Deebo Samuel has gotten off to a good start in his NFL career, catching 68 passes for 922 yards and four touchdowns in his first 18 games. He’s also added 166 yards and three touchdowns rushing, providing a spark on offense for the 49ers.

However, he’s not yet a household name. In fact, the best defensive player on the planet, Aaron Donald, doesn’t even know who he is – or at least he claims to not know Samuel’s name.

After the Rams’ loss to the 49ers on Sunday night, Donald was asked a question about defending a player like Samuel. He asked “who?” as if he didn’t hear the question, but then when told Samuel’s full name, he replied, “who’s that?”

It didn’t go unnoticed by Samuel, who responded to Donald on Instagram by saying the 49ers are 3-0 against the Rams since he was drafted.

A 49ers fan account shared Donald’s media session where he asked who Samuel was, pairing it with highlights from his 66-yard, one-touchdown performance.
