Agreed
aj jenkins looked great vs northwestern....problem is that he is similarly sized to niners pressent receivers and not particularly fast...i think they get one receiver next year that is at least 6-4

From Florida Times-Union: Illinois WR A.J. Jenkins to visit #49ers (4.39 40 at combine). http://bit.ly/H99MJi
AJ Jenkins 6' 190 lbs 4.39 40

According to OTC, should be available in the 4th round at pick #125. I like him. Of course, if the only WR you want is over 6'3" tall, 210 lb+, and a long strider, than he isn't your cup of tea. He is one of the better route runners in the draft, and can get separation, which is important to Alex Smith. Oh, and he can run the entire route tree, which is more than you can say for most of the big WRs. His talent at running the routes that Alex likes to throw, and his speed is why he is a value proposition in the 4th round. If he could do all the above and was 6'3" tall, 210 lb+, he would be a first round talent.

Position on value boards:
NationalFootball Post 17th WR, #162 overall rank
Possesses average height for the position with a thin frame. However, displays a real savvy about his game when asked to find soft spots in coverage. Works his back toward the quarterback, understands angles and is always finding himself open vs. zone. Is also very coordinated when asked to adjust to the throw. Does a nice job extending his arms, plucking the football away from his frame and coming down with the catch. Displays good body control along the sideline as well, knowing where he's located, maintaining concentration and keeping his feet in bounds. Possesses good straight-line speed. Looks like a low 4.4 guy and is a potential vertical threat at the next level. Accelerates well underneath on crossing patterns and can run away from defenders in man coverage.
CBSDraftscout.com 19th WR, overall player #157
He saw immediate action in 2008 as a true freshman, playing in all 12 games, including one start (11-287-3). He started three games in 2009 as a sophomore, but saw his production drop a bit (10-123-1), missing two games with a knee injury. Jenkins started nine games in 2010 and finished as the team's leading receiver (56-749-7). However, he really emerged in 2011 as a senior, posting team-highs in every receiving category, including a Big Ten-best 84 receptions for 1,196 yards and 7 TDs.

Jenkins isn't a burner or consistent vertical threat, but he plays fast and with a degree of confidence. He is more quick than fast and covers a lot of ground in the short half of the field and is slippery after the catch. He has a lanky frame and will be overmatched physically by most cornerbacks in the NFL, but should be a solid underneath option.

Jenkins doesn't appear to have the strength or natural speed to hold up on the outside as a pro, but could develop into a solid No. 3 or 4 for a team if he becomes more disciplined as a route-runner and devotes himself to the game of football.

He had 90 catches, 1276 yds, 8 TD...I seriously doubt he'll go undrafted...if Harbaugh's interested, he should take him in 3rd rd, as #30 is almost 4th rd.

Nice post, putting all the rankings together.

I agree with Mad Dog's and Gil Brant's take on AJ Jenkins. I see him as a late 2nd/early 3rd pick.
Was supposed to be all Big 10 but kinda just fell off the radar this year along with Illinois after week 4 or 5. Then again its Illinois. I'd trade them to the Big 12 for K-State or Iowa State for that matter.
I watched AJ Jenkins play in college and his yards after catch is pretty impressive.
I am aligned with Gil Brandt? yikes, can I take it back?

Scary huh? Brandt hasn't updated his Top 100 value board since right after the combine. So there is hope MadDog
