The closer we get to the NFL Draft next Thursday, the more rumors you can expect surrounding Deebo Samuel. The latest comes from the man himself while he was in a nightclub.
There was a sign being carried around a Los Angeles area club that read, “Deebo is staying 49ers.”
The camera quickly panned over to the 49ers WR, who could be seen laughing and then giving the throat slash gesture that meant what was being said on that sign was not happening.
There isn’t a player the Niners will draft that’ll replicate what Deebo did in 2021. I’m not sure Samuel himself will put up a similar season to the one we just saw again. He was the 49ers’ offense.
The 49ers, who are coming off an NFC Championship Game appearance and who have designs on making another deep postseason run, obviously want to give presumptive QB Trey Lance as many weapons as possible.
At this point, it does not appear they can do much to sway him into staying with the team.
