It’s no secret that Deebo Samuel is a special athlete. At South Carolina, Samuel was an electric playmaker on offense and special teams. A video making the rounds on social media may have Gamecocks hoops coach Frank Martin wondering what might have been.
Niners Nation media manager Alex Tran shared a video of Samuel posterizing some poor soul on the hardwood. Samuel’s grade as an NFL Draft prospect was hurt by his listed height of 5-11, but as this video shows, he can play higher than that. The San Francisco 49ers selected Samuel in the second round with the No. 36 overall pick.
