If Jenkins gets cut he will officially become one of the biggest 49ers WR draft busts in team history.

The fact that Hall right off the street was thrown to ahead of Jenkins is a joke.

Doug Martin David Wilson Stephen Hill Coby Fleener & Rueben Randle were all on the board and they draft AJ Jenkins WTF??????????

Yep. Could have had Doug Martin and Reuben Randle instead of Jenkins and James. WOW.


im happy with james hes perfect for our offense, randle and hill were 2 wrs i wouldve been happy with at 30

Doug Martin >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> James though. And Randle >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jenkins. Lets face it. Niners screwed up last year in the draft.

Not impressed. Half of those were wide open blown coverages. The rest were aginst the likes of Northwestern & Indiana. Furthermore he's not torching those guys, just seems a couple steps faster than the slow Big10

I can't believe some guy named Chad Hall is getting more looks in the playoffs than our first round pick.

That is BS. He was a big disappointment in camp and could never get on the field. It had nothing to do with not being drafted for this year. It had everything to do with the fact that he just wasnt good enough to play. First round picks that arent QBs dont just sit out every game

Come on man. We dont know what happens in practice, whats going on we dont see. Didnt we all think Jacobs would do something this year?

This is a new era, Harbs and Ballke. I dont think Jenkins is a bust, he was drafted for next year. We go to the dance this year and need to reload, I think he is part of that. Its not a one year deal anymore for us, its about the future.

LOL You keep thinking that. Maybe it makes you feel better about Jenkins. You might want to refresh your memory though:

Actually we do know what happens in practice. It was reported as early as Training Camp that he was having trouble grasping the playbook. Doesn't matter how fast your legs or good your hands are if you don't know the playbook.


IF Niners lose a relatively close game in the SB (Less than 10 points) then I'm fairly certain a different #1 pick would have helped. Look, we almost had to play in the Wild Card game and were 10 yards from losing the other night. Having an extra 1st Round talent on the field would make a HUGE difference.

I have nothing invested in Jenkins, he could be the next R. Woods for all I know. Maybe he is a bust, but Im not giving judgement yet, just I didnt judge A Davis
Jenkins turning down an invite to train with the GOAT raised a big red flag for me. It wasn't just about running the Hill it was all about an opportunity to train with the best WR ever and Jenkins punked out.

You just don't do that.

whatever.


So far AJ is a Bust.

But I will say this, you go from a really productive player in college, accumilating about 50% of pass production of your entire teams offense (with suspect QB play) its probably been the first time in this dudes life hes been a bench warmer with guys like Moss ahead of him.

Still got hopes for him. He's just got to learn how to be a professional football player first. I think his time will come.

Doug Martin >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> James though. And Randle >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jenkins. Lets face it. Niners screwed up last year in the draft.

I have said for a while now that if the plan was to take RB in the second, and WR in the first, we should have taken RB in the first and WR in the second, i know hind sight is 20/20 but i did want us to draft WR in the second all along. I personaly as really high on Jefferey but there was a ton of WR's all on par with each other in the second. There as no need to take a WR in the first. Even if Jenkins doesnt end up a bust, he wasnt good enough to seperate himself from th rest of the wr's in the second round to justify the pick in the first.

Martin, Wolfe, J. Jenkins, Fleener all could have been taken in the first and would have had an impact.

Then we could have snagged Randle in the second who was there at our pick, or moved up a few spots and snagged another WR we liked in the second.

I know its all hindsight, and i like what LMJ has done stepping in for hunter, but i just dont see a huge differance in Hunter and LMJ, and with gore still carrying the load, i dont see where both get enough carries to justify having two similar RB's on the roster like that. Im sure harbaugh and co ill find a way to get use out of both of them next season, but i would have been much happier with one of the guys listed in the first, and a wr in the second.

Didn't know about that. Quite shocking really if that's true.


If he's a bust its not the end of the world, LaMike looks good and the 2011 draft has made up for it.
I'd say based on the article, he's in the doghouse. Deep. The only slack he has is that he was a first round pick. He probably has a season to turn it around. Still won't just label him a bust. We'll see if he has the heart and the mental toughness to respond.
