Notwithstanding his stellar record on the field, Colin Kaepernick had garnered little to no interest from Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) programs across the country. One of the reasons for that had been his build in the senior year: He was 6′ 5″ tall but weighed a mere 170 pounds. Major League Baseball’s website named him as one of the draftable candidates in the class of 2006. As a college junior, He had been picked by the ‘Chicago Cubs’ in the 43rd round of the Major League Baseball Draft in 2009, but He had chosen to remain with Nevada and continued to play football. In his sophomore season, He had been the year’s only NCAA quarter to pass for 2,500 or more yards. He had played the ‘Humanitarian Bowl’ despite an ankle injury and created a record with 370 yards passing. At the opening of his senior year, He topped the list of active college football players in rushing scores. In December 2010, He had received his bachelor’s degree in business management. He had scored his first career goal in his second season with the 49ers against the New York Jets. On November 19, He had taken the field as exciting quarterback for the first time against the ‘Chicago Bears’ and had played a pivotal role in the team’s 32-7 victory.
