CSN Bay Area 49ers reporter Matt Maiocco said 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will have to take on more of a role with no WR Michael Crabtree to start the season. He added that Kaepernick will have to be great himself, but also make the wide receivers around him better.
Kaepernick will have WR Anquan Boldin and TE Vernon Davis, but outside of that someone will have to step up and take on more of a role whether Kaepernick makes them better or not. We rank Kaepernick 7th among QBs, but there are some concerns, mainly the loss Crabtree but also teams who have studied his weaknesses over the offseason. Kaepernick is one of many very talented QBs who will be available in the sixth round and beyond in drafts this season.
