Samuel is an elite athlete with explosive traits.

Ross’ 40 at the Combine will be etched in history regardless of how his NFL career plays out, but he should have a long one. His complete-receiver value goes beyond his straight-line speed. His ease of movement is apparent on film, as he’s able to play controlled and adjust at the catch point.

Ross is not just a perimeter or downfield, route-running speed threat; he’s a legitimate short-area and mid-field receiver who can work after the catch with patience and lateral quickness. Ross has showcased a multitude of downfield routes, and some of his best plays in college came off double moves, downfield posts, digs and deep comebacks. His big-play ability, including his return upside immediately as a rookie, makes him a top-20 prospect in the mold of Odell Beckham Jr.

Samuel is an elite athlete with explosive traits. When/if he takes hand-offs, he lacks the bulk or power to mash it up between the tackles, but he can run the outside zone and shows enough toughness to absorb big hits from linebackers. As a receiver in college, he was not asked to run a great variety of routes. But with his burst, quickness and body control, Samuel carries the traits to execute NFL patterns with development.

Samuel can really stick his foot into the ground and explode out of breaks. Slants, angle routes and option routes are his specialty at this stage. Overall, Samuel has game-breaking speed, but he’s raw. He can have an instant impact as an explosive return man, but his success might be dependent on the creativity of his coordinator. He’s the epitome of an offensive weapon with no true every-down position.

Josh Norman gets frustrated and headbutts Odell Beckham Jr. in Giants vs. Washington

Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman have a history that dates back to Week 15 of last season, when the two were basically fighting on the field.

Many words were exchanged since then, and it appeared we had a fresh and ferocious rivalry between two of the leagues best at their respective positions.

In the third quarter of the Giants game against Washington, Norman headbutted Beckham after a play, and was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The two were pretty peaceful in their first matchup, but clearly this one hasn’t gone exactly the same way. The Giants are currently leading Washington 10-0, with Beckham having five catches for 44 yards.

Led by linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali, Kansas City has one of the best front sevens in the NFL. This unit can rush the passer and defend the run by clogging up rushing lanes.

Like their front seven, the Chiefs defensive backfield is one of the best in the league, as well. Cornerback Marcus Peters and safety Eric Berry have been stellar this season. They are both one of the best players at their respective positions.

Offensively, quarterback Alex Smith did what he does best. He made plays with his arm and legs, avoided turnovers, and kept drives alive. He finished the regular season with (passing yards, touchdowns, and interceptions).

Tight end Travis Kelce and receiver Tyreek Hill were exceptional this year, as well. Kelce is a tight end who can help block in the run game, and he has the speed and size to have an effect on the game as a receiver.
