He only came in on 3rd down to rush the QB. He had a good year considering the circumstances but many Niner fans gripped about how Aldon should be on the field all the time.

Baalke became GM at the same time Harbs became coach 2 years ago. Crabtree was drafted by Scott Mc. Our past teams with Nolan and Sing, draft picks got on the field faster because we sucked and the talent wasn't used properly. Aldon was 7th overall and he would only come in on 3rd down because he only knew how to rush the QB. Jenkins can end up a bust after a couple of years but come on. It's different for every player and how fast they adjust to the NFL.
Jenkins is a bust. Yes, I know it was his first year,but what first round draft pick never gets on the field. This isn't college. You don't red shirt 1st round picks. Thier expected to help the team. That's why thier drafted in the 1st round. Sad as it is we need another wideout for what the 3 year in a row.
P.S. What is with this new front office having trouble drafting good wideouts by the way. They just suck at it. I mean other then Crabtree.
Aldon has 14 sacks his first year. Sure thats the comparisson you want to make?
People compareing his to QB's and other such possitions are seriously reaching.
He is a WR. The only two WR's capable of playing by the end of the year were crabtree, and a old washed up moss. Ginn and a nobody chad hall were seeing snaps before him. When he did get on the field he looked lost.
I'm not disagreeing that Jenkins had a bad year. he wasn't good enough to have an impact that's for sure. I'm not going to pretend that I know what was happening on the scout team or the depth chart with Jenkins though... I just know he's not a bust, yet... But our team is filled with former 1st round picks that we drafted or we plucked from other teams because they never developed with their original team.
