The speedy Alfred Alonzo “A. J.” Jenkins was admittedly a solid reach when the San Francisco 49ers selected him with the 30th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. While Jenkins did Amass 1166 yards during his final season at the University of Illinois, scouts were concerned with his lack of size (he was only 190lbs) limiting his ability to get open, and his inconsistent motor that made him prone to taking plays off.
But Jenkins’ time in San Francisco was such a catastrophe that before the start of his second season in the league, the 49ers already had enough of him, trading him away to the Kansas City Chiefs. Less than two years after that, the Chiefs released him, with his NFL career being all but over.
