BIO: Played in seven games as a senior posting 92/340/7 on the ground after 130/687/11 as a junior. Career-best rushing numbers came as a freshman when he totaled 795 yards.
POSITIVES: Big, strong back who must take his game to another level. Patient, sees the field and finds the cutback lanes. Weaves through the traffic on the inside, displays good first-step quickness and has the agility to get around tackle. Strong and easily picks up yardage off initial contact. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Hesitant and lacks top run instincts. Does too much dancing rather than taking the ball up the field. Must significantly improve his intensity and effort blocking.
ANALYSIS: A gifted athlete with natural skills, Sampson is an underachieving football player who needs to be pushed. Highly considered by NFL scouts, he will be given another chance this summer but must immediately produce.
