10. Alex Smith, QB
Situation: Unrestricted free agent with a one-year deal on the table with San Francisco
Pros: Smith has grown up plenty during his six seasons with the 49ers, and he's the team's best option at quarterback once the lockout ends. Although he has been blamed for many of the team's failings during his tenure, he's still athletic and smart enough to be a productive NFL quarterback. His willingness to help second-round pick Colin Kaepernick -- the team's quarterback of the future -- learn the offense also earns Smith points for leadership.
Cons: Smith seemed to be turning the corner when former coach Mike Singletary named him the starter in 2009, but things fell apart last season. Smith's biggest problem is that he has never been consistent, and after six seasons he's run out of excuses for his shortcomings (including all the coaching changes he has endured). Some people suspected he would've been better off with a fresh start on a new team two years ago. It's starting to look as though those people were right.
Prediction: New 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has offered plenty of praise for Smith since taking this job in January, but we all know where this is heading. Smith will run the team for one more season, then hand the reins over to Kaepernick.
