Alex Smith

Alexander Douglas Smith is an American football quarterback for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League. He played college football for the Utah Utes, where he was named the Mountain West Conference Player of the Year in 2004 and led Utah to a victory over Pittsburgh at the 2005 Fiesta Bowl, finishing in the national top-five. Following his college career, Smith was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the first overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. During his first six seasons for them, he played for a different offensive coordinator each year, and struggled with injuries. Under head coach Jim Harbaugh in 2011 however, Smith enjoyed his strongest statistical season, leading the 49ers to their first NFC West division title and first playoff victory since 2002, along with their first NFC Championship Game appearance since 1997. The following season, Smith sustained a concussion in the middle of the season and was replaced by Colin Kaepernick.
