Jarryd Hayne drawing swarms of media at minicamp

It may not be huge news here in the states, but it is drawing huge attention in Australia. Jarryd Hayne, officially listed as a running back and kick returner with the San Francisco 49ers, is getting more attention at the team's three-day minicamp than any other player.

He trained with his new quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, during the offseason.

Below is the photo of the media surrounding Hayne.

While there isn't normally much to take away from the first day of drills, here are three encouraging reports from Friday's start to rookie minicamp. 1. Danny Gray impresses Gray, a third-round selection in last month's NFL Draft, was reportedly the best player at minicamp, and it wasn't close.
