Chip Kelly compares Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert saying they are similar

Colin Kaepernick could be on the way out after all

Colin Kaepernick will likely remain with the 49ers but is his play similar to Blaine Gabbert

A few years ago Colin Kaepernick was playing like an All-Pro, and now he is competing with Blaine Gabbert the former first round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Chip Kelly is impressed with the two players and says he cannot see a lot of differences between the two.  This is what Kelly said on 95.7 The Game:

They’re similar. They have a similar skill set,” Kelly said, via “They’re both 6-foot-4-plus. They both can really run, which will help keep plays alive. Obviously, we’re not a quarterback-run offense, but if the quarterback can run, you can use a little of that to your advantage. And they both have extremely strong arms. So, from a skill set standpoint, the two of them are kind of cut out of the same mold.”

At the end of the day, the 49ers better hope that Kap wins the starting job, because I am not sold on Gabbert.
