2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 36th overall pick in this year's draft, Samuel could start opposite Dante Pettis out of the gate in what should be a productive Kyle Shanahan offense with a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo. At 5-11, 214, Samuel is stout, strong and plenty athletic with a 4.48 40 and 39-inch vertical. He's a strong route runner and dangerous in the open field after the catch, but he never reached 900 receiving yards in four seasons at South Carolina, limited by a mixture of injuries and poor quarterback play. Samuel is also on the old side for a rookie after turning 23 in January, so his physical development has likely maxed out already. He'll have to displace deep threat Marquise Goodwin, who's probably better suited to a situational role, among others, but Samuel's odds are good given his physical tools and draft slot.

Dealing with minor groin injury

June 20, 2019
Head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated that Samuel missed the final two weeks of the offseason program due to a "tweaked groin," Mike Gillespie of ABC Columbia reports.
Samuel missed the conclusion of OTAs and the entirety of minicamp with the injury. The missed practice time is concerning for a rookie, but there doesn't seem to be any concern that Samuel's absence will extend into training camp.
