I bet the 49ers trade back from that spot and let the Cardinals or Jets jump up to get one of those QBs.
I dont think its all that crazy .... Alex Smith is a proven NFL starter at the QB spot. His 2011 season was great - only 5 INT's in 16 starts (445 attempts) , I believe that tied an NFL record.
Thru 10 games in 2012 he was even better than 2011 posting a QB rating of 104.1 and a 70+% completion percentage prior to the injury and the decision to stick with Kaepernick
Ive gone on record as saying I didnt think any of this years QB crop was of NFL quality - I stand by that statement.
I'd take Smith over any QB in this years draft .... (next year is a totally different story).
