"I guess he's similar to a quarterback who can throw it extremely hard," Richt said. "They've got to understand sometimes how to use the touch. He's a back who has to learn at times to gear it down a little bit until he really sees it, and then hit it."
Richt said he remains confident that Samuel can develop into a star running back, and he isn't asking him to change his style – just his approach.
"I think he's getting a better feel of the vision of the running schemes and where it should go, but it's hard to slow him down," Richt said. "He really runs hard, and there's a lot of value to that if you start knocking people back and breaking tackles. It's just a different style of running."
