There are so many things wrong with that statement, I almost don't know where to start.
First of all, Alex Smith is a real quarterback. He isn't a glorified running back like Adrian McPherson.
Secondly, Alex Smith is much smarter than Adrian McPherson. McPherson couldn't tell you the difference between a cover 2 and a cover 4. Smith can not only tell the difference, he will make the presnap read and find the opening within 3 seconds.
Thirdly, the accuracy isn't even comparable. Smith has completed over 65% of his passes as a starter. McPherson hasn't even completed 50% of his passes as a starter.
Can our OL give him 3 seconds?
At #2 I prefer Edwards but I wouldnt be pissed if we took Smith.
The only things that scare me about Smith is his questionable arm strength and the fact that 70+% of his snaps in college were in shotgun formation.
