Cam Akers was a QB in high school. His transition to running back has gone very well but he does run like a scrambling quarterback from time to time. Akers has great burst up the middle and has the speed to break away some big runs. He is a very good pass catcher and explosive in the open field. He has potential to be a 3 down back but needs to work on his blitz pick up and pass protection. He is currently being viewed as a 4th round pick with upside.
