Bengals GM really wanted Kaepernick over Andy Dalton
Mike Brown, the Cincinnati Bengals owner/general manager admitted during an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer this week that he wanted to draft Kaepernick with the 35th overall pick and not Andy Dalton.
“I like [Kaepernick]. He has unusual mobility,” Brown said of his thoughts at the time.
However, the Bengals didn’t take Kaepernick though because offensive coordinator Jay Gruden was able to talk Brown out of it. Gruden felt that Dalton fit his offense better than Kaepernick did.
It was still a great pick, but it is interesting to hear the Bengals owner speaking about his guy.
