San Francisco 49ers WR Josh Morgan noted that QB Alex D. Smith's confidence appeared to grow each week last season, but he said it really sprouted when the offense got together for offseason workouts, reports Phil Barber, of The Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Morgan said, "He took total control over everything. Like with the offense, we'd go out there and half the time Alex would just run the whole thing, run the whole practice without the coaches even being there. That's what you like to see in your quarterback. You like to see him with that type of fire, take that type of leadership. I mean, he's spitting the plays out, he's explaining everything and it's just like, 'Wow. Thank you.' I'm getting excited about it." Morgan added, "I had a couple friends that played with him at Utah, and they said that's how he was at Utah. So it was like, 'Wow, that's what they was talking about.' It's just exciting to see. I'm just hoping he has that same success he had at Utah, and he's gonna really show why he was the No. 1 pick."
