    Strong Points: Four-year starter -- mostly at guard but some experience at right tackle. Very consistent player. Quick off the ball and into block. Generates movement with run blocks. Effective to second level and combo blocks. Good with pulls. Athletic -- adjusts on the move and connects with a moving target. Strong in the upper body. Explosive. Almost always gets good position.

    Weak Points: Not many. Room for a bit more bulk and lower-body strength. Like all the Oklahoma linemen, he starts with his hands low, bringing them up before contact.

    The Way We See It: Samia was a very effective and efficient four-year starter at Oklahoma, where he did everything well. He has good size but might want to get a little bigger and stronger for the NFL level. He has the athleticism to play in space, pull and reach the second level. Samia is explosive on contact, keeping his feet moving and working to get movement and finish. He's an adept, very alert pass blocker. He mirrors very well, but can anchor a bit better. Like all Oklahoma linemen, Samia must improve his hand use. That's a coaching issue and won't disrupt how soon he plays, which should be early on at guard or center. Samia is very solid.
