3. Samuel finds end zone multiple times
As great as it was last season to sign Garoppolo to a hefty long-term deal, the 49ers still needed to provide their quarterback with better weapons on offense, or all that money would be at risk to go to waste.
Last April, San Francisco made an easy decision by using a second-round pick on Deebo Samuel following an impressive career at South Carolina.
Like most rookies, Samuel clearly has a few areas of weakness that will hopefully improve over time, but also the 49ers realize the early experience should pay off in the long run.
Despite only having one touchdown to his name through the team’s first four games, Samuel could end up benefitting from the Rams being without Aqib Talib on Sunday, especially when seeing how the passing defense has struggled over the last two weeks.
When looking at the intensity between these two rivals, there’s a good chance this could turn out to be a high scoring game from Week 6, and Samuel could end up seeing an increased workload that could result in multiple trips to the end zone.
Rams fans may not want to hear this, but given the circumstances, it certainly seems possible for Samuel on Sunday.
