Aldon was a fine pick because it was a legitimate top 12 pick kind of player AND filled an immediate need. Jenkins is not a legitimate first rounder, and unlike Aldon was not seen by ANYONE else as a first round talent. I simply did not find ANYTHING in the multiple games of watching Jenkins that led me to believe he was a star in the making.

My impression is he will be nothing more than a potential depth WR with STs ability. Obviously they expect his peak to be astronomically higher, but I am willing to bet they are wrong. I trust our staff, but they can't get every pick right, and I will venture to say this will be one that does not live up to 1st round status.

you cant judge what others think on their boards.

you have your own board. they went by it. he was the best player available according ot them

stoked we got this dude!!! his numbers are legit at the combine and most importantly he was hella productive in school with a s**tty QB. all the geniuses like kiper can go f**k themselves i think harbaugh and baalke have actual nfl jobs for a reason
We certainly won't be taking Quick or James. If we take a RB it will be a bigger guy to complement Hunter and spell Gore. If we take another WR it won't be until the later rounds imho.

As long as Jenkins gets in on time and gets going he should be active on gamedays.

Right now it would be these 46 active, barring injuries and vets not being as advertised.

QB- Alex Smith and Josh Johnson
RB- Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and Brandon Jacobs
FB- Bruce Miller
WR- Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham, A.J. Jenkins
TE- Vernon Davis, Delanie Walker and Nate Byham (Could see a TE drafted to compete with Byham)
C- Jonathan Goodwin
OG- Mike Iupati, Daniel Kilgore and Mike Person (Depends on how far in draft we add a OG, plus a vet could be brought in)
OT- Joe Staley, Anthony Davis and Alex Boone
DE- Justin Smith, Ray McDonald and Will Tukuafu
NT- Isaac Sopoaga and Ricky Jean Francois
OLB- Aldon Smith, Ahmad Brooks and Parys Haralson
ILB- Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Larry Grant and Tavares Gooden
CB- Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver, Perrish Cox and Tramaine Brock (Could add a CB in draft to compete)
S- Dashon Goldson, Donte Whitner, C.J. Spillman and Colin Jones
K- David Akers
P- Andy Lee
LS- Brian Jennings
KR/PR- Ted Ginn Jr.
ST Ace- Rock Cartwright

The Last 7 Spots/Inactives on 53 man would be IMO, QB Colin Kaepernick, DE Demarcus Dobbs and NT Ian Williams

The last 4 spots would be up in the air. if all goes well, of the 49 I listed(46 active and 3 inactives), the only ones not guaranteed a spot IMO are Moss, Jacobs, Dobbs, I.Williams, Byham, Cox and Brock.

I am going to say Johnson and Kaep are our 2nd and 3rd QBs, leaving Tolzien gone, as he isn't practice squad eligible due to being roster for entire season.

I say Cartwright is locked in to me because he is a special teams ace, and can play RB and Return Kicks when needed.

Dobbs and I.Williams will be pushed in camp, possibly a NT and DE are drafted in rounds 2-4, depended on value. I would love to add either Kendall Reyes or Alameda Ta'amu in round 2 if possible.

Kyle Williams, Anthony Dixon are two who likely gone, no room on roster for those two.

If the 49 players were to make the squad I listed that would leave 4 spots open, likely a OG and OT, a OLB and likely a DB or WR, depended on how the team feels depth wise.

As of now we have 66 players committed for the 2012 offseason/training camp, leaving 24 roster spots open.

I think our roster is solid, no weak areas right now. I don't expect a starter from the 2012 class in 2012 season.

On one other note special teams wise, of the 46 players these guys are likely on STs, Gooden, Grant, Jones, Cartwright, Byham, Tukuafu, Brock, Cox, Spillman, Miller(I expect he is used on STs also in additon to FB), and I would like to see Walker, Goldson and Bowman off STs, but am not mad if they are, they contribute nicely.

You and me both AB....

This team needs at least one talented DL guy to add to the rotation next season.

Right about the position, wrong about the player. But I like it.
Angst is natural when it comes to the 49ers and early round WR picks, I get that. I'm surprised, but I've gotta wait this out. If he produces like a first rounder the value is good. I think Baalke is going after a home grown version of Mike Wallace.
Why didn't we just trade down to acquire more picks? I think we could have snatched him later.

Personally I am hoping Reyes falls somehow to 61, he would be a nice 3-4 end in our rotation. Would push Tukuafu for Playing Time. And would make it between Dobbs and Williams for 7th and last DL spot, of course it would be moot if we also drafted a NT earlier than the late 4th round.

I like another NT, Alabama's Josh Chapman, he could be a nice piece for the future. My dream Scenario is Reyes or Ta'amu falls to 61, then we trade back up, either end of rd 2, or early rd 3 and Ta'amu is still there. I know it isnt likely, but would be a nice draft to get a solid WR(Jenkins) and 2 DL(Reyes and Ta'amu) to our team.
