Reports out of the Bay Area are saying that AJ Jenkins isn’t looking all that grand. The 49ers rookie has participated in both the rookie minicamp and also some OTA’s and word is AJ Jenkins is sucking ass.
According to Grant Cohn of the Press Democrat, AJ is playing like the worst wide receiver on the field.
The Niners’ first-round pick looked like one of the worst wide receivers on the field most of minicamp. He didn’t play with the first- or second-team offense on Tuesday, and he didn’t catch a pass in scrimmages on Wednesday. He had trouble staying on his feet all three days, which was odd considering it was a non-contact minicamp.
Overall, undrafted receivers Nathan Palmer and Brian Tyms caught many more passes and made more impressive plays than Jenkins did. There’s no rush for Jenkins to produce, though, because there seem to be at least four good wide receivers above him on the depth chart right now — [Michael] Crabtree, [Randy] Moss, [Mario] Manningham and [Kyle] Williams.
