Kaepernick Eager for First Offseason

Posted by Scott Kegley on April 30, 2012 – 3:57 PM

Colin Kaepernick is going into his second season in the NFL, but this will be his first offseason.

Because of last year’s work stoppage, many of last year’s rookies were at a disadvantage at the start of training camp, but there are no such limitations this time around.

Monday marked the start of the 49ers “Football School,” meaning players went through non-contact football drills to work on fundamentals and alignments.  And Kaepernick was eager to take advantage of the opportunity.

“It felt good to be back out there, having the teammates around,” Kaepernick said. “It’s a lot more comfortable being my second year and actually having an offseason to work.”

Even though contact is prohibited during the drills, there is still plenty to be gained from the on-field sessions.

“You get to work on the fundamentals,” Kaepernick explained. “You get to get your drops down, your steps down in the run game, start working on checks and audibles.”

The second-year quarterback was also able to throw passes to a player he admired growing up. Being 10 years younger than Moss, Kaepernick admitted it was a surreal feeling to throw passes to the 49ers new receiver.

“That’s a Hall of Fame receiver, someone I watched growing up,” Kaepernick said about Moss. “It’s great having someone like that on your team. You can see he knows what he’s doing when he’s running routes, he knows what he’s looking at. He’s just smooth out there.”

    Great to have the luxary to bring this kid along and not have to throw him to the wolves. I was around to watch Yound develop under Montana. Not exactly the same but a young gun getting time to learn is important to continued success. Go NINERS

    Free Agency, the Draft and UFA pickups this season have been absolutely phenomenal. I have a very good feeling about this season and the seasons to come. The San Francisco Fortyniners are back!

    i see them keeping Alex, Kaep and JJ, cutting Tolzien seems the best option at this time, although i think that kid can be good with time
