He lacks the vision that gore and hunter has. He just dances around the line and will occasionally put his shoulder down.
Everyone is so excited to see Jenkins bc of the 1st round pick, but I can see a bit of disaster in the fact the kid might run the wrong routes, not be able to get open, or just doesn't have the experience. We'll see I guess. Hope he got stronger as well. KW was playing well and knew the system. Can't say that about a late first round rook, but hope he's explosive.

Dixon is easy to knock off his feet and lacks power for a big back.
personally, i am just sick kyle tore his ACL, and is gone for season. Time to bring up AJ. and do what Coach doesn't like...play rooks. Well let's hope he gets some balls in game other than PATS and SEA. The rest, we should be ok for a rook mistake. My guess is he will run a lot of routes and not see many balls. Also find out how he blocks. Still, kyle had turned into a helluva WR and he had speed. Well, AJ does too, but like jerry rice, it is with the ball, not in the 40 yd dash.
Give Jenkins a shot! wtf did we draft him for? Or LaMichael James...
The place we need LaMichael is not between tackles, but split wide of alex as the go to guy on 3rd down pass or lateral. One problem. LaMic has the fumbles. I sure hope he can catch a pass tho.
Cox is the backup returner. He was pretty good at OK state and in Denver.
Two words. One number. En Espanol. OchoCinco
yall still knocking Dixon huh ... every time he got the ball this year he has done well...he even got us some positive yards to set up a 3rd and short I believe, when he was called up after Hunter got hurt.

I think Dixon will do well...if anything, when ever he is asked to come in for Gore, at least he can help pass block or catch out of the back field. He has a good rapport with Colin...he does a good job sensing when Colin is going to run and quickly latches on to a defender in the area.

that all being said, I'm really really really going to miss Hunter I know some like him already, but I think some underestimate how important he is to our offense. He usually gets us out of funks with 10 yard runs here and there with great vision and toughness.
Hate the injury. Never thought I would actually be upset at Kyle Williams injury but he has earned back my respect. I'm excited to see Jenkins get the nod since he was very professional and kept his mouth shut until opportunity knocked. If James comes in and he and Kaep do that thunder speed stuff we saw in pre season, teams better watch out.
Some depth at OLB wouldn't hurt. We certainly don't need any more WRs in the 53. I'm sure plenty of the guys we had in preseason in that spot will be still available.
Matt Maiocco ‏@MaioccoCSN Source: 49ers will sign WR Chad Hall to practice squad today. No word yet on how they plan to fill roster spot after Kyle Williams' injury.

Where he was drafted doesn't determine his playing time. If he's not ready, he's not ready. In Harbaugh I trust.

Then why pay him more money than the rest of the draft picks to just ride the pine??? Doesn't make sense to me.

THIS! Why draft him where they did, esp since he could have been gotten further down, if he can't play? First round picks should be born ready. Never seen such a scenario where your top 2 picks don't even suit up for their first season. If there was ever a reason to get this kid going, this is it, even if it's just for insurance.
Too bad it had to happen to Williams like that. The kid worked his butt off to this year to get that bad taste from last years NFCG out of his mouth. Wish him a speedy recovery, and if its official on this Chad Hall kid, then i guess we will be alright. We need Ginn to step up big, so far he shown nothing close to last year. We're gonna need some big returns from him, field position is crucial late in the season and playoffs so he gonna have to find himself quick.

In the meantime, maybe they need to give some minutes to Jenkins by bringing him up. But most importantly, they need to utilize Moss more in the passing game and run game. He can still make an impact if used properly. They way Moss is being used, reminds me of past players coming back to their old team, contribute alittle and then retire at halftime. So sad to see at times.
