Everyone knew Deebo Samuel was very good when he was at South Carolina. Ultimately that led to Samuel being drafted in the 2nd round by the San Francisco 49ers. But Samuel has played much better than that in his rookie season.
This guy has set the bar high and he’s been a very reliable target for Jimmy Garoppolo. Once Samuel gets even more experience then there’s no telling how good he can be. Kyle Shanahan certainly believes in his abilities because we’re seeing Samuel take over the number one receiver spot in this offense. He’s just so good at winning those one-on-one battles out wide. Even when defensive backs are right on Samuel’s hip he still usually comes down with the football. And if San Francisco plans on upsetting the Chiefs then they’ll need their young playmaker to have one of the best games of his career. If Kansas City has a weakness it’s definitely their defense. So Garoppolo, Mostert, and Samuel have to find a way to win that match-up. That’s so crucial in the Super Bowl and soon we’ll get to see if they can shock the world? It’ll take a total team effort from the 49ers.
