49ers' Deebo Samuel: Shows off wheels

Samuel did not receive a target but did gain 45 yards on his lone rushing attempt in Monday night's 24-15 preseason win over the Broncos.

Samuel showed off his electric athleticism in taking an end-around and beating defenders to the boundary for a big gain before being pushed out at the one-yard line. Such plays are precisely why the 49ers invested the 36th overall pick in this year's draft in him, and after a three-touch, 75-yard preseason debut, the team is already seeing significant dividends. Of course, Samuel will need to prove himself once the regular season begins, but his performance and usage so far suggest that Kyle Shanahan plans to find ways to get the ball in his hands.
