Summary

After an up-and-down first half of his rookie season, Cam Akers surged late in the year as the clear lead back in December and January. Akers posted two 100-yard games of the span and six straight active games of 15 or more carries to close the Rams' season. Akers had an elite metric profile entering the NFL Draft and slipped to the late second round in a historically strong running back class. While Akers has a sturdy receiving profile exiting Florida State, his lack of passing game usage last season is the biggest potential roadblock to a high-level breakout season. Akers had only 20% of the running back targets and the Rams were No.30 in the NFL with 50 running back receptions. Rushing volume and double-digit touchdowns are well within reach and expectation for Akers with receiving upside being the most glaring question mark. (May 14)
