Samuel, one of the fastest and most dynamic receivers in the NFL, is putting together a career year for the Panthers with 772 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns in 13 contests. He’s currently the only receiver in the NFL with more than 500 receiving yards (627) and 130 rushing yards (145).

Samuel’s career took a key step last season as the 2017 second-round pick appeared in 16 games for the first time in his career and posted career-high totals in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns.

He has been a star player since his days at Ohio State University. A national champion in 2015, an All-American, and a school legend, Samuel’s standout college career led to his 40th overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft.

His soft-spoken and hard-working demeanor, along with his dynamic playmaking versatility, has earned Samuel an impressive list of endorsements which include Nike, Panini America, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Bank of America, and Harris Teeter.

During his downtime from catching passes or running the ball for the Panthers, Samuel can more than likely be found streaming on Twitch exploring his competitive spirit in the digital world playing NBA2K20 with his subscribers.
