I know that Alex is ripped on here quite often, I am one of the people who is a supporter of the trade. 2nd round was steep for sure, but i think pretty highly of Alex. If you look closely at his numbers you can see that 27 of his ints and half of his lost fumbles came within his first 2 years. That was a 20 year old kid who just wasnt ready to play. Take the worst recent Chiefs team and times that by 50 and that was the team he played with his first 3 years.
Mike Nolan almost ended his career by throwing him under the bus and saying he wasnt injured when he needed his shoulder reconstructed. all the talent the 49ers have and everyone of them says he is the toughest player they know. I am pretty intrigued by what he will do. I watched all of his games at Utah and followed him, he is extremely intelligent. His mother actually was begging him to play football at Harvard but he wanted to play at a major college. He graduated in 2 years there. He knows the WC system well having been under Mike Mcarthy so there wont be a huge learning curve. I think our team has quite a bit of talent to put around him as well. Anyhow for all the bashing we have to admit he brings something fresh to our team. Smart, extremely tough, rarely turns the ball over. He is accurate and his yrd per attempt are really good which is a huge measure among NFL evaluators. Its an indication of if a QB can really read multiple defenses in a short amount of time. Even if he is dink an dunk he did it for a reason. But yes a second rounder is steep for almost anyone these days with the way the NFL goes. I just think Reid likes him as much as me.
