Titans send large contingent to work out busy Kaepernick

Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a Monday guest on PFT Live, appears to have the Tennessee Titans’ attention.

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.

    I like the kid, but the Sporting News scouts are usually way off on their rankings compared to everyone else.

    Colin just giggled about the attention. Then he giggled at the reporters questions. Then he giggled when someone walking by said “Hello”. Then his session was over and he had a good giggle about it. Then his agent came by to take him away, giggling into the distance…..

    He’s going to get drafted ahead of Locker and Mallett. Bet on it.

    So I guess none of these QBs should be passing Blaine. I guess Cam Newton never got the e-mail cause he wouldn’t getting the equivalant of an ass whopping by those in the sports media for daring to try.

    Good Luck Colin.

    HAHAHAHAHA, that’s a joke right?

    It says alot about these prospects when virtually NO ONE can agree on the rankings of the top QB’s.

    Mine (not that it matters)…

    Newton
    Mallet
    Gabbert
    Ponder
    Kaepernick
    Locker
    Dalton
