If you’re a former first round pick, you should be getting better each year.  The problem with 49ers wide receiver A.J. Jenkins is that he hasn’t progressed quickly enough yet. According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee,  Jenkins may not even be the fifth or sixth best receiver on the 49ers roster. One of them is a guy named A.J. Jenkins. Have you read anything about him lately? His potential is undeniable. He’s very quick, very fluid. He gets up to top speed quickly, etc., etc. But he simply hasn’t been one of the six best receivers in training camp. If the 49ers keep him, they will say it’s because they believe Jenkins has a bright future. But that will be a tough sell to the five or six others who are cut and to the remaining players in the locker room, who will privately conclude that Jenkins’ first-round status bought him another year on the roster. One more note about Jenkins: He gives the team almost no value on special teams. There’s always the chance the 49ers could cut Jenkins this season, but I would think they would want to give him at least one more year and see what he can do in 2014.  There’s also a chance the light comes on for him at some point this year.
