“No threat to pick up yards with his feet.”

That’s the draft report for Matt Barkley when he was coming out of USC in 2013, but it could have been written of most of the four quarterbacks on the 49ers roster. Consider these college rushing totals:

* Brian Hoyer: minus-205 yards

* Barkley: minus-113

* C.J. Beathard: 429 (including minus-13 as a senior)

* Nick Mullens: minus-210

Now compare those figures with those of Colin Kaepernick, who ran for 4,361 yards at Nevada and became the first player in Division I FBS history to throw for more than 10,000 yards and rush for more than 4,000 yards.
