Pos: 
Nice-sized blocker who comes off a disappointing campaign. Explosive at the point, works to bend his knees and quickly gets his hands into defenders. Keeps his head on a swivel, stays with assignments and works well with linemates. Displays terrific awareness and strength and easily turns defenders from the action. Fires out to the second level, squares into linebackers and seals them from the action.
Neg: 
Lacks footwork in space and cannot slide in pass protection. Struggles to adjust, lacks agility and does not always finish blocks. Must improve his balance.
Analysis: 
I expected big things from Samia off the 2017 film and graded him as a mid-round pick, but his game leveled off and even regressed last season. He's an average athlete, but he previously showed starting potential and plays intense football. Samia could be an inexpensive utility guard at the next level if he gets his game back on track, but otherwise he'll bounce around the league.
