Smith reminds me of Trent Green. Maybe not as good, but I think that's his ceiling for his next team.
Surround him with a good line and good players and he can be a good QB. Surround him with shit? He'll be shit.
Harbaugh helped Smith regain his confidence...before his injury he was playing GOOD football.
I in no way, shape or form want Alex Smith but lets not pretend he's Matt Cassel. I want GSIII just as much as the next guy.
He reminds me a bit of Jeff George, who actually played some pretty impressive football at times in his career when he was surrounded with the right players and the right coaches.
Of course, that's no way to select a QB, so... yeah.
