The Chicago Cubs drafted San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick in the 43rd round of the 2009 MLB Draft. He was only offered just one NCAA scholarship for an FBS school (none for FCS, even though he had a 3.5 GPA), Nevada. However, last night he ran into the NFL record books with 181 rushing yards, the most for a quarterback ever for a single game (regular season or postseason).

Kaepernick threw an INT for a TD, shrugged it off, then lit up the scoreboard. 4 total TDs and multiple huge runs later (some of which were for touchdowns), Kaepernick helped his 49ers finished off the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round contest, 45-31. Kaepernick’s field-stretching velocity fits the dynamic weapons Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, LaMichael James, Frank Gore and Randy Moss.

Colin Kaepernick was the 6th QB selected in the 2011 NFL Draft.
