The San Francisco 49ers obviously needed to add a receiver in this draft, but there was no need to reach for A.J. Jenkins here. When you’re this close to Super Bowl contention, it just doesn’t make sense to add a guy like Jenkins this early who needs time to develop.
I do think Jenkins can develop into a quality starter, but there were better options. How about adding a guy like Cordy Glenn, who can start from day one and improve the offensive line?
If they were dead set on adding a receiver, I would have gone with Stephen Hill. While he’s also raw, I think he can be a better deep threat than Jenkins, which is an aspect of his game which immediately translates to the NFL.
