Re: Colin Kaepernick
Kaepernick was hardly a backup, they traded up in the second to get him and almost cut Smith last year to let him start. A valuable pick was used on him and he was intended to be their guy for the future.
I don't understand why it's so hard for some people to understand the difference between drafting a QB for the future and drafting a QB to be a backup. The latter is what we need and the latter does not require a first or second round draft pick.
