The Nevada Wolf Pack held its Pro Day on Tuesday, and the main attraction was quarterback Colin Kaepernick. A four-year starter, Kaepernick has made the first round in each of our first two mock drafts. We profiled his exceptional Senior Bowl in January.
According to a league source, Kaepernick hit 36 of his 38 throws on campus, not including a couple of drops. 25 teams were represented at the workout, including quarterback coaches from the Jaguars (Mike Sheppard) and Panthers (Mike Shula).
Per the source, Kaepernick got “great” feedback from scouts and personnel types and has lined up a total of 10 visits and/or workouts. We know for sure Kaepernick will meet or has met with the Broncos, Dolphins, 49ers, and Titans because we’ve been documenting them throughout the pre-draft process.
Tight end Virgil Green was another highly touted prospect at the Nevada Pro Day. Green stood on his Combine measurables after weighing in at what the source described as a “jacked” 252 pounds. Green caught Kaepernick’s throws in passing drills.
Kaepernick has a late first-round to early second-round projection.
Green is a potential wild card because of his dominant Combine, but tentatively projects as a third- to fourth-rounder.
