49ers | A.J. Jenkins helps make receiver corps deeper

San Francisco 49ers rookie WR A.J. Jenkins, the team's first-round selection, joins what is now a rather deep receiving corps in San Francisco. He joins WR Michael Crabtree and newcomers WRs Randy Moss and Mario Manningham on the team. Jenkins said he is going to learn a lot from the team's veteran receivers, but he feels he can help the team during his rookie year.

"I think I could do great, like going downfield. I could play the slot, the outside, I could do the option routes. I mean I could do it all," Jenkins said. General manager Trent Baalke said Jenkins is a sure-handed receiver and very good with the ball in his hands. "If there's an area that A.J.'s got to get better, it's probably the weight room, and he will," Baalke said.
