49ers’ head coach Jim Harbaugh told 95.7 The Game that A.J Jenkins, Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette are competing for Michael Crabtree’s spot.
“We’ll put Jenkins, Patton, Ricardo Lockette at the same position and let them compete and emerge,” Harbaugh said on the O’Connell and Steinmetz show, per CSNBayArea.com.
“The good news is somebody will emerge because they have to. Then on the other side, Anquan Boldin, Chad Hall . . . Marlon Moore has been doing some really nice things in the offseason. Joe Hastings will compete on the other side.”
After being taken in the first round of last year’s draft, I would think Jenkins is the front-runner to take over for Crabtree.
