A.J. Jenkins Profile
The San Francisco 49ers have signed first-round wide receiver A.J. Jenkins to a four-year contract.
The deal is worth roughly $6.9 million and includes a signing bonus of over $3.4 million.
Jenkins was drafted 30th overall out of Illinois.
Jenkins reportedly struggled at offseason minicamps and organized team activities.
Jenkins has good size and speed at 6-foot, 190 pounds, running a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine.
He also posted a 38 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 10-4 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds a dozen times. At his campus Pro Day workout, Jenkins registered a 4.12 in the 20-yard shuttle and a 6.73 in the three-cone drill.
The All-Big Ten Conference wide receiver led the conference with 84 catches for 1,194 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
He caught 56 passes for 749 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.
Jenkins was a blue-chip recruit who chose Illinois over Florida, Florida State, Miami and South Carolina and played immediately as a true freshman.
