he added and...

Cowboys 2016 Draft: What The Team Needs Going Into Day One

Drafting Best Player Avaiable is a nice idea, but there can be no improvement without introspection. Assessing the team needs position by position. The 2016 NFL draft is here. Tonight the festivities kick off with round one. How will the Cowboys approach the three-day event? Every year we hear the same refrain. "Just take the best player available."  And it is the ideal of every draft. But without an accurate understanding of where the team can improve, improvement becomes random and happenstance. Every plan begins with an assessment of areas of need. The Dallas Cowboys have many areas for...

Video of Colin Kaepernick, Chip Kelly, and more at 49ers minicamp

The 49ers are closing out their first minicamp on Thursday. Video and pictures are emerging from the session. The San Francisco 49ers are holding the third and final day of their voluntary minicamp on Thursday, and media were allowed to observe the session. Teams with a new coach get an extra 3-day minicamp in April, and attendance sounds pretty solid for the 49ers session. Media on hand shot some video from the practice. We got some actual footage of Colin Kaepernick. He is rehabbing his shoulder injury, so he was primarily shadowing the other quarterbacks, and working without a football....

Another NFL Mock Draft from Another Stampede Blue Writer

Stampede Blue's Stephen Reed takes a final swing at mocking the first 3 Rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft. Since last year my final mock draft was done more than a week prior to the actual draft and many things changed, I decided to wait until the day before the draft in case some of the other Stampede Blue writer's decide to compare our accuracy again. You will not fool me this time! Ok, ok, on to the good stuff. As per usual, I won't be 100% right on this but this is my best guess based on my own analysis of best player available and team needs at each selection. Also, there are no trades...

Report: Trade for quarterback Colin Kaepernick by Sunday is unlikely

Despite reports stating that the 49ers could trade Kap, it doesn't appear it's for Kaepernick. According to 9NEWS Denver's Mike Klis, a trade for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick by the end of the draft/Sunday is unlikely. Klis goes on to say that while a trade isn't impossible at this time, neither side has had any talks recently. Hearing Broncos trade for Colin Kaepernick by Sunday not likely. Not impossible but there have zero talks. #9news #9sports — Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) April 27, 2016 It was reported earlier today that 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke said that it was...
