Word out of San Fran is that last year's 1st Overall pick Alex Smith is a bust in the making.. The guy has 0 TDs and 9 INTs and multiple fumbles. To top it off, it appears his hands are too small which makes it difficult for him to hold onto a NFL regulation football.
I was very wary of Smith and am very thankful that Saban steered clear of him and didnt do something foolish like many here were suggesting and trade up for him. But this should be a lesson, dont reach for a QB out of NEED because it may end up crippling your franchise. Smith shot up by default, since Leinart stayed in school.
I trust Saban and Mueller though, particularly Mueller in terms of drafting QBs.. But I hope the scouts are dilligent even to these seemingly minute details such as hand size.
