Jim Harbaugh on A.J. Jenkins: “A.J. had his best week of football since he’s been a 49er”

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and head coach Jim Harbaugh are very happy with what they’ve seen from second-year receiver A.J. Jenkins.

“A.J. I thought, the last two days of last week (OTA) had the best two days he’s had since I’ve been here. Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette – they’re all stepping up. And it’s just going to be a continuing process. We’re trying to get these guys ready for training camp to come in compete and win a job. And it’s happening.”

Roman was asked how Jenkins has been standing out.

“Oh, just made some clutch catches for us moving the ball,” Roman said. “Just made plays, did all the right things, made plays when he had the opportunity. And he just needs to continue to do that.”

Harbaugh is just as pleased with Jenkins as Roman is.

“Thought A.J. had his best week of football since he’s been a 49er the last four days of OTAs. And he continues to build on that. … Anybody that’s going from Year 1 to Year 2, it’s a great window of opportunity to improve in the kind of fashion that you’ll never have again in your career. Because you’re going from doing things for the first time to now everything that you do, you’ve already done.”

It sounds like Jenkins is stepping up so far.
