Golden Nuggets: The QB Situation

The NFL Combine is now over and the Niners decision makers were able to evaluate the players that could potentially help turnaround the franchise. The team has needs at most positions, so the combine allowed them to grade their potential draft picks. The position with the biggest question mark continues to be QB.

The news about Colin Kaepernick has changed almost on a daily basis. Earlier last week, news was that the 49ers were expecting Colin back on the team for the 2016 season. Trent said that he expects Colin to be on the team's roster on April 1st. Chip Kelly said that Colin wanted to be a part of this team and is excited to get healthy and going . A day later, it was reported that Colin's agents had requested a trade from the team and was expecting the team to grant him the ability to seek a trade. The situation with Kap will continue to be a development until the April 1st deadline, when his $11.9 million contract is guaranteed another year.

Regardless of the Kap situation, the 49ers will definitely be in the market for a QB. With the 7th pick in the draft, the Niners have the option to pick a QB and one of either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff are expected to be available at #7. Will the team select one of those 2 QBs if they are available? Or will the Trent wait until later in the draft to grab Connor Cook, who Trent has reported high interest in? The team could look to shore up the defensive side of the ball and wait until the later rounds to select a QB they can groom.
