Video: Alex Smith urges crowd to boo him during commencement speech

Alex Smith is no stranger to adversity. He's also no stranger to criticism and jeers from unruly fans.

He's come a long way since being the No. 1 pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. Injuries and poor performances haunted the beginning of his professional career before he finally got things on track a few seasons ago. Now, Smith is the undisputed starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs.

But before his NFL career he was a star at the University of Utah. Last weekend, the former Utes football player was asked to give the commencement address at the school's graduation ceremony. Smith did not disappoint and even urged the crowd to overcome fears by asking them to boo him at one point.

You can see this happen beginning at the 13:35 mark in the video.
