Who will be the 49ers quarterback Week 1 of the 2016 season?

There are plenty of options out there, some intriguing, some awful.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback situation is fluid right now. Colin Kaepernick remains on the roster, but seems destined for a trade. Blaine Gabbert is reportedly a favorite of Trent Baalke. Thad Lewis likely has the Chip Kelly seal of approval. And of course, there's Dylan Thompson.

The team has cap space and draft picks to potentially add multiple quarterbacks in free agency or the 2016 NFL Draft. Maybe they draft Jared Goff or Carson Wentz. Maybe they signed Robert Griffin III or another quarterback. There are a whole lot of options.

While we continue to wait for some kind of resolution to the Colin Kaepernick situation, I figured why not present everyone with a question. Who do you think will be the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback when Week 1 of the 2016 season arrives? I've included four specific players, and then two general options that cover the other options out there. Who will it be?
