49ers make a move for Colin Kaepernick

NEW YORK -- A pile of teams spent the first half of the NFL Draft's first round reaching for quarterbacks; the second day started much the same way with Andy Dalton going to Cincinnati and the San Francisco 49ers making a big-time move up the draft board to nab Nevada Colin Kaepernick.

As soon as the details of the Niners trade was announced (San Fran gave up their second-round pick, their fourth-round pick and their fifth-round pick for Denver's second-rounder), it was obvious that San Francisco had a pretty clear-cut guy they were targeting; otherwise they wouldn't give up such a bounty just to jump up nine spots in the second round.

It also gives off the notion that San Fran would've been content with both Dalton and Kaepernick, but when Cincy pulled trigger, Jim Harbaugh looked at the Titans and Redskins sitting above him, and knew he needed to make a move.

So he did.

Kaepernick was our Chad Reuter's top-ranked quarterback on the board heading into the second round, and he makes sense as a guy that Harbugh can bring in to replace Alex Smith should the de facto starter a) return and b) only last a year in his new coach's system.

The only thing that's shocking about the move, however, is that it debunks any potential rumors that the 49ers might be interested in holding off and doing their best to nab Andrew Luck in next year's draft.
