Colin Kaepernick has only started 10 NFL games, but he's put enough footage on tape for one former quarterback to offer lofty praise. Analyst Ron Jaworski, who played 15 NFL seasons at quarterback, made the following claim on ESPN Wednesday:
"I truly believe Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever. I love his skill set. I think the sky’s the limit."
Kaepernick, 25, still needs 13 seasons, 263 touchdowns, eight Pro Bowl selections and four Super Bowl wins to match 49ers Hall of Famer Joe Montana.
When asked Wednesday about Jaworski's comment, Kaepernick responded, "I'm working. To me, it's a great honor that he said that, very flattered by it. But at the same time, I haven't played a full season, yet."
