2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DEEBO SAMUEL: South Carolina, 5112 214 4.46. Two year starter from Inman, SC. After an early career that was marred by injuries (hamstring and broken leg), Samuel finally put together a full year in 2018, earning first-team All SEC honors. The very non-traditional receiver has shown the ability to use his thickness and strength as an asset while hiding them as a liability. Plays a strong, blue collar game that shows up when it matters most. While his movement isn’t anything that will scare defenders and put them on their heels, he understands how to get open and will not be deterred by contact in traffic. Would be a different kind of slot receiver but much like Hines Ward, one that can get things done at a high level for a long time. Thickly built like a running back but has uncharacteristically long arms and big hands for his frame. A strong, powerful presence on the field at all times. Lower body girth provides balance and stability. Efficient use of space and shows minimal wasted motion on all levels. Precise and developed route runner throughout the entire tree. Can quick twitch himself open whenever he wants. A smart and savvy player against man and zone coverage alike. Tracks the long ball well and will win more 50/50 balls that most receivers his size. Consistently breaks through initial contact with the ball in his hands. Tough and willing. Needs more technique against press coverage, gets caught in the mess too easily. Has had more than his fair share of injuries to his lower half. 2018 stats: 62- 882, 14.2 ypr, 11 TD, 23-570 KOR, 24.8 avg, 1 TD. OSR:12/42. First/second round. (A-31 3/8, H-10, VJ-39, SS-4.15).
