Jim Harbaugh Turns Into Stretch Armstrong Selects A.J. Jenkins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well the first round is done and over, and it went by quick, and had a lot of movement. The 49ers filled a need at the WR position by selecting Illinois wide out A.J. Jenkins. Jenkins is average sized, but does a good job making plays after the catch. While he doesn’t have amazing speed he knows how to find holes in zone coverage. Somehow though I can’t help but feel that they reached for him at 30. The teams has bigger needs on the offensive line and a player like Cordy Glenn was still there, but they felt Jenkins wouldn’t be there in the second round. Jenkins however has the chance to learn from Randy Moss and Mario Manningham, who is fresh off a Super Bowl win.
Now that the team is heading into the second round they need to address the need on the offensive line. The 49ers got the guy they really wanted, but could it have come at too high a price? I guess only time will tell.

    No speed, and yet already the fastest guy on the roster.
