San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is capable of being one of the most dangerous players in the NFL because of his ability to make plays with his arm and legs. Kaepernick has tremendous speed for his size, which causes defenses to underestimate him and just plain struggle to keep up. The Green Bay Packers could tell you how fast Kaepernick is, as he torched them for 181 yards and two touchdowns in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Kaepernick is also an animal in the weight room, and believe it or not that is a concern for Niners coach Jim Harbaugh. “If you’re just talking about weightlifting and upper-body strength, yes, I think there is that fear,” Harbaugh told Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “It’s something we’ve talked about. ‘I don’t want you getting too jacked-up, Colin.’ I want some speed, quickness.” Remember, this is the same Kaepernick who supposedly gave Randy Moss the first dislocated finger of his career because of how much zip he puts on the ball. Then during Super Bowl week, teammate Michael Crabtree sarcastically commented that he would rather catch warmup passes from someone else for that reason. It may sound strange, but Harbaugh is not the first person we have heard express concern over a quarterback beefing up too much. One prominent former coach once said the same thing about Tim Tebow, so it’s not a novel idea. That being said, I’m sure every coach in the NFL would love to have Harbaugh’s problem. Worrying about a quarterback working out too much is a good concern to have.
