Only thing is, is that pre season is the time for the back ups to prove their worth. You would kind of hope these 2nd stringers would play a little better. But with that being said, I agree, I think there is a solid reason why we moved up to get him at the #2 spot.He's got talent, he is just a raw and needs to sit and learn the x's and o's. If something happens to Alex we can probably get by with the college type offense he ran at Nevada. Harbaugh and G-Ro were college coaches after all. I feel there is a reason we run a different style with him. And that's because that's what he's more comfortable in at this juncture.
I also wouldn't be surprised to see a good amount of wild cat with him. Get him reps that way. He can defiantly come in and offer teams other dimensions to worry about. To me that is excite!
