Titans to Have a Private Workout with Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick

The Titans have scheduled a private workout for Nevada standout quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a league source confirmed. Kaepernick has also worked out for the 49ers and has a private workout scheduled with the Miami Dolphins at the end of the month. Kaepernick is the lone quarterback in Division I history to pass for over 10,000 career yards and also rush for 4,000 yards. Directing a spread-option offense called the Pistol, Kaepernick is the only quarterback to pass for over 2,000 yards and rush for over 1,000 yards in a single season three times.

“I had a chance to see him last summer at Peyton Manning’s Passing Academy,” NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said during a conference call. “I spent three days watching the kid throw the ball with Peyton and Eli. He’s got a huge arm. He’s a great athlete, and he’s got a big frame. The kind of guy you want to buy into. He’s the kind of guy that’s going to rise a little bit. A lot of people thought he was a third, fourth, fifth-rounder heading into the season. Now, he’s probably a second round type of guy.”
