Colin Kaepernick ranked No. 3 on NFL.com’s Top-10 quarterbacks 25 or under list.
San Francisco’s signal-caller earned the nod over Josh Freeman, Andy Dalton, Sam Bradford, Ryan Tannehill, Matthew Stafford, Russell Wilson and Cam Newton.
Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are presumably the top 2 selections.
Kaepernick earned the No. 3 spot because of his impressive 10 starts in 2012, including his impressive comeback rally that nearly earned the 49ers a victory in Super Bowl XLVII.
“Kaepernick makes difficult throws look so easy,” NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal wrote. “Early mistakes did not stop Kaepernick from squeezing the ball into tight windows requiring his considerable arm strength. His outstanding overall performance got ignored because of how the game ended.”
