The San Francisco 49ers needed to improve their receiving corp early in the draft. Instead of going for a wideout like Rueben Randle or Stephen Hill, the 49ers passed and reached for Illinois receiver AJ Jenkins.

Jenkins may not be the best prospect available at the time, but he has tremendous upside and could blossom into a very good receiver for the Niners.
