AJ Jenkins is a 49er

Jenkins looks like a work horse compared to the other one trick ponys

Jenkins seems faster than Cruz as evidenced his blazing combine results (40 yard dash, vertical, and broad jump)

We have our 2 starting guards already. Kilgore will be awesome.
Thats been my position. But it seems that we just can't convince people on Kilgore and JH's developmental abilities.
I think what bothers people is we were looking for a 6'3+ RZ target and didnt get it. Wonder if we go back to WR again....use Jenkins to replace Williams and another kid to push Moss/Manningham?

Was this posted before? Killer fb cover photo

There are still a lot of good players available. Lineman dropped much farther than had been projected. There are still 3 great interior lineman prospects in Glenn, Konz, and Silatolu. In addition to a couple OLB prospects in Upshaw, and Andre Branch, and yes even Fleener.

My prediction, we trade up into the mid 2nd round to secure one of those three interior lineman prospects.
I like the pick and love the speed.

Serious man. People are acting like hes not even on the team. He is more proven at this point than any rookie we would have or will draft.

We just watched every single team pass on Fleener and Hill... some passed on them twice. So, uh... maybe they're just not as good as the hype. Time will tell.

not saying i dont love the pick, and sorry to quote you, but im sick and tired of everyone pointing out aldon from last year, yes balke made a great pick last year and is a better talent evalutor than any of us on the forum that does not mean that he incapable of making a bust pick.
I wasn't aware Illinois had a football team, but I'll give Harbs and Baalke the benefit of the doubt. Jenkins is smart and wears my favorite number.

Listen to CSN Bay Area news conference where Harbaugh mentions the meeting the coaching staff particularly Morton convinced them he was the right guy for the team...i strongly disagree and i think Morton needs to go..he thought Ronald Johnson would be great..

I'm thinking, draft a tall TE. If not trading up for Fleener, then drafting a guy like Ladarius Green, Michael Egnew, or Taylor Thompson. Even guys like Orson Charles and Dwayne Allen could work.

Though, with all the tall WR in the draft still, that wouldn't surprise me either.
i listened to the KNBR interview with him and Harbaugh and when you listen to Jenkins, it's impossible not to like the pick from a personality standpoint.

I have to do my homework and watch some film on him but sounds like a great find.

The more weapons on O the better.

Now hopefully a good guard or center like Konz is still available in the 2nd. Or I could easily see them trading up to get a guy they want.
