WR/RB Deebo Samuel Is A Swiss Army Knife For The 49ers and he is all the buzz leading up to the NFL draft with reports that he wants out of San Francisco. Many unrealistic Dolphins fans want Miami to pursue getting Deebo but the reality of that happening seems slim given Miami just broke the bank and gave up quite a few picks (5 total Including this years first and 2nd round picks) to get (The Cheetah) Tyreek Hill on the roster in a blockbuster trade with KC.
I decided to look at our roster and see if we have a similar player that can be our “Deebo Samuel” and the person that brings that type of versatility and is similar in body type is Lynn Bowden Jr. who was traded by the Radiers to Miami last season and sat out the season.

Here was a comment about Bowden when he was traded to Miami
“..the 5-foot-11, 204-pound Bowden was extremely versatile during his time at Kentucky. Last fall, Bowden rushed for 1,468 yards and 13 touchdowns while averaging 7.9 yards per carry. Along with seeing some time at quarterback, Bowden made a significant impact on special teams, returning two punt returns for scores during his sophomore campaign.
Bowden‘s versatility was one of the reasons why the Raiders selected him during Day 2 of this year’s draft. Last month, Las Vegas offensive coordinator Greg Olson alluded to Bowden possibly getting some time at quarterback this fall.”
Lynn Bowden Jr. is just as much a swiss army knife as Deebo Samuel, Bowden is younger and cheaper, Miami’s new HC Mike McDanile is the person credited with helping Deebo develope so I see a posiability that Lynn Bowden Jr. will be used in a similar fasion just like Samuel was used by the 49ers. That is more of a reality than Miami overpaying for another player that would cost a boatload of picks and money to bring to the team.
What do you think am I on to something?
