    Next Year's Backup QB

    With the whole controversy this year and Alex Smith surely wanting to move on to another starting opportunity, we will be down to Colin Kaepernick and Scott Tolzien as our only two QBs on the active roster.

    I like Colin and Tolzien looked good two preseasons ago as a member of the Chargers playing against the 49ers, but it's tough to say if he's ready for the backup job. They cut Josh Johnson who is now a member of the Browns.

    As far as I can tell they don't have a 4th string, practice squad QB.

    So what do they do during the offseason? Not many veterans want to go to a team where they know they won't start, yet Kaepernick's running/style of play tends to lead towards more injuries so having a quality backup is imperative.

    The draft always presents itself as an option to try and draft an inexpensive player to fill a roster spot. However, would you really want 3 QBs all who have less than 3 years of NFL experience, with #2 and #3 having never played in an NFL game?

    Just looking to see what people think with Alex soon to be out the door.

    Tolzein will be the back up and we'll bring in a vet for 3rd string, or vice versa

However, currently I am helping train with Derek Carr from Fresno State get ready for his pro day and the draft. I am also working with Cody Kessler, the USC quarterback.

    Screw the retread vet bs. With so few needs on this team, and so many draft picks, JH will find a diamond in the draft no matter what round it is. JH develops qb's, it's what he does. The more kids he has to develop the more likely one will shine. Plus he can do what NE does and draft a qb, develop him a bit, and then trade him for a higher pick. I see a qb in the 4th or 5th round.

    I think we will use a late pick and pick someone who matches Kaep more than Tolzien does.

    I'm assuming that it's just for the rest of the year. He's definitely an option for QB3.
