How do you replace Aldon Smith....with another Smith

So we need a new OLB to compete for the starting job.

March Smith out of Louisville passes the eye test and the film test. He's not as freakishly talented as Aldon but he may be a smarter player and hes faster juding by their 40 times at the combine Aldon Smith ran a 4.78. Marcus was former QB recruited to Louisville that led the nation is average sack per game his senior years. So lets go over the basics of Marcus Smith

6'3 check

251lbs check

34" arms length check

10" hands check

4.68 40 time check

He's def not as long as Aldon Smith with his 35 3/8" arms but he seems like a better overall athlete. The best part is that Marcus Smith, just like Aldon Smith played in both 2 and 3 point stances. Louisville ran a lot of stunts in their base cover 2 zone defense. Hes a lot better in coverage and gets after running backs in pursuit. Oh and the best part is that all the scouts say he has great character. He's projected as a 2nd round pick and I would hope the 49ers would move on from Aldon Smith and create our new tandem of the Smith Bros. Congratulations 49er fans. God has just threw us a cookie.
