Gotta love that Baalke stays true to himself and to his board...

Baalke putting AJ's name in the envelope the night before just blew Mike Lombardi's claim that we were gonna take Irvin out of the water. It also proves that either we blew smoke up his ass or his source with the 49ers is actually some 19 year old pimply faced armchair scout on twitter claiming to be someone he is not.

You guys keep laughing but I just don't why they keep taking guys lower rank them so . Hill would have been a good WR in our offense but oh well. I don't hate the pick for wide out just the person who we picked. Way to early IMO. If he went in round two I wouldn't be so mad . I will just have to wait and see if the guy is worthily of a first round pick.

There are reports that the Rams were targeting him with one of their 3 second rounders, so we might not of gotten him had we traded down. Also he was the highest rated player on our board, so while your eyes are ga ga for Hill and so were the eyes of many analysts and experts, the front office felt Jenkins was a better prospect than Hill.

I started making these when I got sick of Adam Schefter spoiling the picks prior to the commissioner's announcement:

Many beat reporters were spoiling picks on Twitter last night, I know that Kawakami was one of them because I unfollowed his dumba$$. Hopefully Goodell gets a message out to those idiots today and it doesn't happen.

I agree with Baalke in regards to if you want a player, go get him. I agree. I'm not pissed. Surprised and shocked but not pissed at the A.J. Jenkins pick. Hopefully, we can get a CB and an OG tonight and I'll be happy.

The goal was to give back the suspension for the television coverage. Can't censor free media. I hopped off twitter around pick 25 but ended up having a buddy texting me and ruining the pick. At first I thought he meant J.Jenkins when I read the text, lol.

You are getting way too fascinated with draft rankings. If the guy was supposed to be a second round pick and we take him at the end of the first round, who cares? The scouting department felt like Jenkins was the better prospect. By your logic it was a bad move to take Aldon Smith too early.

What do they gain by announcing the pick early ?

I'd rather they use the few minutes waiting for the pick to be announced to type up their thoughts on the pick in 140 characters or less and post it once announced than tell me who is going to picked before it is announced.

In Baalke we trust. I was surprised by the name, but the pick makes sense and they not only targeted him, they have a role and plan for how he will fit and flourish in the offense. He runs good routes (better than Crabs already), gains separation (the biggest bust factor why college WRs can't last in the pros), and has natural hands to make a variety of catches. He's also taller than I thought for a labeled "speed" guy. Hill's measurables are sexy but when you look at Jenkins measurables and skill set, they're very impressive.

In reality, they drafted a younger (possibly better) Mike Wallace type of player, without giving up huge $ and having to deal with an "I'm better than Fitz" attitude.

Madirishman

Nice tidbit from the ESPN article on AJ poster earlier:

Jenkins takes pride in his versatility. During his four-year career in Champaign, the 6-foot-1 receiver lined up in a variety of spots on the field, and even handled kickoff return duties his first two years in college.

"I can play everywhere,” he said. “I learned every position. I can play outside, slot, you name it. I'm used to learning three to four different positions, so I believe that will also be a strength of mine."

Position versatility, speed, natural hands, elite agility and gains separation. Why wasn't Jenkins rated higher? I'm guessing he was 20-25th ranked prospect on the Niners board.

49ersfan_87
04-27-2012, 12:10 PM
He's fast, runs good routes, gets open, insanely productive in college despite mediocre QB play, good work ethic, no off the field issues, and comes "gold star" approved from Harbaugh and Baalke.

I can see a best case scenario of Greg Jennings/Santonio Holmes/Brandon Lloyd (not all 3 players at once, obviously). He's a playmaker and we'll be happy with the pick once the games start.

I have settled into AJ Jenkins pick from last night did some research and do believe he will be a good player on our offense. I was just shocked and though we would have gone after the other big targeted players like Hill or Fleener.Fleener would could still get in the second round.

I was upset about Aldon Smith pick last year in the top 10 because I wanted us to draft Jake Locker or wide out. But that is over and done with and I'm please with Aldon now he is a beast on our defense . I will trust for Balkee and JH and who we draft in the second and be happy with it. All for know , can't wait until tonight.

Madirishman

Yes. the name wasn't as sexy as some others but the skills are there. This isn't a Rashaun Woods or a Kentwan Balmer head-scratcher type of pick.

I agree 100% that the 49ers WILL NOT take any players I have in mind anymore. I have a couple Guards and a couple CBs in mind for rds 2 and 3 and I know we won't get any of them. Lol. Maybe if we combined our efforts and all focused on the same player that we DON'T WANT, then the niners will actually pick one of our guys. Lol.

On that note... I want Burfict in round 2!

I really like the Jenkins pick. I think all of us were a bit enamored with the idea of nabbing a redzone threat. I 100% agree with the comparison to Victor Cruz, that was my exact thought when I watched the Northwestern game video.

My best guess for our next pick is OG. Lots of good interior linemen left. Brandon Brooks or Osemele would be great.

Soooo excited to see how they use Lamichael. LOVE this pick. Only concern is how they use both Hunter and James as I think they're similar runners. Lamichael is more dynamic overall though.

Mayock was talking about using him similarly to Sproles and Bush in NO. Would be awesome.

dan77733
04-27-2012, 08:15 PM
I dont like the James pick because he's basically another version of Kendall Hunter. Would have preferred Boykin but at least this means that Jacobs and most likely Dixon will be gone by final cuts.

Stocking up on offensive playmakers with speed and homerun ability! I love it. Moss, Manningham, Jenkins, James...its great.

If we can get a redzone threat at TE in the 3rd (Lardarius Green) our offense will have totally been revamped.

Awesome highlights of James. Only thing I dont like is that 90% of his carries were out of the shotgun. I'll be shocked if that works in the NFL as much as it did in college.

At least, we have some offensive playmakers on the team and am I the only one who thinks that when Kaepernick takes over, our running game will be finesse dual threat with Hunter and James? I dont even think that Baalke and Harbaugh are going to add a power back after Gore because it just seems that the offense is going to move into a fast paced up tempo style.

If we can get Boykin in the 3rd, I'll be happy but im guessing that it will be another player we're not expecting.

Using the trade chart pick #92 was worth 132 and pick #97 was worth 112 points leaving a 20 point differences. I believe future picks are worth 1/2 their value, so using the top pick of round 5 (worth 43) that makes it an equally trade according to the chart.

Tidbits from the Harbaugh/Baalke presser:

Jim Harbaugh said he can envision LaMichael James as a feature back in the future. Mentioned Ray Rice as a similar-type runner. (Branch)

Jim Harbaugh said he will look at James as a three-down back and even a short-yardage player. (Lynch)

Harbaugh said he could envision going into the season with 4 RBs, 1 fullback and Rock Cartwright as a special teamer. (Barrows)

Trent Baalke says LaMichael James is definitely a gold-helmet (high character) guy and that 49ers are confident in his make-up. (Kawakami)

Harbaugh also floated the possibility of the 49ers carrying 6 WRs.

Man, I really wanted Doug Martin....but James will be a dynamic weapon and just an a terror to deal with for defenses. Cant wait to see him take a fly sweep around the corner and to the house. And I think Ginn needs to be very nervous. James is a dynamic returner as well. Jenkins takes his snaps on offense and James might make him expendable in return game. Guess we'll see how the roster shakes out in a few months but its hard not to see us keeping 4 RBs now.

Really don't like Ta'amu. He's a guy who never seemed to play up to his physical talents when I saw him.

Boykin, Crick, or Ronnell Lewis would all be pretty sweet. But it'll probably be someone none of us are thinking of right now. I'm pretty confident it won't be a QB, RB, K or P. That's literally it. Other than that, I could see any position being the pick. That's not a testament to the team's weakness, but rather the strength and depth of the roster that I really think they can afford to take BPA because there's not a glaring need for a starter or immediate depth anywhere.

Im actually pretty bummed about Seattle getting Russell Wilson. If he were 3 inches taller, he would have been the second QB off the board. That kid has everything else you look for in a QB and I knew some team would get a steal. Just too bad it had to be to someone in our division. I can see him and CK having some epic battles in the near future if he is indeed given a fair shot to earn that gig in a few years because he's better than Flynn.

But enough about Seattle, since the Bears grabbed Hardin, my wish list for round 4 is down one. Burris, Thorpe, Marvin Jones, and Trent Robinson are all guys I'm hoping for.

Jenkins, Hunter, James + Cox means Ginn may be in serious trouble of losing his roster spot. All have experience in the return game/s.

Jacobs is no guarantee to make this roster by any stretch.

But competition is a good thing. TC & preseason should be exciting with all the competition we are creating on offense.

Ginn may have 95-yd. KO returns for TDs, but can't catch a fwd. pass. He's a stone hands receiver.

Just nauseated over the pkg. Baalke assembled in this draft. IDK WTF their priorities are but they didn't match anything the pundits thought they were.

Who did you want to see them take in the early rounds before the draft started?

Their priorities seem pretty clear to me. Last year it seemed that Vernon Davis was our only receiving option that could get any kind of seperation in the passing game. All other WRs seemed bottled up most of the time. They bring in Moss and Manningham in FA and draft Jenkins and James so far in the draft. Seems to me that they want players that can gain seperation in the passing game. Hammering away at our weakest area doesn't seem like a bad idea.

I thought they'd go G in the 1st or 2nd rds, but this just tells me they must be comfortable with Kilgore or that they have a mid round guy in mind that they are hoping to get to compete with him or to provide depth at least.

Ginn may have 95-yd. KO returns for TDs, but can't catch a fwd. pass. He's a stone hands receiver.

Just nauseated over the pkg. Baalke assembled in this draft. IDK WTF their priorities are but they didn't match anything the pundits thought they were.

Maybe they thought the team was set at all positions, looked for depth, everything a luxury pick, but that's just plainly delusional.

They stuck to their board. When their pick came up, it was best player available.

Just because their player didn't match the player you or the pundits believed it should be does not make them delusional.

Let us keep in mind here that they get the paychecks for scouting and selecting players - you do not.

Jenkins, Hunter, James + Cox means Ginn may be in serious trouble of losing his roster spot. All have experience in the return game/s.

Jacobs is no guarantee to make this roster by any stretch.

But competition is a good thing. TC & preseason should be exciting with all the competition we are creating on offense.

Im going to go on record now and say Gore, Hunter, and James, barring injuries are virtually locks to make the team. Cartright will make the team because he's a STs ace so I dont count him towards the RBs, though RB is his position. Now if we can grab a rookie or two at another position....say OLB or safety, that may mean Rock has to battle it out with a couple of young guys to prove their worth on STs. Then you have Jacobs and Dixon battling for the power back role. Now unless Jacobs plans on playing STs, he will have to clearly out-perform Dixon for a roster spot. If its even remotely close, Dixon wins out because of his special teams ability. I can see only 3 backs being active on gamedays and that third back will defintely have some STs duties. Gore and Hunter are a lock to be active on Sundays. I could see James being active, and us activating 4 guys in the backfield ONLY if James becomes our PR/KR and moves Ginn off the roster.

Madirishman
04-28-2012, 11:06 AM
I don't think Cartright is a lock for the roster as they may continue to add other special teams depth today.

They might have made 2 "luxury" picks, but these players were specifically targeted for roles on the team where there we holes/needs, so in actuality, they did draft need, not just blind, hopeful depth. The teams like the Niners that have a plan of how each player fits into their system do better than those that try to just accumulate talent in positions of need.

It's got to be that Boykin is undersized too. With many more Big WRs and TEs being used downfield, it's hard for a guy that is 5'9'' to compete for jump balls, etc. I wanted him but I'm happy with the Looney pick and the value they got in moving down.

From Maiocco:


General manager Trent Baalke got visibly upset in the 49ers' war room when the Ravens drafted Delaware guard Gino Gradkowski with the 98th overall pick. It could be that Baalke and Jim Harbaugh were targeting him with the 97th pick, and thought he would still be around for the 103rd pick, which they traded down to with the Dolphins.

Yeah the fact that Philly took him makes me think some teams are expecting Boykin to start on the PUP or have to sit out longer. The Eagles have a history of nabbing players with serious medical concerns:
Jack Ikegwuonu, Cornelius Ingram and last year when they signed Steve Smith

Madirishman
04-28-2012, 12:43 PM
Yes, I knew Boykin likely wasn't going to happen, especially after the Niners first 2 draftees have already added some speed and return ability competition; part of Boykin's value. They have a CB and/or S targeted for later in the Draft I'm sure, perhaps with the next pick.

Realistically, he isn't a great fit nor what Baalke looks for in a CB. Can you see him trying to line up against Fitz or Floyd anytime soon, with them jumping up to snatch a pass, their crotch in Boykin's face? I can't...or don't want to.

Projected Round 6-7 on a lot of Draft profiles. I see his talent/value as more where he was selected.

Kid has been solid since high school but has battled injuries. He is definitely an interior mauler type of player. C and G depth with potential to start if coached up.

I may have to go with AJ

I agree, are we the Raiders of the 2012 draft? lol

I think AJ was the reach of the 1st round by default however, there was no other real reaches other than Irvin and I think I would take Irvin over Jenkins.

Because Hill and Fleener were on the board!

That doesn't make it a reach, it just means you don't like the pick. It's a "reach" if he was picked long before anyone else would've taken him. The Rams rumor seems solid, so I wouldn't say he's a reach.

Besides that he is THE guy Harbaalke targetted so lets trust them for not going with the hype surrounding Hill. Jenkins may not have the huge upside like Hill but at this moment he is a lot more polished. Besides that they obviously had their 22 starters like they wanted and did go for usefull players in the weakest area.

Overal must say i think they did a good job and i am curious to see which udfa Will be signed.

So if two teams wanted to draft Streeter in the 1st round then it wouldn't have been a reach if we picked him @ #30?? Great logic. A reach is a reach if you pick him long before he SHOULD be picked. I don't give a sh!% what STL thinks.

This is what I love, if any other team took a WR we all had going in the late 2nd-4th round you would most likely agree that it was a reach. But so many people are ignorant homers that they automatically assign more value to somebody for the sole reason that he is now on your team.

Get real before THE draft began Baalke did write Jenkins name and put it in an envelope saying that is the Guy. If you like Guy you take him. Jenkins was early to mid second rounder and got picked bottom first not really reach seeing that that group was pretty big from guys who could go in that range. Also there if you look at what they did instead of looking who they did not pick you see they filled all holes. We have enough corners and d-linemen and only needed some explosive guys on offense(Jenkins and James) o-line depth (Looney and Slowey) a pass Rushing OLB behind our good trio of OLB's and a safety behind the obvious starters.

So it's not a reach because his name was in an envelope the night before? I don't care if Baalke wrote Santa Claus a letter at Christmas asking for Jenkins, it's still a reach.

Ran a 4.52 at the combine, a little different than 4.33

Yea, I just realized the site I got his numbers from flip-flopped his and Josh Robinson's numbers. May not be the elite athlete I thought he was but still heck of a talent who's tape is where my excitement for him comes.

And I hate when ppl start judging a draft haul, hours after its over. So if you judge last year's draft on paper, we should have never been 13-3 right? C'mon ppl, its getting old. I like the talent we've added. Do I like all the picks? Not even. It wasn't sexy but it was a effective draft. And most importantly, I trust the man running it. Lets see what ppl have to say about this draft 8 months from now.

Well, they obviously wanted Jenkins. That is undeniable. He wouldn't have been there at #61, so they could have:

a) taken him at pick 30 or
b) traded picks to move up from pick 61

Which would you have preferred?

too much negativity. you guys act like the draft is gonna make or break our season and stephen hill or coby fleener were gonna be our saviors because we are soooooooo terrible.

we bring back the leagues best defense and added some nice pieces through free agency on offense. it didn't matter who we got this year in the draft because they won't be playing much, i presume. just trust that the staff (you know, those guys that are PAID to do this ****) did the right thing and didn't draft based on opinions of draftniks on message boards.

lets be honest here, did any of you know who the hell stephen hill was BEFORE he ran is 40?

Not surprising to come in here and see the broken hearted yelling about how much we didn't win the "name draft". Robert Quinn or Prince Amukumara would have been more of a "name" pick for us last year in the 1st round over Aldon. You guys upset about that? Most of us thought that G or WR would be the 1st pick. It was a WR and Jenkins would have went early to mid 2nd if we didn't get him where we did. Everyone had a hard-on for Hill and he wasn't even the 1st WR off the board in the 2nd round.

I was surprised when Jenkins name was called and when James was selected, but it should be pretty obvious that they want offensive players that can get more seperation in the passing game. Moss, Manningham, Jenkins, and James. That's a complete overhaul on offense. That's where this team needed to improve and that's where we have improved.

Have some faith, fellas.

Its a reach to whom? To you? Of course because you dont like the pick. Your logic is flawed because you assuming everyone has the same grade on players and everyone's board is the same. If you we really liked Jenkins and knew he wouldnt be there when we picked in the 2nd(which he would not have been) you take the player you most covet at 30, end of discussion. Each team determines value. Not draft pundits and media draft mocks. Was Cully a reach last year as a 3rd rounder? What about trading up to draft Kilgore before most expected him to go off the board? What about drafting a conference player of the year defender at DE and making him a FB? Since when has Baalke given a rat's ass what anybody else puts value on? He determine's what a player's value is to this team.

It is a herd mentality around here. Hill runs fast. He's big. Megatron and Thomas played college ball where he did. We love Hill!!! All of us... pretty much.

Fleener ran faster than expected. Good size. Harbaugh is familiar with him. We can use 2 TE sets like New England does!!! We love Fleener!!! Again all of us... pretty much.

But some of us realize that there is a damn good chance that Baalke is not going to pick those guys. This is his job. Not ours. We are ok with falling in line like good little fans that we are and trusting him. We will support and cheer for anyone that becomes part of the San Francisco 49ers! Nothing wrong with that.

No that's not an assumption I made actually. I don't like Jenkins that much, I think he was a reach at 30, is that ok with you? Now the value we get from sites like this with reputable scouts is questionable indeed but that's the best we can get.

The majority of the players that are drafted people forget about. Like 90% of them. This is probably the most overrated function in the NFL. This is why I stopped looking into people's "stock" rising or falling years ago. And the same reason why I stopped caring about watching the entire thing live. Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh have proven thus far, that they know what they are doing for the most part. That doesn't mean people can't have differing opinions when it comes to the draft, but at the same time folks need to realize that this is just a small piece of the puzzle and won't define our season. The Saints didn't have any early picks this year, doesn't mean they won't be playoff contenders still. People were saying Aldon Smith was a reach last year too. Oops.

I don't know if it's grandiose to say all the other teams in our division added more to their teams than we did,it's not necessarily true but it's certainly not unreasonable to say so. I would tend to agree if I had to give a yes/no answer. Or is that too negative for this cheerleader forum?

I don't have a problem with dissenting opinion. But some of the logic is flawed, which is what causes the reactions you're getting. The term "reach" is so damn subjective. Especially when you're picking 30th. The prospects from about 15 to 40 are so tightly grouped together, it really just comes down to a team's personal preference.

Best of all, with the drafting of James, Jacobs should be gone which alone makes me happy and Jenkins seems to be more pro ready than Hill would have been so hopefully, he can challenge Crabtree and Manningham. I wont count Moss since him even being around for the entire season is 50/50 and he's basically a one year deal anyway.

Purely short yardage and goaline at the expense of Dixon I think.

Jeez.....reading the posts from the last few pages has surprised me as I thought that I would be mr. negative. LOL. Instead, im disappointed that we didnt draft Fleener at 30 but after watching a video of Jenkins and James, I must admit that im excited to see what both of them can do. Best of all, with the drafting of James, Jacobs should be gone which alone makes me happy and Jenkins seems to be more pro ready than Hill would have been so hopefully, he can challenge Crabtree and Manningham. I wont count Moss since him even being around for the entire season is 50/50 and he's basically a one year deal anyway.

What do you think the James pick means for Kendall?? How do you give them both carries? Don't tell me they are thinking of parting with Gore....

believe it or not, this girl on twitter was actually trying to make that sound plausible (getting rid of gore in a year or two)

I also think James poses more of a threat to Kendall which I don't fully understand. This is the reason I did not like the James pick. I do think James is an upgrade don't get me wrong but I really like Kendall.

It would save some cash but would be a huge mistake I think. In 2 years though..I could see that.

That's not what he meant the point was Jenkins was a lot more highly rated among NFL teams.

Per CBS Sports' Rob Rang, the 49ers, Jets, and Ravens all would have taken Bruce Irvin in the first round had he made it to their pick.

Thank you

Not sure if you are singling me out since the only other person involved in a debate today joined before you did apparently but I have been concise and professional. It seems some of your, "regulars" are of the opinion that it is ok to attack people personally if they have a dissenting opinion. When that happens of course the other person will respond and before you know it you have 3 pages of garbage posts. I would disagree as to who you are assigning fault to however, if it is even appropriate for you to assign blame to anyone for that matter...

Concise and "Knowledgable"...LOL....from what I can tell if you don't want to hug Baalke around the knees every time he drafts, you get rude personal attacks in return. Yeah very concise and knowledgeable indeed...

EDIT: That was unnecessary Shupp
