Overview:

DeMarco Sampson has some of the best hands out of any WR in this years draft. He’s very physical and attacks the ball in the air. If it’s thrown near him, chances are he’ll go up and get it. His speed is questionable though and most don’t seem him cracking a 4.6 40. While he does possess great hands, he will find it difficult to separate against NFL CB’s unless he really works on his route running. That is why he may be limited to just a role player or a #4 WR in the NFL.
