You probably could look into a different Pokemon instead of Samurott, yes. While it is a solid Pokemon, it's simply just not anything outstanding or unique. Plus, Swimming Goggles don't exist. There are plenty of Water-types available, but my preference is a bulky Jellicent with enough speed to outrun most stall-relevant Pokemon and Taunt them before they can recover/status it. There are other options too but this is my favorite. :3

Jellicent @ Leftovers
ability: Water Absorb / Cursed Body
nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP / 84 Spe / 176 Def
- Scald / Surf
- Will-o-Wisp
- Taunt
- Recover

Kay so Samurott really shouldn't be in a OU competetive team just because it is completely outclassed by Cloyster.
name: Shell Smash
move 1: Shell Smash
move 2: Icicle Spear
move 3: Rock Blast
move 4: Razor Shell / Hydro Pump
item: Life Orb / White Herb
ability: Skill Link
nature: Jolly / Naive
evs: 48 HP / 252 Atk / 208 Spe
Shell Smash is an amazing move to sweep with and it would really improve your team.
On ferrothorn replace protect with Leech seed sinc eprotect won't do you any good.

I also notice your team is Thundurus Weak:
Nasty Plot Variants will destory 4/6 of your team so you should watch out! I really do not know how to fix this issue though.

you have volcarana with no taunt/rapid spin...
also volcarana doesn't need will-o-wisp, you want to be killing everything with it being a sweeper
ferrothorn seems a bit..pointless too, this being a more offensive team. Spikes should really be replaced with stealth rock, better on offensive teams for quicker set-up with often more damage
