During his time at Ohio State, Samuel was the ultimate playmaker for Urban Meyer. The Brooklyn native began his career as a true freshman running back behind Ezekiel Elliott, where he averaged 6.6 yards per carry on Ohio States national championship squad.
As a sophomore, he was moved to a hybrid RB/WR role on a loaded roster, where he was unable to steal carries from the workhorse that was Elliott, or see much time with the barrage of future NFL talent that was on the perimeter.
With Braxton Miller out of the picture, Samuel was able to settle in at H-back, aka the Percy Harvin positionin Meyers offense. In that ultimate playmaking role, Samuel racked up 771 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground, while compiling 865 yards and seven touchdowns on a team-leading 74 receptions. As one can see, the kid from Brooklyn was the ultimate Swiss-Army Knife for the Buckeyes.
Some analysts have been mocking a cornerback to the Falcons at No. 31, but thats not actually a need for Atlanta. The Falcons are likely to target an edge rusher early, and safety and guard are also priorities. Kiper gives the Falcons defensive end Taco Charlton at No. 31, and hell fit in nicely with Atlantas defense. Obi Melifonwu would be a great addition to the Falcons defensive backfield, and guard Dorian Johnson in the third makes sense for Atlanta.
