Samuel was very productive, where he had 172 carries, for 1286 rushing yards, along with 15 rushing touchdowns, plus 107 receptions, for 1249 receiving yards, and 9 receiving touchdowns. He has great speed, he has great vision, he is a good pass catcher, and he is very versatile, as he can lineup at running back, and at wide receiver, making him a dual threat. He is also tough to take down, he breaks tackles with ease, he is very experienced, and he is a dynamic playmaker on offense. On the other hand he is on the small side, and I am not sure where he best fits in the NFL, as a running back, or a wide receiver, but his skill set should get him drafted fairly high, likely on day 2, where he would likely be a key special teams player, and a solid dual threat offensive play maker.
