The emergence of Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson – two of the youngest quarterbacks in the division – over the second half of the 2012 season has changed the complexion of the quarterback position in the NFC West. The 49ers and Seahawks now have two of the hottest up-and-coming multi-threat QBs in the NFL, and that moves them to the head of the class in their division at the position.
