It's a comparison thing really - he may have 2 years on practice squad - but even if it takes that long he'd still be younger than some rookies. 24 and 25 year olds get drafted all the time, and he's only 21.
I don't expect to see him on the team this year - but he must have special teams possibility just because of his size and speed.
If there is a roster spot, keep this bloke. You're right, he's still young. The 49ers have the coaches to develophim. With his speed and athletic ability, JH may put him just about anywhere. He has the physical tools, but he needs to learn football terms, leverage, reading plays and techniques. I'm not sure how intellegent this guy is. But, I'll have his mammoth butt in a goaline as a fullback.lol
