Future Watch: Deebo Samuel Rookie Football Cards, 49ers – Deebo Samuel was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 36th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. As a 5-11, 214-pound wide receiver, he has a usual skill set and that could translate very well from collegiate play to the pros.
The former high school star attended the University of South Carolina. In 2015, he played in just five games. He had some injuries to deal with and finished the season with 12 receptions for 161 yards and one touchdown.
The next season he led the team in receptions with 59. He played in 10 games and gained 783 yards and one touchdown. He rushed for six more touchdowns on just 15 carries.
In 2017, he started off the season hot with five catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns. He would only play three games that season, and he had four touchdowns in total because of a broken fibula.
In 2018, he played in 12 games. He had 62 receptions for 882 yards and 11 touchdowns. He would play in the Senior Bowl and then get ready for the NFL Combine.
At the combine, he had a 39” vertical and ran a 4.48, 40-yard dash. He was set and it was just a matter of where he would go in the draft.
Here are some of his highlights:
