SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers' quarterback competition features two players with different styles.
But offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said he believes both Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert are good fits for Chip Kelly's scheme.
"I think naturally every quarterback's skillsets are a little different," Modkins said on Thursday. "What's great is both of their skillsets are really great for our offense. We'll get to see more of their skillsets once we get further along in this camp. And when we get into the preseason games, they'll be able to show more."

One difference that appeared during the 49ers practices thus far in camp has been Kaepernick's willingness to pull the ball more on the 49ers zone read plays. Modkins said Kaepernick executing more of the quarterback runs has not been by design.
"Our offense takes what the defense gives us," Modkins said. "It just so happens he had a couple of those."
The quarterback competition appears to be close after Kaepernick did not take part in team drills during the spring program while he recovered from surgeries to a shoulder, ankle and knee.
"Kap's done a good job," Modkins said. "He was very visible in the spring, he was around here, doing all he could do.
"He's done all we've asked him to do so far. The competition is really just getting started. I've seen him (Kaepernick) from afar for a long time. He's a good player. And I think he's right on track."
