Bakhtiari dobbs and aj Jenkins improving

AJ has potential, but as has been said already by his coaches, he needs to muscle up to fend of NFL caliber defenders. Hopefully, he's diligently working the weight room. Love the Dobbs and Bakhtiari back stories and hope they both do well this year. Can't see Bahktiari being cut and Dobbs is too versatile not to get on the field.

these guys will give us great depth ...Jenkins has the luxury of not being thrown into the fire from day one, we have the veterans to bring him along slowly and let him adjust to our system

Dobbs will contribute as a blocking TE also , plus he can bring some heat as a pass rusher


I hope Bakhtiara can become a key reserve and provide some punch to our pass rush ...Bak, Aldon and Haralson will bring a pass rush and keep each other fresh for 4 quarters

Bakhtiara knows what he needs to do to make the team. It will not because of a lack of effort.
I swear SF is going to be the place to be , if you're looking for team with a great supporting cast. It was so bad ... Just a few years ago I can remember they pulled guys off the street and asked if they would legally like to hit people.
deeper than a kardashian flesh cave this season.

with jenkins i am simple and stupid. I think he is better now than what he was a month ago and i think he will be better in three weeks than what he is now. you are probably right about putting on some muscle and just learning the nfl game.i have low hopes for him(and that is no knock on him or the selection) so what ever we get out of him in his first year is gravy. Next year i do have high hopes for him as a wide out and hopefully as a return man

I haven't watched any of the pre-season games, but from what I've read it sounds like Jenkins is getting lots of separation from defenders. Granted, it's not against the #1's, but it is encouraging. What I'd really like to know is how he's doing in practice when he lines up across from Culliver or Rogers.

A lot of young WR's have made the transition, so if he can't I'm going to continue to be worried. It seems like the true #1's just have it or they don't. Ie. If he's not making waves now, I wonder how high a ceiling he really has.

can they put cam on IR? doesnt that save his spot and let us use another roster spot?

They sure can and it seems like our best move... and yes, opens up a roster spot.

The interesting question to me is: Has Dobbs shown enough versatility to get aggressive with the final 53? For example, does he allows us to keep 2 TEs (plus Dobbs) and 3 OLBs (plus Dobbs) so he can serve as depth at TE, OLB, and DE? Or, do we value the potential of Reuland and Bakhtiari too much to play that game?

That's an interesting point. It comes down to who they value the most: Cartwright, K.Williams, Bakhtiari, Reuland, Nelms, or Person. Dobbs does give them some versatility in their choice though.

Of all those players, Reuland has sounded like the best player, but he may not have ST value. It'll be interesting to see how the 53 man roster shapes up.
I can see Will Tukuafu getting cut. Ian Williams is having a nice preseason.

Smith Dobbs
Soap Ian
Mac RickyJ

+1 ... interesting question and situation all around. Me? I would probably look for some way to keep Reuland on the 53. Maybe I am one of those fans of every team that thinks we have a special scrub that we can't let get away, but I really like the potential in Reuland, and wouldn't want to risk losing him to waivers. As for Dobbs as the 4th rush LB vs Bakhtiari? I could live with that... but I do like me some Bakhtiari also. That's a situation I'll happily just smile about either way. Might entertain cutting loose Tukuafu.. though he hasn't really done anything is teh suxxorz.
I'm pleased with AJ Jenkins improvement. I'd like to see him get 20-30 receptions this season and by next year be a starter.

Not sure I agree with the Dobbs for Bahktiari, but definitely would try to keep Reuland. By all reports, he catches virtually everything. Sounds like he has the best hands on the team. Someone that sure-handed and big, esp at TE, is valuable, esp in the Red Zone.
I live in Champaign, IL and watched A.J. Jenkins his whole career at Illinois, the kid is explosive but does have issues with bump coverage. And will be a little slow at learning the playbook. But he is a perfect WC Offense WR IMO. At Illinois he ran alot of underneath drag/slant routes, and has the ability to run away from most defenders. So IMO i think in a year or two, if jenkins can bulk up a little to help him get off the line he could be a very productive WR in this league. But he has to want it, and at time at Illinois he didnt look hungry on the field. Now

I dont think Bakhtiari or Dobbs will have a shot at being starters in SF, but both will make the team and be productive coming off the bench IMO.

He doesn't seem to have great hands thus far. He's had a few big drops.
