WATCH: Deebo Samuel makes spectacular catch in NFL debut
If they aren’t already aware, San Francisco 49ers fans are about to learn that Deebo Samuel is a truly gifted athlete and a joy to watch play football.
Samuel was in action in San Francisco’s preseason game against Dallas and made a highlight catch that South Carolina fans saw over four years in Columbia (2015-18). The video below shows him going airborne to snag an underthrown 45-yard pass from 49ers QB C.J. Beathard.
