Colin Kaepernick shows why he was leader of Wolfpack

Published on March 24, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has gone from virtually unwanted to a high-round draft prospect, and his workout at Nevada’s outdoor pro day on Tuesday further boosted his stock.

Kaepernick, one of 14 players working out on FieldTurf, was very impressive during his 40-play session in front of 26 teams. Jaguars quarterbacks coach Mike Sheppard and Panthers quarterback coach Mike Shula were among those in attendance while Kaepernick ran through his drills, which were scripted by former Cal coach and NFL offensive coordinator Roger Theder.

Kaepernick measured 6-foot-4 7/8 and weighed 228 pounds. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers.

He has had two private workouts for NFL teams and has five more scheduled. The consensus among those present was that Kaepernick, a player whom no school except Nevada recruited coming out of high school, probably will be a second-round draft choice next month.

The Wolfpack had four other players of note at the pro day.

Tight end Virgil Green measured 6-3 1/2,weighed 252, and stood on his combine numbers. Green also had a very good workout and did not drop one of the 15 or so passes thrown to him.

Defensive end/outside linebacker Dontay Moch measured 6-1 7/8, weighed 245 and stood on his combine numbers as well. He also did position drills.

Running back Vai Taua measured 5-10 and weighed 214. He improved upon his combine numbers in every category, except the vertical jump, which he stood on. He clocked 4.69 seconds and 4.76 in the 40-yard dash, had a 9-foot-8 broad jump, a 4.30-second short shuttle drill, a 7.05 3-cone clocking and he bench pressed 225 pounds 24 times.

Wide receiver Moe Patterson, who was not invited to the combine, measured 6-1 1/2 and weighed 190. He ran 4.41 in the 40 twice, had a 30-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot broad jump, a 4.29 short shuttle, a 7.51 3-cone and 21 reps.
