Deebo Samuel was an electric playmaker in his time at South Carolina. As a sophomore, he had 783 yards receiving and generated a world of buzz heading into his junior season. After having a season-ending injury after three games, he came back this past season and showed precisely why people thought he was one of the best wide-outs in the nation.
Putting together an 882-yard season with 62 receptions and 11 touchdowns, and became a household name in Mobile at the Senior Bowl, routinely burning poor cornerbacks across from him. Samuel can step in and help replace the void Humphries could leave in both the slot and on the outside, showing the ability to separate deep down the field. He also returned one kick for six to start the game against SEC rival Ole Miss, taking a botched pouch kick to the house; for his career, he returned four all the way into the end zone.
Samuel finished his South Carolina career inside the school’s top 10 in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns; he also led the school in return touchdowns. The Bucs would have to take Samuel in the second round most likely, but again, if more draft capital can be obtained via a trade back, the Bucs will have the ammunition to snag Samuel.
