*This is not intended to be a bash Alex Smith thread. However, I think most of us agree that he is not a Peyton Manning, Tom Brady type QB.
Smith showed signs of improvement this year, but all QB's look better when they have good protection. I have read other fans that speculate that McCloughlin will not take a OT or OG with 1st round selections, but those picks will help Smith look good. Also, with all of the runs that were stuffed at the line of scrimmage, an Oline upgrade will obviously help the running game as well. Singletary has made it obvious that the Oline needs a major upgrade, so I think assuming that he's targeting Oline is a safe assumption.
Simple question, will McC's link to Smith encourage him to target Oline early in this draft?
