Curtis Samuel is a threat in more ways than one
There aren’t many players more dynamic than Curtis Samuel. He has a receiver’s hands, and a running back’s vision and balance, and in his final season at Ohio State, he showed off what he can do for whichever team he winds up with.
Samuel lined up as a both a receiver and a running back in his career, but primarily projects as a receiver in the NFL. At 5’11” and 200 pounds, he lacks height, but is solidly built. He also has unquestionable production, amassing 822 yards receiving and 704 yards rushing, with a total of 15 touchdowns as a Junior. The easy comparison is to Percy Harvin or Randall Cobb, and he brings that type of versatility and play-making ability.
The Cardinals could be looking for a running back, as well as another receiver. Samuel could help in both departments. He might not fill that number two receiver hole, but could help the team in a variety of ways. Every NFL team needs play-makers, and Samuel certainly has that capability. They can also get him with a day two pick, instead of having to use their top pick, which could be attractive as well.
