I will trust Andy Reid here with his history of the QB position.
But it does say a lot that NFL personnel are not impressed with this class.
I would like to see them draft a QB high in the next year or two and keep Alex Smith around in the mean time.
Alex Smith signing is like Jake Plummer to the Broncos IMO. Same kind of move with the same kind of feel. Good QB coach getting an average QB to fit his system.
But Jake came into a team that had the pieces already in place around him. Alex has Charles and one career avg to below avg WR behind no OL to speak of and a D filled with one trick pony's.
