I think he'll be fine, honestly. He'll never be a superstar but he could well become a serviceable player. He's an athletic freak and those don't grow on trees, teams will always take a flyer on one (Carolina has a guy who played basketball at a bible college on their roster, he hadn't played organized football in years). He will take some time to learn the idiosyncrasies though.

e: BYU has kind of made it their thing to try to convert rugby playing Samoans into college football players. Not sure any have gone pro though.

This guy's dad is a Fijian.

There are loads of ok Samoan, Tongan and Fijan Rugby League (and Rugby Union players). This guy really was our best - at least as far as skills that theoretically suit NFL go. Not "just another islander" if that makes sense. Certainly worth the risk. I'm wondering if they'll give him a spot on the roster just so another side can't steal him. He may not be 100% ready to go for the start of the season, but by the end of this season, or start of next, they won't want to have lost him. And from all reports the 49ers are a bit of a project team this year anyway.

Rugby League players do it all the time - and dropped ball is just as big a sin in that sport - plus the balls are bigger and rounder, so easier to drop.

It seems very negative to me. I get minimising risk - but there is also a huge potential gain. I also think you rarely find a sportsman that shines by doing the same thing as everyone else.

And in any case, I'm really not sure he did it that much. I've not seen anything negative in the media about it - and I've been trying to avoid Australian media.
That's why I asked

And it was just facebook conjecture

Yes they are, and I've heard something similar from other sources. Looks pretty good. I watched his highlights and he looks pretty good. Few minor issues (too much ball switching in his hands), but overall a potentially solid player. He'll make the team and return kicks at the very least. Was totally hung out to dry by his QB on that drop/fumble; not a fair pass for him to get.

Not in football, but in soccer yes, so I understand what you mean.

Hayne looking an absolute star on the punt return again, from all reports?

No one else is following an obscure Aussie punt returner who gets 5 touches per game.

No one else? That's just plain wrong...obviously he has a huge following in Au, but he's trending across the US too. But that's ok, I'm used to Americans dismissing him...First he was no chance at the squad. Now it's "he'll hardly play"...

45 yards of rushing so far this game (in only his second ever game of American Football)

Averaging 28 yards from 3 punt returns today. 21 yards per return for the preseason so far.

"obscure" indeed.

"Jarryd Hayne" is third highest trend on twitter in the Bay Area over the past hour.

I'm not dismissing him, I just don't care. This is a thread for the 2 most popular sports in the country and it's full of Jarryd Hayne posts.

Because he plays one of those two most popular sports...And is generating huge interest in San Francisco and Australia, plus a cult following in parts of the US
