Podcast: Sando on Rd. 1 in NFC West

By ESPN.com staff

Mike Sando shares his thoughts on how the division fared in the first round of the NFL draft and explains why the 49ers should find out once and for all whether Alex Smith is the answer at quarterback.

Put on the spot, Sando gave the 49ers a slight edge over the Cardinals as the 2010 division favorite, at least for now. Sando's favorite part: accidentally referring to Karlos Dansby as Carlos Daniel, a basketball player he covered in the Pac-10 years ago. Hey, it was a late night.
