Deebo Samuel's third season in the NFL has been a coming-out party for him. After making some noise as a rookie and sophomore, the San Francisco 49ers star has proven he belongs amongst the top players in the league. His prowess both on the ground and in the air has his team one win away from a Super Bowl appearance.

When asked to describe his performance, 49ers star edge rusher Nick Bosa had one word to describe Deebo Samuel: a “savage”. Here's his full quote about his teammate. (via Eric Branch)

“Deebo is just a savage football payer. There's nothing more to it, he's a beast.”

Deebo Samuel's emergence as a legitimate two-way threat has given the 49ers offense new life. Under Kyle Shanahan's scheme, Samuel has thrived as both a running option and a route runner. Him switching seamlessly from WR1 to running back and vice versa has many fans and him creating a new made-up position for him: “wide back”.

The All-Pro wide receiver now has a chance to make it to the Super Bowl again. Standing in front him and the 49ers is an old foe: the Los Angeles Rams. Despite winning six straight games against them in the regular season dating back to Samuel's rookie year, San Francisco is still considered as heavy underdogs.

They will certainly need Samuel to channel his inner “beast mode” on Sunday night again. The Rams' defense has looked mighty good in the playoffs (save for a near-collapse against the Buccaneers late in the game). If the 49ers have any shot of getting a chance at a Super Bowl ring, they'll need Deebo to continue his dominance over Aaron Donald and the Rams.
