I don't know, it could go either way, my opinion on smith is that he lacks the skill set and decison making of a top tier qb. In my opinion many of the mistakes last year came from his lack of skills that he should have picked up in a much lower level of football basics, but that is just one opinion. Can he improve on this, yes, but in my view already making it to the pros, a qb should already have a level of aptitude to the game. Sam Bradford, for example, as a rookie, he looked very crisp to me, having an 18td/15int season off of one 700yd and one 600yd WR, is really good in my view of a rookie qb, considering these WRs are at best average. In comparison to Smith's 1td/11int season as a starting rookie, with current pro bowler Brandon Lloyd. It's hard to see Smith as a top tier qb, at least to me. I'm just going to leave it to the experts Jim Harbaugh and Jed York, I wish them the absolute best and hope this is the direction the team needs to go, I don't know what their agendas are or what the plans are for this team, but my view greatly differs from at least what is going through the press.
