On Wednesday night's Yahoo SportsTalk Live Blitz, Jim Kozimor asked the panel the following question: "True or False: Kaepernick will never become an elite QB in the NFL?"
Dan Dibley: "That is true. He will never become an elite quarterback in the NFL ... There's no way. You have to have elite skills as a passer. Ultimately, it's a passing league, and as his legs begin to wear out later in his career he's gonna have to rely on his arm ... He's a great running quarterback, an elite running quarterback, but when it comes to sitting back and throwing for 400 yards, he's not gonna be able to do it, thus he is not elite."
Marcus Thompson: "I'm riding with Kaepernick. I say it's false. He will become elite. He has a talent that you just don't find. I think the quarterback position is changing ... the new quarterback is a guy who can be mobile, make plays with his feet and with his arm. In the end he will be judged by wins ... if he keeps this up he'll be elite."
Mark Purdy: "I'm gonna say false. He can become one ... Colin Kaepernick is 26 years old ... it's too early to pronounce it one way or another. But with the arm Kaepernick's got, he does need to learn some techniques in terms of throwing, but with the raw material he has, and with the competitive nature he has, coaches love that, if he pays attention to the coaches he can get there."
