Fact: Jenkins has 0 catches this year


That's atleast 2 strikes right there. Seems to be he showed up not ready and has continued to struggle. Unless our WR core declines with injuries or players leaving, don't see how someone like Jenkins would be seeing the field for a Title Contender.


I didn't know he had an attitude problem. That's the first I've heard of that.
I want to cut the guy some slack since it is his rookie year and he was off to a slow start, but it was a little upsetting seeing practice squad Chad Hall actually get into the game and our first rounder can't.

That's the first that anyone (except KEGster, obviously) has heard of it.
I'm hearing too many excuses for Jenkins! When a practice squad player who's 5'8" gets a play and you still don't, plus you don't even suit up for the majority of the YEAR, AND you're a first round draft choice? C'mon, it doesn't take a genius to figure this guy is a huge disappointment to the coaching staff and not what they were hoping for. Whether he develops into something resembling a justification of that choice remains to be seen, but so far, no good! I'd bet that had he not been such a high draft choice, he would not have even made the team!
What really pisses me off as well about taking Jenkins with our #1 pick is that the 49ers had all of Martin Hill Randle Wilson & Fleener in for pre draft workouts and still couldn't get it right.

Oh well Baalke & Harbaugh prove they human too. But better learn from mistakes can't keep screwing up with our #1 picks.

Bring back Moss next year as WR or coach and trade with Jets for Stephen Hill. Let Hill learn from Moss.

Raw skill sets > Colin Kaepernick > Stephen Hill

And toss out Luck and RG3 Martin and Wilson are NFL ROY candidates.

Sanchez & Tebow > free Stephen Hill

"It was Jenkins' second rep in one-on-one drills against cornerback Perrish Cox. In their first battle, Jenkins caught a short pass for a small gain. Jenkins has been doing a lot of this the last few practices – catching short passes in front of defenders who have given him too much space at the line of scrimmage.

Jenkins' second rep visibly frustrated coach Johnnie Morton, who wanted the young receiver to run a deep route but threw his hat in disgust and dressed the receiver down in front of the media when Jenkins cut off his route, turned to face the quarterback and looked for a short pass instead."

I didn't say he has an attitude problem in the sense of being a brat or jerk. He has struggled to show the attitude needed to be a player in the Professional Football League. Case in point: We didn't draft you in the 1st Round to run 5 yard routes

So an August 1st practice is evidence that Jenkins has a bad attitude all year? Seems a bit presumptive.

Harbaugh said Hall was very adept at a play that was inserted in the game plan when asked about Jenkins not getting the opportunity. He also said Jenkins was still ahead of Hall on the depth chart. I'll take him at his word until he changes it. I wish Jenkins could push for time but it isn't happening so now I hope he will get a clue with another training camp. If he doesn't then they need to bring in another WR...which means they need to draft one to compete and potentially bring in a FA.

I wouldn't.

Harbaugh did say that the only reason Hall was in wasnt because he was better then anyone else, it was because they had a specifically designed play set for him. Maybe he's just b******tting maybe hes not who knows its Harbaugh.

Ummm … Coach Jimmy always has a plan up his sleeve .
Jenkins and Akers have been the only disappointments this season. It's tough when your 1st round pick can make it on the field. I see a lot of similarities between him and Kentwan Balmer. Both talented but considered projects and both couldn't make it on the field.
bundle him up in the trade of alex smith.
