Summary

Samuel has the inside track on a Week 1 starting job. He projects as a slot specialist, boasting a running back's build and dynamic run-after-catch skills at 5'11" and 214 pounds. There's little question he brings more to the slot table than the likes of Trent Taylor and Kendrick Bourne. Still, he's versatile and explosive enough to play both inside and out, so one-speed weapon Marquise Goodwin is also on notice. Samuel may lack for consistent usage off the bat, but profiles as an occasionally strong target for Jimmy Garoppolo. He'll open behind George Kittle on the pecking order, but could certainly leapfrog Dante Pettis and make a run at 60 rookie receptions. (May 11)
