Niners mini camp: QB competition

Observers at the 49ers' camp thought Alex Smith looked better than Shaun Hill and J.T. O'Sullivan in what coach Mike Nolan would like to be a three-way competition. As Smith should have. He was the first pick in the 2005 draft. Hill and O'Sullivan are NFL Europe grads. It's really between Smith and Hill, and Smith should win. The 49ers would like to resolve the starting job before the start of camp in order to give the winner time to fully learn the Mike Martz offense.
