No he won't. Unless you were willing to do another 7 years of Alex Smith like experiment all over again. So far CK's has shown very little. Take away where those two guys were drafted and put them side by side and ST just looks more like an NFL QB. It's been dissected to peaces in this site, but CK is too fundamentally and mechanically flawed. Too flawed IMO to ever be a good starting QB in the NFL. He sadly reminds me a lot of Alex Smith; athletically gifted, but someone that came from a weak conference, in a spread offense, who is mechanically flawed and etc. That 70 yard run was a thing of beauty, but it's going to mask, the errand/inaccurate throws, him locking on to receivers, and that awful slow delivery. If the 49ers want this guy to succeed they have wait, but I don't know if they're are willing to go that route as they did with Smith. The fact that he is in competition to be the back up QB tells me they're not.
