Hes incredible in space. I think ive said this before, but i worry just a little bit about his use in our offense... but Marty did do a good job with a somewhat similar player in Westbrook. Not really all that similar but some similar traits. Samuel much less a back of course with a load more potential in the slot as a true wr that can run routes.
I think he'll make plays within a base offense, but i think to maximize him - hes a guy you have to have a plan for and scheme him some opportunities in space, or set up some mismatches for him to exploit. I dont think thats impossible, but i dont have as much faith in us doing so as effectively as i would, say the Pats, Saints, Eagles, GB, Mia, etc..
Not to mention the little bit of a question id have with Joe hitting such a small, quick target consistently enough not to waste his targets. While you can hand him the ball, youre not gonna do that more than maybe 3-4 times a game. A bulk is going to be designed dump offs, screens, wheels, slants, etc..
But i dont think anyone is sleeping on him. Pretty sure most recognize the match up nightmare he could become and the diverse skill set he brings. I think its just a matter of fit and finding the team thats willing to commit building him into their offense, and not trying to squeeze him into a role that already exists in their offense.
