re: Where would you draft Colin Kaepernick in a 2011 re-draft?

So, I am curious, after seeing Kaepernick last night, are you surprised that he was a second round pick? Taking Kaepernick out of the equation, here is where I'd rank these other QBs in a "re-draft". Where would you put Kaepernick on the list?
1. Cam Newton
2. Andy Dalton
3. Jake Locker
4. Ryan Mallett
5. Christian Ponder
6. Blaine Gabbert
7. Greg McElroy
8. TJ Yates
9. Ricky Stanzi
10. Tyrod Taylor
3rd right now, although to be fair to Locker, it's easier to look good for the 49'ers than it is the Titans.
On a side note, Ricky Stanzi must be really bad if he can't earn a snap for the last placed Chiefs.
