The Rams selected Florida State RB Cam Akers in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Akers was tough to evaluate this past season because Florida State’s offensive line was so damn bad. Akers averaged a mediocre 5.0 yards per carry on his 231 attempts but ranked top 12 among draft-eligible RBs in both yards after contact and missed tackles forced, per Pro Football Focus. His 125.9 Elusive Rating was near the top of the class — notably ahead of guys like Jonathan Taylor, D’Andre Swift, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and J.K. Dobbins. Akers arrived at Florida State as a 5-star recruit after playing QB in high school. His 1,025 rushing yards in 2017 broke Dalvin Cook’s freshman school record. Akers also contributed in the passing game all 3 years in Tallahassee, posting 16-116-1, 23-145-2 and 30-225-4 receiving lines. He showed out at the Combine, running a 4.47-second 40-yard dash at 217 pounds and posting strong marks in the vertical and broad jumps. Akers joins Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown in the Rams’ Gurley-less backfield. This will likely be a committee, but consider Akers the early favorite to lead the group in touches.
