Did #49ers GM Trent Baalke see @Kaepernick7 as a franchise QB when he saw him at 2011 #NFLCombine? Quote:
"Well, it's a lot easier to sit up here after a young man's had success and say, yes, you pictured that. But there's a lot of unknowns when you draft anybody. And you look at skills sets, you look at the kid as an individual, you look at the intangibles that they bring to the table and you try to see if they fit. If they fit what you're looking for in that particular player,
in that particular position. And he's a young man who brought an awful lot to the table as you know. He came from an offense that's not a, quote, pro-style offense. And just a guy who our coaching staff really believed in, that we believed in from a personnel standpoint and it was just letting him develop and giving him an opportunity. But coach Harbaugh has done an
outstanding job with him as has (quarterbacks coach) Geep Chryst and (offensive coordinator) Greg Roman. And he's still learning, still developing."
