If you've been following my commentary, I said Givens or Jenkins were the two most underrated recievers in the draft.
Both are very similar, and I think both will turn out to be two of the best out of the WR class. Jenkins has higher marks in character, so it makes perfect sense (he must of had a golden helmet).
Don't listen to these "experts" saying he was drafted too early. Anyone that watched Jenkins knows what he brings. No WR in the entire class brings his great mix of speed and quickness.
You know what Trent and Jim mean by golden helmet? Good character guy? Team leader? 49ers type of guy?
Yep, I know what gold helmet means. AJ Jenkins is a high character guy.
For any haters out there for this pick, you are going to eat a s**t load of crow.
This dude has more explosiveness and quick twitch athleticism out of any WR in this class. Just pull up a YouTube clip and watch how fast he breaks out of cuts, its crazy.
And no thats not how I base my opinion of him. I'm an ASU fan (hence screen name), we played Illinois this year and I was amazed by him (and Mercilus) and followed Illinois through out the year. I'm more surprised that Baalke had a similar assessment then anything because so many draft sites had him low.
Early on, draft sites had this guy as a SIXTH round prospect. At the time, I had him as a 3rd rounder, and I believe MD one-upped me with having him as a 2nd rounder (MD deserves credit, he was big on Jenkins very early on). I thought Chris Givens from Wake Forest looked slightly better in college but Givens carried character issues whereas I think Jenkins would get a gold helmet from the staff.
Edit: I hope someone makes a list of the haters, I can't wait to see them all eat crow.
