McVay's quote was "He was the top high school recruit as a quarterback coming out. So, his stats are, when you look at them, it’s almost like a ‘Madden’ stat line when you see the stuff he was doing in high school. We knew about it. I know our personnel staff did a great job of vetting him and going real deep in terms of the background with (scout) Michael Pierce and all of those guys. Then when you really start to study him, it shows up, and then they use him. I mean, there are some trick plays where he’s catching a swing pass to his left and flipping his hips and making 50-yard throws down the field. He did some impressive stuff. You never know, we might have a wildcat package coming to a theater near you.”
It's another intriguing angle for the upside running back but McVay has also proven unpredictable when trying to forecast fantasy role so we'll have to wait until we see it. Akers will likely start the year as part of a three-headed backfield but has the most long term upside. Cam Akers is currently listed as DLF's RB15.
