No. 30 San Francisco 49ers: WR A.J. Jenkins, Illinois -- Jenkins will provide the 49ers with an athletic playmaker willing to go over the middle. Although many scouts thought he was a second-round pick, his ability to create separation with cornerbacks also makes his a deep threat.

Comment: Another target for Alex Smith, Jenkins caught 90 balls for 1,276 yards and eight touchdowns for Illinois last season.
