View Full Version : Would You Make this Trade?

Talking to a 49er friend of mine, the topic of Colin Kaepernick came up. A year ago the 49ers drafted him in the 2nd round and Alex Smith was seen as the bridge qb for San Francisco. A year later it looks like Smith is the guy in SF. So my friend asked me if he thought the Dolphins would trade their #1 pick for the 49ers #1 and Kaepernick. So I'm throwing it out there to my Dolphin fans. I thought Kaepernick was an exciting prospect coming out and if Miami ends up signing someone like Peyton Manning they will still need a young qb with upside to groom. Thoughts?

No, that would be way too much to give up. 29 to 8? No way.

I don't think Kaepernick is any better a prospect than Tannehill or Foles.

Smith is not the guy in SF, not by a long shot. 1 pass completed to a WR? Give me a friggin' break.

Smith isn't the guy yet in SF. If he starts in 2012 & has a winning record by mid season then he will be, and Kaepernick my be trade bait then. But not yet.

Also, he hasnt done anything to warrant him being considered a swap of places in the 1st.

Yes if P.Willis comes with him!

Kaepernick did a nice job at Nevada, but he wasn't always going up against great defenses. He has nice size (6'6") but probably needs to add a little weight. Running QB's don't last long at his weight. If San Fran had a lower pick, around #15 or better, it might be worth trading ours for theirs, if they threw in Kaerpenick, but the Niners would have to throw in more to move up 20 spots in the first round. I just wish we had taken Patrick Willis over Ted Ginn, when we had the chance.

Yes if P.Willis comes with him!Now that is a pipedream:lol:

Way too far to trade down.

Now that is a pipedream:lol:

The original trade proposal was a pipe dream for any SF fan so why not, lol!

Short answer: No. Long answer: I think the 49ers willingness to trade Kaepernick this early into his development is really a ringing condemnation by his head coach. If Harbaugh doesn't want to work with him (because at this stage he's far from a finished product), then I think it safe to say not many people would be willing to take on that challenge. Furthermore, the 49ers wouldn't even harbor the notion of trading Kaepernick yet as he has not had any opportunity to show off the progress he has made the past year. We'll see a heavy dose of Kaep come preseason as the 49ers showcase his abilities, and possibly see if they have a new starter.

Alex Smith is a free agent. They might need Kaepernick to start.

They already said they're resigning Smith. Depending on the contract he gets will indicate what their plans are.

If Ireland likes CKap then I say go for it. Won't happen tho.

Smith is not the guy in SF, not by a long shot. 1 pass completed to a WR? Give me a friggin' break.

Harbaugh likes him though. Executes his offense well and manages the game. Considering Smith was signed last season then there is no question he will be resigned.

Plus Smith is only 27 and finally has abit of stability in San Fran. I can see him getting better before he gets worse. He will have that job for another 3/4 years IMO.
