If new 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is serious about keeping Smith, this could be a very good thing for the quarterback. Smith has shown flashes of promise, but his inconsistency has made him a liability. The Niners have a wealth of talent with Frank Gore at running back, Vernon Davis at tight end and Michael Crabtree at wide receiver. San Francisco has also done a good job of building a solid offensive line and the Niners offense should make great strides under Harbaugh. This year could be Smith's last chance to prove he's a starting NFL quarterback. Of the lower tier quarterbacks, he's the one who might be worth a gamble in the late rounds on draft day.
