The 2020 draft class is going to shake up the NFL landscape and how we view and value dynasty assets going forward. We have a draft class that is deep at both running back and wide receiver. Evaluations for these players are going to be all over the place. We are going to see a lot of volatility in rankings and rookie drafts. We can capitalize on that by using the off-season to do our homework.
Cam Akers is one of the stud running back prospects in this year’s class. A lot of people are excited about him. There are also some folks who are concerned about how he will transition to the next level. Either way, he’s a supreme talent and should be solidly on your radar.
AS A RECRUIT
Cam Akers was a five-star prospect from Clinton, Mississippi playing quarterback for Clinton High School. There he passed for 3,128 yards and 31 touchdowns while also rushing for 2,105 yards and 34 touchdowns during his senior season. He earned Gatorade Player of the Year honors for the state of Mississippi in 2016 and was named Mr. Football for Class 6A in the same year. That year he led his high school team to its first-ever state title.
Multiple schools knocked on his door wanting him to sign a letter of intent to play for their program. Before signing with Florida State, he saw offers from 22 different schools. Some of the schools that were interested in his services were Ohio State, Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame.
