A.J. Jenkins struggles at San Francisco 49ers minicamp

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver A.J. Jenkins might find himself fifth on the team's depth chart entering training camp, The Press Democrat reported Saturday.

In a review of the Niners minicamp last week, the newspaper called Jenkins, the team's top pick (No. 30 overall) in the draft, the "biggest letdown."

"He didn't play with the first- or second-team offense on Tuesday, and he didn't catch a pass in scrimmages on Wednesday," the newspaper noted. "He had trouble staying on his feet all three days, which was odd considering it was a non-contact minicamp."

Jenkins, who has yet to sign his rookie deal, appears to be far behind Michael Crabtree, Randy Moss, Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams. The newspaper said undrafted receivers Nathan Palmer and Bryan Tyms outperformed the Illinois product.
