Colin Kaepernick completed 16-of-30 passes for 227 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, and rushed seven times for 98 yards in the 49ers' 23-20 Wild Card round win over the Packers.

Kaepernick made his lone mistake on a floated, telegraphed second-quarter pick to Tramon Williams intended for Vernon Davis down the right sideline. Williams jumped the route and returned it 18 yards. Kap atoned with a 42-yard rushing explosion on the 49ers' next possession, setting up Frank Gore's ten-yard score. Kaepernick's 98 rushing yards were a season high. Kap's most momentous throw came on a deep-seam touchdown to Davis from 28 yards away in the fourth quarter, giving San Francisco a 20-17 lead, before engineering the game-winning drive a possession later. We wouldn't go as far as to say Kaepernick "outplayed" Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, but you could argue he did. Playing his best football of the season the past seven weeks, Kaepernick leads a piping-hot 49ers team into Carolina in Week 19.

Raiders released WR James Jones.

Jones became redundant when the Raiders signed Michael Crabtree, a younger player with similar skills. Jones became expendable when the Raiders drafted Amari Cooper. 31 years old, Jones led Oakland in receptions (73) last season, but averaged a pathetic 9.12 yards per catch. He was a sub-pedestrian slot receiver and has never been an efficient separator on the perimeter. We wouldn't be completely shocked if Jones has played his last NFL down.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians likened No. 159 overall pick J.J. Nelson to Emmanuel Sanders.

Arians, of course, coached Sanders in Pittsburgh. Sanders was also smallish coming out of college -- 5'11/186 -- but not nearly as small as Nelson, whose Pro Day weigh-in was 5'10/156. The odds are stacked against Nelson making NFL noise as a receiver. We do expect him to be an impact return specialist.

Following the draft, coach Jay Gruden confirmed Alfred Morris "will be getting the bulk of the carries."

Florida RB Matt Jones was selected in the third round to give the Redskins some depth after losing Roy Helu in free agency. "Alfred won't be affected," Gruden said. "Alfred's still the running back here. He's had three great seasons and that won't change." Morris' stock is trending up a bit with the arrival of offensive line guru Bill Callahan and No. 5 overall pick RT Brandon Scherff.

Following the draft, coach Bruce Arians said Andre Ellington "will continue in his same role."

The Cardinals did not come away with the true big back everyone expected them to. Instead, they took Northern Iowa's David Johnson -- another back that specializes in the receiving game. It's insurance behind Ellington, not someone that will threaten to steal a big chunk of work. "The nice thing David can do is he can do everything Andre does, so you don’t have to change if there was an injury," Arians said. It's a clear win for Ellington stockholders in fantasy.

Eagles signed UNLV WR Devante Davis.

Davis (6'3/220) was physically dominant in the Mountain West, parlaying 186 career catches into 2,785 yards (15.0 YPR) and 22 TDs. Davis would've reset the UNLV record books had he not missed five games with a wrist injury as a senior. Davis profiles similarly to Dwayne Bowe in his prime with 4.57 speed, a 35 1/2-inch vertical, and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. A top-notch ball tracker with sure hands, Davis has all the traits of a contributing NFL receiver with deceptive vertical ability. He is DFS aficionado Davis Mattek's favorite wideout in the 2015 class.

Lions signed South Dakota State RB Zach Zenner.

Zenner (6'0/223) was a dominant three-year starter for the Jackrabbits, becoming the first player in FCS history to post three straight 2,000-yard rushing seasons. He averaged 5.99 YPC as a senior and caught 28 passes. Behind only Ameer Abdullah, Zenner posted the second highest SPARQ score in this year's running back class, clocking 4.6-flat in Indy with a 41-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. An intelligent (35 Wonderlic) one-cut back with workhorse potential, Zenner was quietly one of the best inside runners we viewed on pre-draft tape, demonstrating impressive balance and powerful tackle-breaking skills. The additions of Ameer Abdullah and Zenner may bode poorly for Joique Bell's future in Detroit.

Profootballtalk reports LSU G/T La'El Collins "plans to sign with a team after he is cleared."

It's really Collins' only option, so it's not surprising. Collins is meeting with Baton Rouge police on Monday. Assuming that meeting goes the way it's supposed to, he could have an NFL team as early as Monday evening.

Cardinals selected Louisville TE Gerald Christian with the No. 256 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Meet this year's Mr. Irrelevant. Christian (6'3/244) spent two seasons at Louisville after transferring from Florida, amassing 64 career catches for 882 yards (13.8 YPR) and ten TDs. He managed a 4.87 forty at the Combine and is tight in the hips, limiting his route-running ability. Christian does have soft, big (10 3/4") hands and can make contested catches. As is typically the case with young tight ends, Christian needs work as a blocker, but flashes toughness to become proficient in that aspect. He likely has the ceiling of a No. 2 tight end in the pros.

Titans selected William & Mary WR Tre McBride with the No. 245 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

McBride was viewed by many as a third-round pick, but there were whispers he was a bit of a "diva" and may have an ankle issue. McBride (6'0/210) was a decorated wideout and return specialist in the Colonial Athletic Association, parlaying 196 career catches into 2,653 yards (13.5 YPR) and 19 TDs. He showed big-league athleticism at the Combine, running 4.41 with a 38-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. McBride was an elite in-air ball tracker in college, but projects as more of an intermediate weapon in the pros; he doesn't play as fast as he timed. He does have sure hands and plays with toughness, so McBride's future may be at slot and/or Z receiver plus kickoff returns.

Jets acquired RB Zac Stacy from the Rams in exchange for the No. 224 overall pick in the NFL draft.

The Jets contacted the Rams about Stacy earlier in the day. Unhappy with his place on the Rams' depth chart after the team selected Todd Gurley, Stacy now finds himself in the exact same position in New York. Like Stacy, Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley are limited power backs, but they are much better players. Ridley is coming off a serious knee injury, however, and the Jets' new coaching staff does not appear to favor Ivory. Stacy will compete for a role in camp.

Dolphins selected Boise State RB Jay Ajayi with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

A day-two talent based on tape, measurables and stats, Ajayi plummeted due to concerns over his right knee, which NFL Network's Mike Mayock has reported is "bone on bone." Ajayi (6'0/221) turned 678 college carries into 3,796 yards (5.60 YPC) and 50 TDs, adding 73 catches. He ran 4.57 at the Combine, also impressing in the vertical (39") and broad (10'1") jumps with one of the fastest 20-yard shuttle times (4.10) by a running back. On tape, Ajayi looks like Marshawn Lynch with a compact, muscular build but isn't quite as physical. More of a loose-hipped finesse back, Ajayi is an extremely aggressive runner with light feet and an ability to change speeds on a dime. Ajayi fumbled 11 times at Boise and must tighten up his pass protection, but could eventually be a three-down back if he works out the kinks and stays healthy. He's competition for Lamar Miller, but perhaps not an immediate 2015 threat.
