I just realized something. Daniel Jones is Alex Smith. They have near identical measurables, (size, combine numbers). They have the same strengths (intelligence, character, accuracy, good athleticism) and weaknesses (arm strength, big play ability). 

A turnover-prone Alex Smith... *shudders*

lol he's what Alex Smith is, not what people thought Alex Smith was. Still, even if he turns out to have a similar career to Alex Smith, that wouldn't be disappointing as a #6 pick. It just wouldn't be great. 

to be fair, Alex had a really strong arm and incredible deep ball accuracy until he separated his throwing shoulder, came back 3 weeks later, played through it for a month or so (with a terrible OL, taking a ton of hits) until he sought a second opinion, had surgery and missed the rest of the season plus the entire season the following year. After that his arm wasn't as good. 

Not to mention, the absolute worst position to be thrown into as a young QB. Those niners teams back then were a complete joke from ownership, to coaching, to supporting cast. Not many human beings could have made it through the way he did to be honest
