Power Ranking every Quarterback the Detroit Lions will face in 2015

8 of 14

Dec 28, 2014; Santa Clara, CA, USA; San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7) drops back for a pass against the Arizona Cardinals during the third quarter at Levi

42. 2014 Stats: 3,369 Yards, 19 Touchdowns, 10 Interceptions. Quarterback. Nevada. Colin Kaepernick. 7. player

Despite the way it may have looked, Kaepernick didn’t have that bad of a year. Sure it was bad by the lofty standards he is unfairly held to, but overall it could have been a lot worse.

When I say unfair, I mean that for some reason Colin Kaepernick is expected to be a top-tier quarterback that wins Super Bowls and headlines Pro Bowls, when in fact Colin is a good, but not great, middle of the road type of guy. He is more on par with the Cam Newtons or the Alex Smiths of the NFL.

But nevertheless, this man can hurt you. Especially if he decides to take off on foot. If the read option craze would have lasted more than a year, then we are talking about one of the best of the best.
