AJ Jenkins is a 49er

I can't wait to see some of the comments in this thread around January 2014. It will probably be a complete 180, much like the Michael Crabtree thread, the Vernon Davis thread (going from 2008 to 2009) and perhaps now the Anthony Davis thread.

Hope we all are completely wrong about him being a bust. It's just not trending that way though... As for Crab, VD, and A. Davis they at least participated in games and you could convince urself that they would get better with experience.... This dude gives us nothing to grab ahold of as far as hope......nothing
i still have faith in him. i don't expect him to be a 1,000 yard guy. but a good slot reciever and return man.

"Jenkins is ahead on depth chart, Had something happen to mike or randy [jenkins would be in]"
Cut this dude
Not giving up yet... not many WR have great rookie years. Many HOF WR struggled their first year(s). Off the top of my head...

0 catches his rookie year,
Wes Welker
Jimmy Smith

Chris Carter had 5 receptions his rookie year.

John Taylor had 9 receptions his rookie year.

I'm sure there are plenty of other examples...
The main problem I have with him is his 1rst round draft status and the actual return we've got on it so far. Has anybody done any research to see how many 1rst round draft pick didn't have any catches there rookie year? (Barring injury)


When I get back to the house, maye something I look into.

Are any of these receivers first round draft picks? Just asking... Not in a position to look it up right now.

Interesting stats, ok I'm convinced, lets wait another season to fully pass judgement
one thing for certain is that baalke like's to draft project players.
I think he's been a terrible addition...

That said, the niners have been playing chess in this year's playoffs. Each week, a new move. First Kap, then Davis. What if Jenkins has been our superbowl check mate the entire time?

Everyone says he is fast and fluid with big hands, i can't imagine that Harbaugh doesn't know what to do with that. We just might see some bombs this game.

Dude relax. Most WRs suck hard their first year or two or three in the league. Last I checked everyone one here was saying get rid of Crabtree a year ago. We are too quick to judge these players. Give him time.

They do? WR is the easiest position to grasp on offense.

Crabtree was still our #1 WR, because of his production. The only reason Jenkins is on the field is injury.

Jefferey was my guy in the second. Guy had a 15.3 average. Alot of people argued with me that he was fat and lazy.

Usually they aren't great til year three. I'd say running back is a lot easier to jump into. Not to say I'm not a little worried but I am willing to wait a bit longer.

Wasn't impressed by him whatsoever. He was basically the #2 WR in that offense and struggled like crazy at times. That said, I would gladly take him over Jenkins at this point.


Blackmon is going to be a top WR, Hill and Randle looked good in limited playing time and Hilton was a nice deep threat for Indy this year.
