New England Patriots
|Strength: Asante Samuel is an athletic and intelligent cornerback. Asante Samuel gets his hands on the ball a lot in pass coverage.|
|Weakness: Asante Samuel doesn't have ideal cornerback speed. Asante Samuel does not tackle bigger players very well.|
|Development: Asante Samuel shows the skills of a solid man-to-man cornerback, but may not have the speed for the position in the NFL. If Asante Samuel cannot find a way to compensate for his speed deficiency on defense, he is more than adequate as a special teams player and looks good with the ball in his hands. Asante Samuel will at best be a nickel corner on the defense this year. In a scheme such as cover 2, it is possible Asante Samuel can be a pretty good cornerback down the road.|
|Fantasy Football Rating: Solid return man and as a corner he made a lot of plays on the ball in college.|
|Prospect Type: Productive. Ready-to-go.|
