Early Life and High School

Deebo Samuel was born as Tyshun Samuel on January 15, 1996 in Inman, South Carolina.

In his senior year, he led his team to the semifinals of the AAA playoffs. Samuel left Chapman with a record 53 career touchdowns, 94 tackles, and 12 interceptions.

Collegiate Career

Samuel went to college at the University of South Carolina, where he played four seasons of college football with the Gamecocks. After redshirting as a true freshman in 2014, he played in five games in 2015 while dealing with injuries. In the 2016 season, Samuel played in 10 games and led his team with 59 receptions for 783 yards. He played in only three games in 2017 due to a season-ending injury in Week 3 against Kentucky.

In the 2019 NFL draft, Samuel was chosen in the second round by the San Francisco 49ers. He subsequently signed a four-year contract with the team. Samuel had a solid rookie season, playing in 15 games and recording 802 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns, as well as 159 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. The 49ers finished the season atop the NFC West, and proceeded to defeat the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers in the playoffs. In Super Bowl LIV, the team fell to the Kansas City Chiefs. However, Samuel’s 53 rushing yards in the game were the most by a wide receiver in Super Bowl history. The next season, Samuel saw limited playing time due to injuries, and finished with 33 receptions for 391 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown. He came back strong in 2021 with his best season yet, recording career highs of 77 receptions for 1,405 receiving yards and 59 rushing attempts for 365 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.

The 49ers went on to reach the NFC Championship for the second consecutive year, this time falling to the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel and the team had another excellent season in 2023. In Week 13 against the Eagles, Samuel had four catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns, as well as 22 rushing yards and a touchdown, earning him NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.
