with the 36th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Find our draft profile of Samuel
below."Editor’s note: From April 9 2019 Dre Greenlaw Jersey , 2019Yesterday, we went over how Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown could interest Kyle Shanahan. Earlier today, the San Francisco 49ers were linked
to two wide receivers in the draft. We haven’t really talked about Deebo Samuel.
The former South Carolina standout scored 11 touchdowns while averaging over 14
yards a catch last year. Samuel is one of the best receivers in the draft after
the catch. He’s a pain to bring down. He’s much more than an athlete, and that’s
what we will highlight today. Winning at the lineDeebo makes it look easy at the
line of scrimmage. You like to see guys win just as much whether they have the
ball or not. For Samuel, he does both. Here he is, to the bottom of the
screen.At the line of scrimmage Samuel is both aggressive and decisive. Plenty
of receivers are quick enough to win, but often times you see receivers take too
long to win their release.There are two sides to every coin, though. Samuel
understands the nuance side of route running. Watch the bottom of the screen
again.It might seem like he took longer than you’d like here, but this is one of
the better reps you’ll see this draft. You’ll see plenty of receivers “dance”
without gaining any ground. Samuel attacks the corner while faking to go
outside. He has shown that he can win a handful of ways. He was equally as
effective during the Senior Bowl.Samuel is superb at the line of scrimmage. Moss
drillSamuel is 5’11”, but you’d never know it by how he plays the ball in the
air. Samuel having a 39” vertical wasn’t too surprising. He can definitely play
“above the rim.” Samuel is very good at making plays in traffic. It’s more than
his athleticism. Samuel times his jump well, contorts his body to get the best
position for him, while shielding off the DB all at once. It’s
impressive.Winning in the air is an area where the 49ers could stand to improve.
Being open in college and the NFL are two very different things. That’s what
makes guys like Deandre Hopkins special. They are able to consistently make
plays with defenders draped all over them. I’m not saying Samuel is Hopkins in
that regard, but he’s shown in just about every game that this is an area that
won’t be an issue for him in the NFL.Where he must improveFor every highlight
catch Samuel makes, he’ll mix in a focus drop. That doesn’t worry me too much.
Where Samuel must improve is at the top of his route. Everything above where he
excels is where he lacks when he goes to cut. Whether it’s rounding his routes
or taking too many steps out of his breaks, Samuel puts himself in contested
situations that he shouldn’t have to be in.Here’s what I mean by extra steps.
I’ll show one example when Samuel was and wasn’t targeted. Using my pal Ted’s
play first.Count the steps. You’d like to see Samuel take no more than two,
maximum. Those extra steps cause Samuel to drift in his routes and lose ground.
That’s how the CB makes a play. Check this play out when he was targeted. Too
many wasted movements.The ball is late, but look at Samuel drifting. That’s
consistent when you watch him. That’s an area Samuel will have to become more
efficient.The fitWe haven’t talked about Samuel after the catch. For some
insight, 600 of Samuel’s 882 yards in 2018 were after the catch. He’s so tough
to bring down. When a guy is that good with the ball in his hands, you give it
to him often. Samuel will get you out of some tough situations just by creating
on his own. Samuel had seven rushing touchdowns during his time at South
Carolina.I do think Samuel needs to improve his footwork at the top of his
routes. I also think that he struggles to sustain his suddenness prior to
getting the ball. If that’s the biggest gripes, we’re talking about a good
player.Samuel can help the 49ers at ever level of the field. Most importantly,
he can help them score touchdowns and take pressure off Jimmy Garoppolo. SANTA
CLARA Dre Greenlaw San Francisco 49ers Jersey , Calif. (AP)The San Francisco 49ers started free agency Wednesday by getting some needed help for quarterback Jimmy
Garoppolo, agreeing to a four-year contract with versatile running back Jerick
McKinnon and a five-year deal with interior offensive lineman Weston Richburg
just after the start of the new league year.The two deals fill holes on the
roster with McKinnon expected to replace departing starter Carlos Hyde and
Richburg able to step in immediately as the starter either at center or
guard.The team also agreed to a three-year deal to keep linebacker Brock Coyle,
who started 10 games last season before undergoing offseason shoulder
surgery.General manager John Lynch said McKinnon and Richburg were both high on
the team’s priority list in free agency and he was glad to be able to lock both
of them up as soon as the new league year started.”We see Weston as one of the
top young interior offensive linemen in the NFL,” Lynch said. ”His athleticism,
intelligence and attitude are a perfect fit for our scheme. Jerick has proven to
be an extremely versatile football player whose speed, elusiveness and
tackle-breaking ability make him a very difficult matchup for defenses. We can’t
wait to get them on the field with their teammates and coaches later this
spring.”McKinnon spent four years in Minnesota, mostly as a backup, after being
drafted in the third round in 2014 out of Georgia Southern. He has rushed for
1,918 yards with an average of 4.0 yards per carry, has 142 catches for 984
yards, and has scored 12 touchdowns.McKinnon had his most productive season last
year, when he ran for a career-high 570 yards while setting personal bests with
51 catches for 421 yards.McKinnon replaces Carlos Hyde, who is leaving as a free
agent for Cleveland. McKinnon has more speed and is a better receiving threat
than Hyde and should fit well into coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense.Richburg spent
the past four seasons with the New York Giants but played only four games last
year because of a concussion. He began his career as a left guard before moving
to center in 2015. He played there the past three seasons and is considered one
of the top pass-blocking players at the position and has the athleticism to
thrive in Shanahan’s zone-running scheme.Coyle had 62 tackles last season in his
first year with the 49ers.”He’s a selfless guy that does everything the right
way,” Shanahan said. ”We’ve always known Brock to be a guy we can count on and
it was great to see him play the way he did when given the opportunity.”The
49ers had previously re-signed starting center Daniel Kilgore to a three-year
contract last month but Kilgore also has experience at guard and could be asked
to move.It’s been a busy offseason already for San Francisco. The Niners signed
Garoppolo to a five-year deal last month before he even hit free agency, signed
cornerback Richard Sherman after he was cut by Seattle, re-signed defensive
lineman Cassius Marsh and offensive lineman Garry Gilliam and gave an extension
to receiver Marquise Goodwin.These moves have addressed many of the team’s most
glaring needs although San Francisco still could be in the market for another
cornerback, a pass rusher, help at linebacker and a big receiving target.After
losing their first nine games last year, the 49ers underwent a remarkable
turnaround. They went 5-0 after Garoppolo took over as starting quarterback and
finished the year with a 6-10 mark and plenty of optimism they hope to carry
over into 2018.—
