Has anyone else trained with Rice?

I believe Jerry has offered in the past, not sure if anyone's taken him up on the offer.
Good to hear AJs gonna get some work in with the GOAT
crabtree but broked his foot...
I think VD did.

lol really?
I did a couple weeks ago. I smoked his old arce.

In all seriousness, this isn't a big deal. Rice taking Jenkins to the hill is more about him welcoming him into the 49er family and getting to know him. Maybe he becomes a mentor to AJ, which would be a plus for any young player. Physically, it's not a big deal. Rice is way to old to keep up with the youngster. Plus, Rice will get a little more face time on TV if can talk about AJ on a personal level. Selfish reasons? Who knows?

Reading about AJ's relationship with previous coaches makes me think that he'd really take Rice's advise to heart. He seems like a hard worker and pretty humble. That's a great characteristics for a rookie.
JJ Stokes did
Vaguely remember there was whole bunch NFL guys trying his hill just before Rice retired. Some of them didn't make it. I could be wrong.
Roger Craig was his main man on The Hill.
Hopefully he invites Owusu to tag along.

that would make sense considering how fast VD is for his size

the hill is not the silver bullet to the kid becoming a good nfl wide out but it is nice to see he is not afraid of hard work and he appreciates the history of the team. from that standpoint he is miles ahead of r woods when he was a rookie.I am also glad he will be practicing against one of the best defenses in practice every day!

While the hill is not the magic bullet, this speaks to the kid's work ethic -- This kid happens to have the combine measurables that beat all the big names (Blackmon, Wright, et al)

I wouldn't be surprised if Crabs decided to go lol

JT never joined Jerry (he was kind of reclusive) but when he stepped on the field, #82 brought it

agree. great work ethic. must be that intangible the coaches look for in players. i have a good feeling bout the kid but need to temper it a bit . it sounds like moss has grown up a bit, maybe while the kid is working with rice, crabtree can learn some positive things about moss. it is nice to be able to be in a spot where we have two young wide outs learning from two hall of fame guys
JJ stokes was bad ass... ... Just a tad to slow for the NFL.

Rice taking a wr under his wing is not every thing.... But if the kid sells out and brings it every practice , I think the guy can be awesome.

He reminds me of a smarter , faster Brandon lloyd.
Rashaun Woods did.
