Alex Smith - underwhelming
Carson Palmer - never the same after injury but not a bad pick
David Carr - bust
Chad Pennington - 1st taken but bottom half of 1st round.
Tim Couch - bust
Only one thing to nit pick from that list.
Alex Smith 30-5 over the last three seasons - not including their current 3 game skid (30-8).
He didn't come out and light the world on fire .... but he has won a very high percentage once the light came on.
Statistically underwhelming .... Sure but bottom line underwhelming no.
