WATCH: Deebo Samuel takes end-around down the sideline for 45 yards
South Carolina fans know how fast Deebo Samuel is. Now, he’s showing his speed at the NFL level for the San Francisco 49ers.
Samuel was a second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and on Monday night, he appeared in a preseason game for the 49ers, with great results.
As you can see in the video below, Samuel took an end-around pitch and went 45 yards down the sideline, almost making it to the end zone:

The Niners scored a touchdown on the possession, set up by that Samuel run. He reached a top speed of 21 mph on the run, according to analyst Booger McFarland.
Samuel has shown flashes of brilliance this preseason, so it’s likely he’ll have a significant role for the San Francisco offense this fall.
