King calls Kaepernick No. 1
-- they're just seem to be some young quarterbacks really excelling all around the NFL right now what do Colin captain nick and Russell Wilson fit. Within that group. Well I think they're both have a chair salute to end -- being in the league players you know you think about how difficult it is a come from. The colleagues and play in this league as a young player deposition and to go -- We're two organizations that have expectations of going to the playoffs I think it speaks to their capability off the feel of him everything goes week. When deposition and I think yesterday on Marshall NBC sports talk and if you gave me 125. -- quarterback in the National Football League I'd want Colin Kapanen I think he has the most unique combination of size speed skill. All of any of the young guys and that includes Andrew Luck RG three and -- -- While that's quite the statement right there in practice sentiment that we really. Haven't heard it all yet what tragedies do you think give tapper that he had John guys like luck and RG three. In terms of being on top of that young quarterback group right now. Will very rarely. Do you see a guy that -- tallest column is -- 65 and have. It almost six it's like a legit guy that's that athletic. You know if you look at his calm my scores and you watch him. He is more athletic than cam knew an -- it's weird you know and for me to say that consider what the perception is what I mean here's a top tier athlete. Then he can really throw the football let go I watched him at Nevada and solid with those we may were just unbelievable you have a little raw. Coming out of college -- Jim Harbaugh has done a great job in the tool using he's had the young man and really ingratiate him in that system. Helping them understand how to play at this level and he's done a tremendous job when you look at some of the throws he made. This past Sunday night against New England Patriots goes down the field goals from Michael Crabtree a Randy Moss very few quarterbacks in the National Football League can do that. But it's because he has that big arm and that have criticism that I rate him as the number one under 25 quarterbacks right now -- the National Football League. While aren't we all know that running backs can be a quarterback's. Best friend and it's quite a battle between Frank Gore and Oakland's own Marshawn Lynch in the backfield. What's running attack it do you like better heading into Sunday's game at Seattle. Well I think both defense -- deserve credit because everyone knows -- and -- with Seattle. You know Pete Carroll don't agree exile those guys may play a salty brand of football it's interesting that you know both teams are very similar. You know well I think that certain sisco should have an advantage running the football. Them because I think they have more weapons at wide receiver -- defense -- more so concern themselves with a win win. Going against the 49ers offered the -- the Seahawks but. We look at what Seattle has done the last couple weeks they really seem to be hitting a groove and you know I I just can't talk enough about Russell Wilson you know he's the guy that you're really pushed the ball downfield and when you meet him and use him in person you that's not really what you think but. I mean an outstanding job and as they get more weapons in Seattle whereas Pete Carroll had more dynamic players on the edges they'll give -- -- better offensively. Shaun king at NBC sports thanks for the time.
