I think the AJ Jenkins selection has a few implications on how Baalke and Harbaugh view the current roster.
1. I think this is a huge vote of confidence for Dan Kilgore starting prospects this season. Baalke moved up for him in last year's draft, and Kilgore was a mauler in the preseason last year. We passed on a few great OL prospects, so Kilgore is now the presumed starter at RG. The only way this doesnt play out is if we trade way up in the early second round to get a OG, which seems very unlikely.
2. I think this selection also implies that Harbaugh has little faith in any of the WRs on the roster. And why should he? Harbaugh will continue to throw as many WRs he can in the mix, and whatever sticks is what he will run with. No WR is promised a starting role this upcoming season. Im starting to understand his preachings of "competition" and what it means to his coaching philosophy. Wouldnt be surprised if we draft another WR later in the draft.
3. I think it shows that Harbaugh and Baalke are highly confident in their abilities. They had determined the best player to draft in the slot where we were positioned, and were confident enough to place the name in an envelope the night before. Then, they also knew that the player would be available and they wouldnt have to move up to get him. They basically read the entire draft from the back of the line. They had their target identified and landed him.
