All-purpose yards

There is nothing that Curtis Samuel cannot do with the football in his hands. He is an electrifying player who came of age in 2019 despite some less than impressive play from his quarterbacks with the Carolina Panthers.

Things should get even better for Samuel with a more consistent signal-caller under center in Teddy Bridgewater. This could see the wideout achieve heights not seen before in his three-year career and it could come with a substantial payday either in Carolina or elsewhere.

Offensive coordinator Joe Brady has an embarrassment of riches at the wide receiver position. The likes of D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson will command significant targets. Samuel might not be the focal point of the offense. But he should still make his presence felt.

The receiver is a dual-threat weapon who can line up on the outside, in the slot, or as a running back. Samuel recorded a career-high in all-purpose yards in 2019 with 757. This included 627 receiving and 130 rushing, and this total is something he could easily eclipse next time around.

Samuel has a rare ability to take it to the house on any given down. Brady is going to put him in the best possible position to succeed. But what comes next will be up to the player with a significant amount on the line.
