Draft Reaction: San Francisco selects WR A.J. Jenkins
We all had A.J. Jenkins as the fourth receiver off the board, right?
Maybe not, but the 49ers must have liked what they saw on film from A.J. Jenkins. When I look at him, I did not see any every down consistent receiver. I saw more of a Pierre Garcon #3 type clone.
I also really didn’t see quality receiver as a need for the 49ers after adding Randy Moss and others in the offseason. They do need to avoid a situation like they had in the NFC Championship last year where they are so weak on the outside that they are down to two healthy receivers. But I’m not buying an argument that Jenkins was BPA on the board of the 49ers. I think he might have been the best available offensive skill player, but that’s a different argument.
