He's an undrafted rookie. He's only played two games of organized football in his life. And he's quickly becoming one of the most electrifying players in the NFL. People just can't stop talking about 49ers kick returner Jarryd Hayne.
"He's a really good punt returner I mean that's pretty special." "He looks incredibly comfortable returning kicks," analysts from Comcast SportsNet said.
