Haha. Well said

Wait are you trying to kill my dream of being a 49ers regional scout?

Nathan Scheelhaase completed 184 passes for 2110 yards and 13 TDs...

AJ Jenkins caught 90 balls for 1276 yards and 8 TDs...

I haven't watched a bunch of tape (only the Northwestern game) but those numbers blow my mind. The next best reciever caught 26 for 226 and 1. This tells me either Defenses didn't care... or Jenkins does a helluva job getting open in space. Illinois was awful... for Jenkins to be this productive is a surprise... and I think with a better supporting cast he will only get better. There was no running game either as the top rusher was qb scheelhaase with 624 yards on 191 carries. My guess is Jenkins wasn't sent deep because there wasn't time to throw it deep and Scheelhaase was running sooner rather than later.

More I look beyond what people think... I believe this will be a very good pick.

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?

He was a late riser on a lot of teams boards. That is what many reporters are stating.

Still think we could of moved up in the 2nd like we did with Kap. This move makes Moss very important for the RZ.
Quicker than he is fast. So was Jason Hill. From what I have read about Jenkins, let us hope he is more like torry holt than he is Jason hill.

A surprise pick but so far he reads like someone we need. A sure-handed, polished route running receiver with some speed. Red-zone target is still a deficiency but we also did not have many sure-handed receivers to convert third downs last year.

A Torry Holt or Reggie Wayne perhaps?

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?

Ugh....... I'd rather take my chances on a youngster over paying Wallace Fitz money.

Money comes and goes. Once a draft pick is spent it's forever gone.
hope this kid is nothing like Woods...can't help but still feel the sting from that pick (was it at 30 too?)

Yeah....and how highly were Victor Cruz or Mike Wallace or even Terrell Owens ranked before they were drafted?

Now, don't get me wrong. I have a ton of respect for Maddog and OTC...but Harbaugh and Baalke did pretty well last year in their talent evaluations and they both love this guy....and were afraid of trading down because they thought he would be gone. In other words, they thought other teams might have him highly rated as well. If they really dig this guy, I'm cool with the pick.

Good find. Often times, when a player is on a very good team, you have to consider how good the other players around him made him look. This seems to be the opposite where he was on a poor team, but excelled which tells me a lot more than the former.
