Was it our own great Bill Walsh that said something to the tune of "Trading back is great but at some point you just have to take the guy and make the pick"
Baalke follows this pretty well. I am really excited about this. Jenkins is genuinely excited about this situation and he is just pumped, there is nothing more motivating then reaching for a guy and saying "we love him, were putting faith in him and were taking him were we can get him".
he visited teams all slotted to go from the 29-40th pick range, yes it could mean they liked him at this point in the 2nd/3rd round as well but I'm more inclined to believe he was going to go in the top 45 for sure. He was the 7th best wideout on most boards and the top 3 were already off the board, thats not really a reach if you ask me.
EDIT: 1:30 for the Northwestern highlights, man for him to hold on to that ball! Talk about absorbing a hit, definitely has the hands.
