Ohio State H-back Curtis Samuel can run a little bit.
Saturday at the 2017 NFL Combine, Samuel ran his 40-yard dash and posted a ridiculous time of 4.31 seconds, the second-quickest among combine participants this year, behind only Washington wide receiver John Ross.

While Samuel played H-back during his time with the Buckeyes, he’s been working out with the receivers at the combine. He lifted with the WR group on Friday and ran with the position group Saturday. For now, scouts are projecting him as a receiver in the NFL.
Last season with the Buckeyes, Samuel rushed 97 times for 771 yards and eight touchdowns, in addition to his 74 receptions and 865 receiving yards.
