Draft A Buckeye: Curtis Samuel

 

Curtis Samuel was the Swiss army knife that the Buckeyes leaned heavily on during the previous season and he is a playmaker that could make some noise at the NFL level.  Samuel has the right blend of size and speed, with the ability to break tackles and leave defenders in a cloud of dust.  At the NFL Combine Samuel was clocked at 4.31 in the 40-yard dash, a 4.33 in the 20-yard shuttle and a 7.09 in the 3 cone drill.  He has the ability to change directions with ease as he patiently waits for an opening.  He put up 18 reps on the bench press, 37 inches in the verticle jump and 119 inches in the broad jump.  He will look to make teams happy with his skill set and he is currently projected to go in the 2nd round, but could be in demand due to his ability to do it all.  At 5’11” and 196 lbs., Samuel is viewed as a Jack of all trades that has not mastered a particular skill.
