Colin Kaepernick Confirms He's Met With Buffalo Bills

According to Colin Kaepernick, the Buffalo Bills have met with Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the 2011 NFL Combine. Kaepernick, a senior prospect that is coming off an outstanding career with the Wolfpack, tweeted the news to a Buffalo Rumblings reader (homeslice5484) that asked that very question.

As far as I'm aware, this is the first quarterback prospect that we know the Bills have talked to in Indianapolis. (We also know that the team has shown interest in Miami cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke.)

Cameron Newton is linked to Chan Gailey as the type of dual-threat quarterback that Gailey sees as the future of the game, but Kaepernick has many of those same qualities. Over four years at Nevada, Kaepernick ran a Pistol attack that allowed him to accumulate 10,098 passing yards and 82 passing touchdowns, as well as 4,112 rushing yards and a further 59 touchdowns on the ground.

I know many here are intrigued by Kaepernick's upside; this news ought to excite you.
