According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the Titans worked out Kaepernick on Nevada’s campus Tuesday afternoon. Two high-ranking club officials were on hand, in addition to offensive coordinator Chris Palmer and quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains.
Kaepernick made 50 throws and worked predominantly under center, where he excelled at January’s Senior Bowl. Per the source, Kaepernick feels “just as comfortable” in pro-style formations as he did in Nevada coach Chris Ault’s Pistol Spread offense.
Kaepernick isn’t even halfway through a busy week.
He had a private workout for the Cleveland Browns on Monday. On Wednesday, Dolphins officials will fly to Nevada to work him out. Kaepernick will wrap up the week with Thursday and Friday private workouts for the Broncos and Chiefs.
The Titans will take another lengthy look at Kaepernick during an official, team-facility visit in April.
As for Kaepernick’s draft stock, it seems to be teetering in the late first- to early second-round range. Our latest mock had Kaepernick out of the first, but going 34th to Buffalo after the Bills picked Von Miller third overall. If a quarterback-needy team misses out on a signal caller with its first-round pick, however, it could consider trading back into the 20s for a strong-armed, athletic passer.
Russ Lande of The Sporting News ranks Kaepernick as the No. 2 quarterback in the draft, behind only Blaine Gabbert.
