49ers First Round Pick - AJ Jenkins
Headed down to Santa Clara to photograph the press conference introducing San Francisco 49ers draft pick AJ Jenkins.
Jenkins is a wide receiver from Jacksonville, Florida who will be graduating from Illinios in May with a degree in sports management and was chosen 30th overall.
He told a great story about his cousin pranking him, calling Jenkins' phone pretending to be a representative from an NFL team. Being told by his agent he'd likely go in the second round, and already being faked out once, when he received a real call from the 49ers, he didn't believe his cousin who was trying to bring the phone to him... and the cousin ended up kicking down the bathroom door to get the phone to Jenkins!
So what's going to be his first move now that his dreams are coming true and he's joining the NFL? - "My first purchase will probably be to buy my mom a new bathroom door." Hahaha!
