I think it would put the gorilla on his back. If we take a QB #1, I believe we need to go hard after Alex Smith. Before people kill me for saying that, I don't think Alex is the answer at QB. I do think he would be an excellent mentor for someone like Geno because he did go #1 and he had a very hard road during his first few years in the league. He obviously did a good job mentoring Kapernick and I think he would do a good job helping Geno come along.
