Agree and disagree. I agree that they are similar in some ways and that they are in pretty direct competition for WR3 status. But I don't think drafting him was any kind of admission about Jenkins. I think the 49ers recognized that he was great value in the 4th round and knew we could use some WR depth and competition.
I'm hoping they are both around for a long time, and I know Harbaugh and Baalke are too.
What you said, plus some insurance against Crabtree maybe leaving for 'greener' pastures.
