I have a feeling some people just assume because he has traditional throwing mechanics and is young that he's the guy.
Truth is neither Colin nor Scott are proven and will need to do that this camp/pre-season. Josh Johnson needs to prove that Tampa Bay was just a bad situation and being reunited with Harbaugh can be a boost for his career. So outside of Alex we have no idea what we have.
Because Nate Davis isn't here anymore.
Wrong. Because he is just as proven,(which is not proven at all) as the other two guys. (JJ has obviously been in the league longer, but wasnt very good and probally mismanaged in TB) and he has just as good a shot of any of them at clenching the #2 backup role. I dont care who wins the backup role, im just not one to count out a QB as tenacious as Tolzien. I think he has as good a shot as the other two and may the best man win.
The fact that he went undrafted, and we scooped him from SD, does not make him any less desirable than the other two QB's. Harbaugh wanted to sign him before he signed with SD and when he went to PS we went and got him. Harbaugh likes something about the kid or he wouldnt have gone after him twice. We will find out soon enough though, because i dont beleive Harbaugh will play favorites, and will give each QB plenty or opportunities to prove what they got.
