They are not mutually exclusive, in fact they go hand in hand these days.

Good points. First rounders start, at any position. Less than that...... is less than a deserved first rounder.
Alex, most his supporters here hope for retain-ment as backup QB. Alex has more self-respect than that. He wants to start and only his fieriest detractors would offer such an outrageous position as him being ONLY a backup in this league. So ..............

i hated the james pick cuz i thought we should have went linebacker or defensive end but he made the most of his chance when he got time. jenkins on the other hand was the deer in the headlights

Jenkins needs a coach that actually knows the position....
Matt Barrows ‏@mattbarrows Baalke said he expects AJ Jenkins to arrive in Atlanta (where Kaepernick is working out) this week if he isn't already there.
Saw him at Gold Club last night. He was surrounded by strippers, cocaine, and fried chicken poppers. Pacman Jones was on stage making it rain on them hoes with Lil Wayne. It was quite the scene.

Nice job Baalke.

Trainer at CES Performance outside Atlanta said #49ers A.J. Jenkins has not started training with Colin Kaepernick and others WRs.

The trainer, Aaron Roberts, said he's not sure when #49ers A.J. Jenkins will arrive in Georgia.

lol, See post #185
INDIANAPOLIS -- General manager Trent Baalke said his faith in 49ers wide receiver A.J. Jenkins has not wavered after a season in which the first-round draft pick made no impact as arookie.

Even with season-ending injuries to Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams, Jenkins did not make a contribution. He saw just one pass thrown his way the entire season. He dropped it. In 16 regular-season games, he played just 35 snaps from scrimmage.

[RELATED: Baalke -- No decision made on Alex Smith's future with 49ers]

"I think there are a lot of things that go into that," Baalke said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine. "First of all, we had a lot of people in front of him. He's a young guy that came out of a college system and it's taken a while to grasp the pro system.

"It isn't a work-ethic issue. It's not a skill-set issue. It's learning the craft at the pro level. And that's a position, historically, that some have adapted to quicker than others. There are a lot of things that go into it. But we're confident in his abilities, as we were when we drafted him."

Jenkins, the No. 30 overall pick last year from Illinois, is scheduled to join a group of young 49ers players, led by quarterback Colin Kaepernick, to train at Competitive Edge Sports in Atlanta before the opening of the 49ers' offseason program.

"To my knowledge, if he's not already there he's on his way there," Baalke said of Jenkins. "We'd expect him to be there working right with those guys. You certainly you want your quarterback and receivers working together as much as possible. With the way the offseason works, nothing. it's up to them to do the right thing and go to work and hone their craft. it goes back to selecting the right guys who have the right mindset."

Baalke said the 49ers are looking for "do-extra guys," and he places Jenkins in that class. He said he expects Jenkins to make a huge jump in improvement between his first and second NFL seasons.

"The bottom line is he didn't get on the field this year," Baalke said. "He knows what he needs to do. We know what we need to do as an organization to help him get there. And we're confident that we're going to be able to do that."

The 49ers did not get much production from their 2012 draft class. Second-round pick LaMichael James did not play until late in the season after backup running back Kendall Hunter was lost to a season-ending torn Achilles. Fourth-round pick Joe Looney, who spent most of training camp rehabbing a Lisfranc foot fracture, did not play. Safety Trenton Robinson, a sixth-round pick, and outside linebacker Cam Johnson, a seventh-rounder, saw limited action.

"We feel very good about the class," Baalke said. "We didn't get a lot of production out of the class, but if you look at the players we drafted and the positions we drafted, they were coming into some loaded depth at certain positions.

"We feel very good about A.J. We feel very good about LaMichael James. We feel good about that group of guys. Joe Looney came in off an injury into an offensive line that's a pretty good group. So we weren't expecting a ton of production, to be honest with you. Did we did get what we expected? That's yet to be determined. There are a lot of years left in those guys' playing careers."

i am one of the biggest alex fans in the world and I do not want him back! we do not need the drama, we could use a draft pick/possible cap relief and i would lose all respect if he came crawling back to us as a backup, when at his age, he just needs to go somewhere and start

How long will A.J. Jenkins stay in Georgia? Texted his agent: "However long Kap wants to work out." #49ers




I'll believe that when I see it. I hope Jenkins realizes that the whole world thinks he's full of s**t at this point, so he's got some credibility to start rebuilding immediately.

Wow...for the first time in some years our 1st rd pick doesn't play other than a handful of snaps and he's branded a bust. If and when Baalke and Harbaugh get worried about this kid, then I'll be concerned. 'Til then, I think those two know a heckuva lot more about developing young players than any of us do. Period.
