Strengths
Kaepernick is excellent on the move: has game breaking ability as a rusher: throws well on the move: excels at finding the open man when scrambling. Excellent arm strength and capable of making big throws downfield.
Weaknesses
Does not feel the pass rush at all: fumbles too frequently: has an elongated throwing motion and does not consistently set his feet: inaccurate on short and intermediate throws: Has yet to show the ability to master a complex passing offense:
Overall Analysis
Kaepernick is an athletic marvel who still has a lot of potential. He isn't a fit for every offense, but if he can find a home in an offense that offers him the ability to improvise and move out of the pocket, and has NFL level talent at the skill positions, unlike the 49ers in recent years, then he can still be a very good NFL starting quarterback.
