Alex Smith got into some hot water for singling-out Cam Newton with some comments, but he seems to be backtracking now.
A.J. Jenkins, star wide-out for Illinois from 2008 to 2011, was selected 30th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.
The pick was largely considered a reach by analysts across the NFL, with only the St. Louis Rams having Jenkins as high as the 49ers on their board, and most teams believing he was a mid-second-round pick, at best.

Back in May, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith was quoted saying the following:
“I could absolutely care less on yards per game. I think that is a totally overblown stat because if you’re losing games in the second half, guess what, you’re like the Carolina Panthers and you’re going no-huddle the entire second half. Yeah, Cam Newton threw for a lot of 300-yard games...
