49ers’ Deebo Samuel reveals why he doesn’t study other receivers

Jan 28, 2022 at 3:02 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers' wide receiver and sometimes running back, Deebo Samuel, spoke with reporters after Friday's practice before traveling to Southern California for Sunday's NFC Championship Game matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel has noted in the past that he doesn't spend a whole lot of time studying other NFL wideouts. On Friday, he was asked why that is.

"There's not another receiver in this league that plays like me and do the things that I do," Samuel answered. "So I don't see the need to watch anybody that don't do the things that I do."

Samuel isn't exaggerating. It would be difficult to find another NFL receiver who is as versatile of an offensive weapon as Samuel. The third-year player had 77 receptions, 59 rushing attempts, and even threw a touchdown pass this season.

Samuel led the team with 1,405 receiving yards while adding 365 rushing yards and 14 total touchdowns (six receiving, eight rushing) through 16 games. His eight rushing touchdowns led the team. In addition, he has six catches for 82 yards and a rushing touchdown through the team's two playoff games.

The 49ers hope Samuel's dynamic play is enough to help beat the Rams on Sunday, sending San Francisco to its second Super Bowl in three years.

49ers rookie RB Tyrion Davis-Price reveals ideal playing weight, seeks to deliver punches to the mouth

Rookie running back Tyrion Davis-Price weighed in at 211 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine, running the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds. He was about 225 pounds during his time at LSU. That's about where the San Francisco 49ers want Davis-Price to be in his first NFL season. "I'll be between 220, 222 this season," Davis-Price told reporters on Friday. "... That's what I'm best playing at, around that weight, 220, 222." According to the team's official weight listings, that's bigger than any of his new running back teammates. Trey Sermon comes close at about 215 pounds. That ideal weight hints at how the 49ers envision using the third-round draft pick—as a power runner more than a finesse weapon. Remember, Elijah Mitchell dealt with several injuries while

Last year, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle became the first-ever recipient of the Dwight Clark Legacy Award.

The Hall of Fame quarterback revealed the news on Wednesday morning during KNBR's Murph & Mac show.

Deebo Samuel is once again following the #49ers on Instagram.

Late Wednesday night, San Francisco 49ers fans sighed in relief as wide receiver Deebo Samuel reportedly followed the team on Instagram once again, which could be a sign that the relationship is getting back on track. Samuel, who scrubbed his account of everything 49ers related on April 7th, which was around the time of his reported trade request, was not moved during the draft as the 49ers stayed firm with their decision despite fielding multiple offers for the star receiver. Now, almost a month later, Samuel has re-followed the team, once again utilizing his power of social media to express his
