The San Francisco 49ers have already had an up close look at him and now the Oakland Raiders want to take a looksie as well.

Al Davis and company will reportedly workout Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who worked out for the 49ers last month.

The strong-armed Kaepernick has a lot to appeal to Davis. He is an incredible athlete and he likes to throw the ball deep.

Some have questioned Kaepernick's long delivery but the quarterback recently spoke with the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows and told him most teams are not concerned with it.

Kaepernick is expected to go somewhere in the beginning of April's draft. The Raiders are without a first round draft pick and they don't select until No. 48, three picks behind the 49ers.
