Scouts, Inc. Top 10 WR in the NFL

I'm pretty sure this is only updated annually and may not even take last year into account yet, but take a look if you haven't:

1. Andre Johnson
2. Larry Fitzgerald
3. Roddy White
4. Calvin Johnson
5. Greg Jennings
6. Santonio Holmes
7. Brandon Marshall
8. Mike Wallace
9. Vincent Jackson
10. Reggie Wayne

I can't help but notice that A.J. Jenkins compares very favorably to Jennings, Holmes, Wallace, and Wayne just in terms of size. He is faster than all but Wallace. And that's before we even get to his main strength: his hands. From everything I have seen and read, he seems to have the route-running and hands to turn into one of these all-around brilliant 6'0" WRs.
Meant to put this in Niner Talk. I'm sure it will find its way over there.

Which is why we drafted him in the 1st and why he'll by our primary WR option. Along with the highlighted he is a very hard worker. Crabs will not beat this kid out.
I have not written off Crabtree. He's had a rocky start to his career but he has shown some things and still has that first round talent. We now have a young receiving core led by two first rounders, which should hopefully turn a former weakness into a strength.

Manningham is also an ideal third option. Moss is a wildcard this year. His upside is All Pro, and I'm thinking his downside is occasional red zone specialist.

agreed hes a little small though so i dont expect him to do that much in his rookie season adjusting to the talent and physicallity

but i see him making a huge jump next year

I think AJ Jenkins is Santonio Holmes. He tests very similarly and his size is roughly the same. And his hands and route running are also in the polished and very natural range. If he can be that we added a really good player.

How is Calvin Johnson not #1?

I assume he'll move on this offseason.

Yeah there's a few on there that makes it easy to see they haven't factored in last season yet. Wayne should be gone, White should drop, Holmes too

I get that people love his hands, and that is important, but I think the most important thing they saw in him was how smooth and consistent he was in his routes and how consistently he got separation. Those were things the 49ers did NOT get from any of their WRs last season. Crabtree is not yet smooth or consistent in his routes nor does he get separation once the ball is in the air like Jenkins does. Harbaugh wants to win now with the studs he has and knew full well that to do that he must have a speed guy that does those things. This "what have you done for me lately" league demands production from wideouts. I believe Crabtree WILL improve with a healthy off-season but in the case he does not, Jenkins was a "need" pick that could not wait for development. I believe he will surprise a lot of people with how much PT he will get. That's my opinion and I'm stickin' to it.

I will admit, my reaction to this pick was "WTFFFFFFFFFFFF!" at first. The research I have done in the last three days has definitely made me rethink my overly simplistic view that "number one receiver" meant 6'3" or larger. I understand that's the "prototype," but the things you described are what separate the medium-sized guys in this list from the medium-sized guys who don't pan out. I'm definitely optimistic about Jenkins's ability to contribute.

I remember there were a few games last year where Kyle Williams developed into something of a "go to" option on third downs. Well, Jenkins will be a more talented version of that from day 1.

Had me scratching my head as well, but it helped make my point... I guess his stock was higher a year ago?
Crabtree needs to put his money were his mouth is, don't think i forgot about the hold out..
