“I thought today [Smith] had an outstanding practice. I thought yesterday was really good and the day before that, and this was probably his best,” Harbaugh said.
“There’s some separation there,” Harbaugh said via CSNBayArea.com. “Alex has done a fine job. But Kaep is doing a phenomenal job. He is going to be one heck of a talent and one heck of a player.”
Smith’s practice sessions have reportedly been stronger as he gets to know Harbaugh’s system better. Smith is expected to start San Francisco’s second preseason game and it was always seen as a longshot that Kaepernick could start early in the year.
Harbaugh also mentioned the team continues to look for a third quarterback. Daunte Culpepper remains a possibility.
