AJ Jenkins is a 49er

AJ Jenkins will have 500 yards receiving against the Falcons. I just did it with him in madden, so that means he can do it in real life.
I'm not too concerned if AJ doesn't contribute. We aren't facing menacing secondaries unless we face the Ravens.
Would rather have his brother Leroy.

I've seen plenty of posters agree that we can't be labeling this kid a bust just yet. I do agree, in theory.

BUT--- A first round receiver should be good enough to press the issue. What I mean is, a first round WR should be good enough to be pushing the regulars for playing time. A first round WR should be making so many plays in practice that he forces the issue, that he forces the coach to play him, for the QB to throw his way. We have seen none of that.

I dont care that he has wheels. He makes no plays when it counts. That's all I need to know. I'm sure Harbaugh is skilled enough to get some use from him but to not believe that the pick was a complete disaster is foolish. For CK to not even target him means he has no confidence in him. We've seen Kap force throws to Crabtree. No one is forcing throws to Bustkins

A little bit premature?

Crabtree is showing to be a #1 in his FOURTH year! IF he does not show something by this time next year, I think he could go down as bust. Labeling him after about 50 snaps of playing is just silly.
Not that his contributions would make a difference at this point...but seriously, what the hell happened with this guy.

The Crabtree comparisons have got to stop. People were disapointed with what crabtree showed because everyone knew what potential he had. People questioned his work ethic and his desire, not his ability for the most part. People were upset about the hold out, then happy with what he showed his rookie season, then disapointed again with the missed offseasons and apparent lack of desire to be great.

Crabtree missed his entire rookie offseaon, and the first 5 weeks of regular season footbal then came in and in 11 games had 48 receptions for 625 yards 2 TD's and a 13.0 average. The same average he had this season.

Jenkins has had the entire offseason, and 17 weeks of the regular season, had two WR's that were ahead of him on the depth chart have season ending injurys, and he still hasnt even passed Ginn on the depth chart it seems. Ginn isaint even an NFL caliber third WR on nearly any team in the NFL. That is very disapointing and concerning no matter which way you spin it. Can he be labeled a bust definateivly? Of course not. But people have reason to be concerned.

Crabtree is starting to look like a #1 reciever after 4 years of "ON THE FIELD PLAY".... This kid can't even get on the field....WOW

a number one draft choice who does not produce and looks lost on the field should be a concern in my opinion
he is a pretty good dancer
Out of curiousity since we know who Jenkins has had to compete with for time on the field, who did crabtree really have to compete with when he was drafted?

Your arguement is not valid. Who does Jenkins have to compete with now? We arent talking about him not cntributeing when there were other players ahead of him. We are talking about him still not contributing when only Crabtree, Moss, and Ginn are the only WR's healthy. The fact that the staff seems to be favoring Ginn right now in some formations is worisome, Ginn is not an NFL caliber receiver on any team. Even in 5 WR sets they were using walker and Miller split out wide instead of him. Walker is horrible Sure he gets open, but he cant catch s**t.

Jenkins should be showing ALOT more than he has. He doesnt need to leapfrog anyone anymore. He should be far and away the front runner as the #3 WR, and hes not.
579 total yards and 0 for Jenkins. Hard to pass judgement with so little playing time, but you have to ask yourself, what the f**k!
