loganschnurI heard he was gonna try to play both sides of the ball, on offense as a tight end, and on defense as a linebacker.
The guy is about 3 inches and 40lbs too small to play TE, and is about 40lbs too small to play LB. They will see what he can do on special teams, not as a returner mind you, but as a kickoff guy or gunner. Maybe install a wildcat play or two to try out on the scout team. thats it. Dude has no idea how to shed blocks, use his hands, run proper routes, proper footwork etc, etc, etc...which is 100% necessary in a league where everyone is a complete freak of nature and has been refining technique for 10+ years.
Dude is a very good athlete. Unfortunately he doesnt know the sport, at all, and that will be his greatest hinderance.
Regardless i really hope there is video of his tryouts and practices.
loganschnurI should've addressed this earlier, but in 2014 Hayne was the top try scorer, Fullback of the year, the player of year, the representative player of the year, and he won the Fittler medal. He also won the rookie of the year back in 06, he has another fullback of the year, a winger of the year, and another Dally M player of the year.
So in tally
2- Dally M Player of the Year
2- Dally M Fullback of the Year
1- RLIF International Player of the Year
1- Top Try Scorer
1- Rookie of the Year
1- Australian All-Star
1- Fittler medal
1- Representative Player of the Year
All of these awards came in 8 seasons. You can read this list of awards and it demonstrates how he could be likened to Lebron.
How many people in the world grow up wanting to be a pro rugby player? At the tops, probly around 50 million, right?
How many people grow up wanting to be a pro basketball player? conservativly, around 500 million.
Lebron is a one-in-a-generation athlete...not for his sport, but for any sport. When Hayne puts together the kind of run Lebron put together over the past 8 years, then you can enter his name into the convo. But right now its not even close.
