most of the same people saying the niners should've traded down for Jenkins are the ones who said the same thing about Aldon. well, Dallas would've have snatched Aldon two picks later.

he had him at 52

Sorry was looking at his BPA board from April 23rd. Also has Hill, Glenn, Sanu and others ahead of Jenkins but his rating is close enough to where we got him.

Baalke made a good point in his post draft discussion and it was this: When you're at 30 and you really like a guy what's the difference if you get him at 30 or at 34? If you trade out you can never guarantee the guy you really like will be there at 34 because another team might like him just as much if not more. And with all the trading of picks going on, I think he makes a valid point.
Also we dont have room for more picks. As it is most of the inactive players and practice squad players will be rookies. We'll probably be even cut a few of them..

Because we don't need more picks.
Matt Maiocco ‏ @MaioccoCSN Reply Retweet Favorite · Open RT @SI_PeterKing Just talked to one team with a receiver need who liked first-round stunner AJ Jenkins over Michael Floyd.

Obviously not every GM agrees with these "armchair GMs."
Jenkins' combine video.

I love the fact he does not body catch.

If it is any consolation, the draft experts (no disrespect out there to MD or OTC) are often wrong when it comes to rating WRs.

Anquan Boldin was picked in the second round. Mike Wallace was drafted in the third round, as was Terrell Owens. Victor Cruz and Wes Welker are two of the most productive wideouts in the NFL and both went undrafted. Enough said...

Cheers!

"Baalke said the Minnesota Vikings called the 49ers to see if they were interested in trading. That would have given the 49ers the third pick in the second round.

But Baalke said he worried that another team would have come in and taken Jenkins before the 49ers. "He would have gone a lot sooner tomorrow than a lot of people think," Baalke said."

Rams or Colts were the only two teams ahead of the Vikings at #3 tomorrow. Make of it what you will.

moving to 34 we could of maybe gotten a 4th.....couple that with our existing 4th and we could move up into the 3rd for instance

The armchair GMs will ignore this because it makes their opinions invalid.
