AJ Jenkins is a 49er

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?

Or Jason Hill.

Alex Smith will throw every pass high.

NFL Draft Countdown had Nate Burleson. Not sure about that... I've heard Mike Wallace light. They had him as 9th best WR

Strengths: • Great hands, catches balls away from body • Runs smooth routes with clean cuts • Excellent timed speed • Finds holes in zone coverage • Very productive

Weaknesses: • Field speed does not equal timed speed • Has trouble with press coverage • Drops passes when lacking focus • Very thin frame Injury History: • Missed 4 games in 2009 with a knee injury

Notes: 3 year Academic All Big-Ten -- Very productive player who does all of the little thngs well -- Could develop into a starter.


------------------------------
Walterfootball (11th best WR)
4/24/12: Jenkins had a very productive senior season. He caught 90 passes for 1,276 yards and eight touchdowns. In 2010, as a junior, Jenkins hauled in 56 passes for 746 yards and seven touchdowns. He has the speed to get downfield. Jenkins is a good value in the mid-rounds and had an impressive week at the East-West Shrine. He showed his foot speed with a great Combine and followed that up with a strong pro day. In the NFL, Jenkins looks like he could be a good slot receiver and make some big plays downfield. He also has the size to line up on the outside. Jenkins could turn into a steal given that he produced despite bad quarterback play.

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....?

No because you dont think our first round pick will dress on Sundays.

wont dress over Crabs, wont dress over Moss, wont dress over Ginn

so we have Manningham, Jenkins, and Williams...the only one's who have NFL experience are Ham and Williams. Until Jenkins shows he can start he wont take a spot away from Manningham. So the last spot is between Jenkins and Williams to dress on Sunday.

You're assuming Moss pans out and Williams makes the team...the guy isn't going to be wearing sweats on Sundays.

Someone get this guy's resume to the 49ers. He has all the answers.
lol at Grant Cohn crying into his pillow like a little girl. Too bad, the kid had some potential.

If Moss doesn't work out and Williams doesn't make the team we are in serious trouble

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?

draftscout 58
otc 83
MD 52
NFP 167

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.



Bill Walsh's draft philosophy:

I like #1 and #3. Seems to apply in this case.
LOL at all of the wanabe draft pundits in here hating on this pick as if they know what the f**k they're talking about.

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 Mike Wallace doesn't want a realistic contract. He wants Calvin Johnson money.

I cannot believe that we passed on Knoz, Hill and Fleener... AND we were in shooting distance of DeCastro. Crazy stuff.
