Cam Erving came to FSU football as a three-star defensive tackle recruit in the 2010 recruiting class. He was the No. 809 overall player in the 2010 class.
Erving played sparingly as a red-shirt freshman in 2011 before being added to the Jimbo Fisher/Rick Trickett special’s list.
That’s what we call a player when he comes in at one position and the coaching staff move him to another position to flourish. Erving made the move to the offensive line his sophomore season and started every game at left tackle.
However, it was his junior and senior seasons that saw Erving become a special player at FSU. He won the coveted Jacob’s Blocking Trophy in 2013 and 2014, an award given to the blocker in the ACC.
Erving made another position change his senior season, moving to center for the last five games which aided FSU in their 29 game win streak.
He became a first round draft pick (No. 19 overall) of the Cleveland Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft.
