    49ers selected a college running back in the 4th round of the draft and Hayne is bumped down to 5th on their RB depth chart and 7th when you throw in their fullbacks. You don't waste a 4th round pick if you think you have the answers in your current squad. As much as the Australian media tries to pretend otherwise there's no way he makes the 53 man roster - this is all about a reality documentary earning squillions for Hayne and the 49ers getting merchandise sales to gullible Australians.

    When everyone wakes up Hayne will be looking for a club with salary cap space and the NRL will bend over backwards to get him back. Not sure we want sooky lala though.

    Why would anyone care? He doesn't play for Manly, doesn't even play NRL.
    My only interest is that I love to see people succeed against the odds and, at the very least, having a go. And fair play to him for that!

    Hayne will make the NFL as a Kick or Punt return. Maybe in his second year he can transition to RB or FB. But they wont risk him in his first year. Not only is he a rookie but he is only learning now how to play

    Running back was always going to be a stretch for him first year in. I'll be interested to see how motivated he is to stick it out if he misses out this season. Will he throw the towel in straight away ??

    You can guarantee that if he comes back to the NRL then Smith and Co. will bend over backwards to get him back at Parra with their special war chest.

    The guy has talent and if you could rely on him delivering that talent on a consistent basis then he would be a massive asset to any team. My experience is that Jarrod is mercurial to say the least.

    I agree, and reckon he'll definitely stick around if he doesn't make the cut this year. It's his career ambition, after all. You don't give up on a life's dream after 6 months lol.

    I didn't & still don't think he will make it.

    Hundreds do want what Hayne is doing every year for every club in the nfl and obviously most get cut.

    He will be back & agree with @Matabele that the nrl will do everything and anything to get him back in the nrl , maybe Titans ! Lol

    If he heads back to the NRL he will get signed by the Sydney Rorters or NRL Titans .
    Manly may have plenty of room in the salary cap but cant compete with the $50,000 the rorters can afford or NRL rule 47 clause 18b ......... The NRL have finial say in all player contracts and at there discretion may top up a players contract at an undisclosed sum that benefits the NRL or channel 9.

    I can imagine the Eels magically squeezing him into their ranks somehow.

    he'll be selected and will feature as a kick /punt return. His natural skillset transitioning from NRL taking an returning bombs means that he has the game already for this. It is whether or not he can handle the additional padding, which from what I have seen he can.

    The big question is whether he has the aptitude to transition to a RB /FB otherwise he will remain a kick returner. Limited time on pitch and certainly reduced dollars

    He won't have a choice. He's too old for a team to take a chance on him especially when he has basically no idea what it's like to even play.

    Why would a team take a chance on him when they can take an I drafted guy out of college and give him the minimum. If Hayne was 21 maybe this would have worked but by 28 most RB's careers are finished.

    Add to that the fact that the NFL as far as recruiting goes is about as conservative as it gets, he seriously has no chance. Maybe he hangs around on some practice squads earning 80K a year but at that point, why bother...

    im hoping he makes it, if not on the 53 man squad then the practice squad.

    He has all the mini and rookie camps before the main training camp to learn everything and mainly will start as a punt/kick returner so will go with his natural abilities

    I'd say Reggie Bush has first crack at that stuff.

    That means I don't have to cheer for him as the niners are my team in the NFC and the Chiefs are my team in the AFC.

    I still think he'd have a slim shot at kick returner and might surprise some.

    The niners have had some injuries last year and if that continues even a seventh may get a run from the practice squad.

    At least if he is not playing for the Pats he will at least catch fully inflated balls. :happy:

    This is all practise so he can return to the nrl and the cowboys and catch JT's forward passes.

    reggie bush wont be anywhere near kick returns. its a position usually occupied by 3rd or 4th choice wide receivers

    Frankly I'm surprised that he wasn't selected by the patriots as starting quarterback in the recent Super Bowl

    You don't carry a specialist in those positions. Normally one of your back-up Wide Receivers or Cornerbacks is adequate.
