Asante Samuel Jr is the son of Superbowl-winning Asante Samuel Sr. He is a skilled and talented back but is smaller than you would ideally like and it may be that he ends up playing in the slot. A willing tackler but work is required. Very sticky and hard for receivers to separate from him.
Samuel projects as a starting corner at the NFL level, whether he lines up as an outside or slot corner.
He has very quick feet, enabling him to easily stick with most wide receivers throughout their routes in man coverage. Samuel is able to use that quickness and agility to avoid other players on the field and stay in phase through man-beater concepts which are designed to use rub routes to force separation. Samuel is not really an impact player in the run game and bigger offensive players prove problematic for him.
