We study the enhancement of accuracy, by means of the convolution post-processing technique, for discontinuous Galerkin(DG) approximations to hyperbolic problems. Previous investigations have focused on the superconvergence obtained by this technique for elliptic, time-dependent hyperbolic and convection-diffusion problems. In this paper, we demonstrate that it is possible to extend this post-processing technique to the hyperbolic problems written as the Friedrichs' systems by using an upwind-like DG method. We prove that the $L_2$-error of the DG solution is of order $k+1/2$, and further the post-processed DG solution is of order $2k+1$ if $Q_k$-polynomials are used. The key element of our analysis is to derive the $(2k+1)$-order negative norm error estimate. Numerical experiments are provided to illustrate the theoretical analysis.
