49ers offensive coaches remain confident in 2012 first-rounder A.J. Jenkins' future despite what was essentially a "redshirt" rookie year.
Jenkins played just 42 regular season snaps and none in the NFC title game. "He has a great foundation underneath him," said OC Greg Roman. "So when he has to become a major player in what we do, he can jump right in." Added WRs coach John Morton, "It can be hard to just go in and be thrown in the fire and you're not ready. This is going to be really good for A.J. The sky is the limit for him."
