NFL Update – The Backup situation for 49ers’ behind Kaepernick

0 Comments

The San Francisco 49ers have their Star QB depth chart with Colin Kaepernick, the versatile product of Nevada who guided them to Playoff wins and all the way to the Superbowl. Now that NFL Update Alex Smith shipped off to the Kansas City Chiefs, start of a offseason storylines for Jim Harbaugh’s club is who they’ll have working as Kaepernick’s backup this Fall.

NFL UpdatesThe only other QB currently on the roster is Scott Tolzien. But they may have an addition in mind: via USA Today, Harbaugh has spoken with former Miami Dolphins second-round pick Pat White, and White confirmed to the paper that he’ll be flown out for a workout. White has been working with famed QB coach George Whitfield in an attempt to resurrect his NFL career.

Another possibility for San Francisco is making an addition at QB via the draft. Though the prevailing consensus on this year’s crop has been that there isn’t a player in the mix who could step in and start from Day One, the Niners don’t need a player like that — they need an understudy to Kaepernick, and one of the members of the QB class of 2013 could fit the bill.

The other option is to use one of their bazillion 15 draft picks on the position. Sure, there’s no QB prospect that’s believed to be able to step in as a Day One starter (as Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson, Ryan Tannehill and Brandon Weeden did out of the 2012 rookie class), but the Niners don’t need a Day One starter. They can draft a prospect that is of a similar mold to Kaepernick and have a similar understudy available if and when Kaepernick gets hurt.
