AJ Jenkins is a 49er

I'm thinking more like Jason Hill -esque.

Besides,

more than likely,

Moss will get injured and or suck.

But Jason Hill didn't have the college production to match his tangibles. AJ Jenkins does.

It doesn't take too much confidence to draft a person who is widely regarded as a reach.

Its almost like this guy views "reaches" as "players in the rough". Its like he says, people project this guy later, but I see something in him where he can contribute in our system. Good GMs do that.

Harbaugh and Baalke have my trust so I'm not lambasting the pick at all. It seems to me that they feel in love with Jenkins. I think we could have gotten him had we traded down.

If you want to be SPECIFIC in stature and all that, then yes, our Maclin. Have some fun with the pick sheesh!

Just being honest. Otherwise, why not say "he's our calvin johnson!" if size doesn't matter. I am happy with it now given this is who baalke wanted from the start.

We have some size at receiver already. Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree (not a giant, but he has a great vertical), Vernon Davis (although not much of a leaper). If this kid turns out to be Mike Wallace, then why not? Wallace had a 4.33 40, Jenkins with a 4.37, same size/weight.

If he's like Mike Wallace... why don't we just trade for Wallace and try to negotiate a realistic contract?

Because Wallace wanted a Fitz like contract, and he likely wouldn't of budged much on it. He isn't signing his RFA tender until time for him to do so.

dude's hands are money.
Oh man, if Baalke has picked someone who can do what Cruz did last year then we have ourselves a football Nostradamus on our hands.

He has the same height/weight as both him and Mike Wallace, and had better stats in college, so who knows...

still a big reach, yes Aldon was but not this big of a reach

Most analysis I have heard, say that Jenkins was projected to go near the top of the 2nd, so how is that a "reach" at 30?

Steve Wallace is that a crossbreed of Steve Smith(panthers) and Mike Wallace?!?! If so I want!

Cause Green and Jenkins have the same first name, and Green had a good rookie year.
Watched Illinois football the last two years, thanks to my best friend being a former Illini. Jenkins is a good receiver...not great. Has the wheels though and can stretch the field. Not much of a blocker and dropped passes between the hash marks. Not 1st round talent and probably a 2/3 receiver at this level. But great stats last year at Illinois. Could have got him cheaper and later in the draft. Joins a now crowded receiving staff. We'll see if he creates much impact this year. Kind of a surprise pick but hope he can contribute.
Posting thsi snippet from an Insider article:

Separation skills
The challenge when evaluating a receiver's separation skills is to sift through potentially deceptive variables, including his supporting cast and offensive system, and the types of defensive coverage and level of competition he faces. While there's no exact formula, the two most critical ingredients are suddenness and savvy as they pertain to route-running. Can a receiver get open, or is he forced to make contested catches due to his inability to separate?

Well this means Williams is gone. And so much for Crabs playing in the slot.

Baalke said we may carry 6 WRs during the season

Moss, Crabs, Manningham, Williams, Ginn, and Jenkins.......maybe?

If we only dress 5 it will be between Williams and Jenkins

Laughed out loud when I read this...Niner Talk at it's finest.

on gamedays we wont dress 6 WR's so you dress 5, the last spot will be between jenkins and williams

Still laughing.

because you dont understand how the numbers work....?
