Morning Tailgate: Kaepernick Stays Busy

Posted by Taylor Price on February 28, 2013 – 10:22 AM

It doesn’t seem like Colin Kaepernick is taking time to rest and relax this offseason. It’s not a shocker, either. The San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback appeared at an award show, began working out with teammates at a training facility in Atlanta and recently took part in an event hosted by the first lady, Michelle Obama.

Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign received help this week from Kaepernick, plus Olympic athletes (Dominique Dawes, Gabby Douglas, Allyson Felix) and tennis star Serena Williams among others.

Details of the event, shared by The Washington Post, touched on Mrs. Obama’s quest to help schools become more active in saving physical education programs nation-wide. Kaepernick, an example of physical condition, has proven to be a strong force in the community, not just on the football field.

The 49ers quarterback will also appear on NFL Network on Thursday at 3 p.m. PT to join the network’s “Path to the Draft” show.

Yahoo! Sports’ Shutdown Corner Blog has the 49ers drafting Ohio State defensive lineman Jonathan Hankins with the No. 31 overall selection in their latest mock draft.

Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com examined the risers and fallers post-NFL Scouting Combine.

Russ Lande of The National Football Post discussed nine players who struggled at the combine.

49ers.com announced the 2012 team award winners, led by Justin and Aldon Smith.



Stronger than you think.

    We have great talent and ability at corners; what a blessing it would be to have Darrelle Revis as a leader and teacher by example to help develop the RAW talent we have into shutdown guys ! We could use him NOW, and we have the goods to trade for him that would help the Jets; can it be ? We shall see, and we are positioned to get at least one, maybe two, standout D linemen in the draft . Come on Baalke, Harbaugh and company, we’re trusting in you to pull it off ! Invite Revis out to visit the City – the City by the Bay ! SAN FRANCISCO BABY, San Francisco 49ers !!!

    I know Darrelle Revis makes the big splash, but don’t under-estimate Sean Smith (6’3″ 218 lbs) free agent corner with Dolphins with swagger. He would cost less without having to give up high picks. Revis sounds good but remember how excited Philly was about Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha. Remember now Revis had ACL surgery and is asking for the bank. So curb the giddiness a tad. It sounds good but they will do their homework. For the record Sean Smith is one of the best unknowns. Revis is the household name. I would like both but I would be thrilled with Smith. With Revis, I will have concerns especially with his price tag. We can package picks to move up for a monster rusher opposite Smith.

    I still think Chris Culliver is a future star! He will get better.

    i’m w/ u on this @dave g. culliver needs help in that area, we need physical and strong corner,i’m not counting much on revis,its costly, but i guess the door is open 4 him, if his smart enough then he can go w/ us, much of a change to have a ring, thats everyone’s dream as a nfl player….but will see , whats on Jh & trent s mind, can’t hardly wait for the F.A. to open………………and of course draft day……..pa$$ rush is also a pot hole we need to fill…..either way those position is as needs….then i can say will go all the way…..

    Jeżeli oczekujesz, że powiem ci o strasznych efektach zdrowotnych palenia, o tym,
    iż palacze wydają fortunę w toku całego życia na papierosy,
    iż jest to odrażający zaś upiorny uzależnienie dodatkowo iż jesteś laik również masz słabą wolę, to muszę cię rozczarować.
    Ta taktyka w żadnym wypadku mi nie pomogła, zaś jeśli miała pomóc tobie, to
    w tej chwili aż do odmiennej pory przestałbyś palić.
    Moja metoda, którą nazywam EASYWAY (ang.: banalny podejście – przyp.

    tłum.) nie działa w konsekwencji. Niektóre rzeczy,
    o których będę RzucaniE PaleniA ogłosił, mogą
    zakablować ci się malutko wiarygodne, jednakże, kiedy skończysz odczytywać
    tę lekturę, nie lecz wciąż w nie uwierzysz, niemniej jednak będziesz się dziwować, podczas gdy mogłeś kiedykolwiek rozmyślać inaczej.
    Istnieje fałszywe przekonanie, że sami decydujemy o
    ów, iż chcemy palić. Palacze w tym samym stopniu decydują, że chcą
    znajdować się nałogowcami, w jakim opijus stanowi się, że chce pozostać alkoholikiem, bądź narkoman, że chce się uwarunkować odkąd heroiny.
    Prawdą jest, że sami decydujemy, aby nakłonić te pierwsze danie, eksperymentalne papierosy.
    Ja także nieraz decyduję się, aby pójść aż do kina, tymczasem nie postanowiłem zegnać całego życia w kinie.

    Zastanów się z wykorzystaniem chwilę ponad swoim życiem.

    Czy kiedy tylko stwierdziłeś, iż w niektórych momentach własnego życia nie możesz rozpływać się posiłkiem czy też spotkaniem

    In case you were wondering, Karry was trying to sell something that was either a smoking substitute or a smoking cessation product.

    Since I don’t smoke, I didn’t need what she was selling.

    i’m not big on drafting a d-line guy and make him a starter..they usually need a year to grow into playing against bigger tougher pros…in college they can handle guys on o-line but in pros it’s differant…i like to see them spend money on a free agen d-line guy…t…draft a cb at 31st and d-line guy with second pick..word has it revis isn’t coming to niner nation…

    i think we should just wait and see what the staff does bcuz theyve done great these last few years and i think revis would mess with the chemistry our secondary has…IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST

    You got my full support 49ers!! We only getting better . Lets go!!! From all the way from Akron,Ohio!!! Go 49ERS!!!

    Dave G i completly agree. Having Revis would be great yes he would give so much flexibility too our D. We could put him accross from the teams number 1 and double anyone else we want but and its a big BUT is the money we would have to tie up in him. Too me its not worth it lets go grab Chris Houston and Cary Williams!! Thats 2 very good corners in their prime for less than Revis and with the extra money we could go grab a true QB rusher to rotate in our DLine like Krueger!!

    Im not worried at all about Revis injury! I have been watching his rehab and he is on the same pace that Adrian Peterson was on during his rehab. Revis is itching to get back into football shape and is pushing very very hard!! This guy will come back to the same speed, athleticism, ability, smarts take back Revis Island so if the Harballke makes the choice to pick him up I’m 100% fine and jacked about it but I don’t think they will they are too smart with the money.

    I believe Harballke will make our secondary (DBs) better. We NEED and I mean NEED too pay Goldson and get him on our team for the next 5 years. Why are you holding off Harballke? I don’t understand… Goldson is the biggest hitter in our secondary and he is a baller!!! He makes plays all over the field!!! Pay the man! If we let him hit free agency that will be the first move Harballke made that I will contest. Unless they have an anwser. Time will tell.

    Finally. All of my 14 year life, I have been wondering who will be the QB of my era for the San Francisco 49ers. I’ve seen Jeff Garcia, Tim Rattay, Shaun Hill, J.T. O’ Sullivan, Alex Smith and now Colin Kaepernick. I am so excited for the 2013 season I can’t even express it. Loaded in draft picks, CK7 to Crabtree will be the next great QB to WR combo, it’s gonna be the best season of my life! I’d like to thank Jed York, Jim Harbaugh and Trent Balkke for finally giving SF their domination back. Go Niners!
