49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has a fan in Hall of Famer John Elway. "I've always liked Colin," Elway, now the Broncos G.M., told reporters Thursday, following the second of two joint practices between the teams in Colorado. "I think he's very athletic and I think that he's a guy that will make a lot of big plays. He's doing more within the pocket, which I think, as he continues to do that, it's going to help him. He's a great athlete and he's got that big play ability to avoid things and make things happen."
