Chip Smith, founder of Duluth, Ga.-based Competitive Edge Sports, has spent considerable time with both Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick. Smith believes Kaepernick holds a slight athletic edge over Newton. "They're a lot alike in terms of being really special, and they're both extremely athletic," Smith said. "But Colin is actually a little bit better athletically. He's a little faster -- I've clocked him as low as a 4.4 (-second runner in the 40-yard dash) -- and there isn't a quarterback in this draft who throws the ball with the velocity that Colin does. Colin is a better athlete, and he understands the game better."
