Samuel posted 62-882-11 in his senior season at South Carolina. He missed most of his junior season, but had an impressive 59-783-1 (adding 98 yards and six touchdowns on the ground) as a sophomore. Two beat writers have projected that Samuel would start as the 49ers’ “Z” receiver, making him a starter opposite Dante Pettis. George Kittle is likely going to lead this team in targets, but Samuel could be a good value in the later rounds, especially in PPR formats. Kendrick Bourne posted 30 catches for 361 yards (on 45 targets) in eight starts last year. Samuel finished as the seventh-best prospect in Kevin Zatloukal’s WR Success Model.
