    49ers trade A.J. Jenkins to Chiefs for Jonathan Baldwin


    49ers easily got the better talent in this deal, imo...

    I am very interested to see how this pans out.

    I am, too. I found it curious that the best "diagnosis" the 49ers could come up with for Jenkins' poor progress was 'lack of swagger'. He might do better with different coaches.

    Interesting trade. I look forward to seeing what Jenkins can do with different surroundings. For many players being traded or cut is an eye opening experience and they then flourish with their new team. I really like Jenkins alot coming out of college.

    I did too, but I thought he was a MASSIVE reach by the 49ers in the late first.

    Makes sense for both teams. Reid can use Jenkins in the slot while Harbaugh is wanting a bigger WR who can go across the middle, ala Crabtree.

    Some teams own up to a mistake and move a player, we keep the guy on the roster so that it doesn't look like a mistake and then just let them go at the end of their contract. It's an ego thing with the GM so that he's not perceived as having drafted the wrong guy.

    What picks by Rick Smith demonstrate this?
