49ers HC Jim Harbaugh on Thursday was full of praise for first-round pick WR A.J. Jenkins. "Very gung-ho. Very fast, fast, fast. He's got excellent hands," Harbaugh said. "He's got the ability to get in and out of cuts with his foot speed. And the turnover, he doesn't get stuck in routes. He doesn't get stuck at the top of the routes. He's able to get out of those cuts. And he's right on track. A.J. Jenkins is going to be just fine."
That's vintage Harbaugh, and you would not expect anything but positives and praise from him when it comes to his young players. The truth, however, is that Jenkins had a rough spring. He had a hard time staying on his feet, fighting for position and often - very often -- was on the ground after the play. And this was in non-contact practices.
