FSU football career rushing leader No. 6: Cam Akers
- 2,875 rushing yards
- 27 rushing touchdowns
- 4.9 yards per rush
Cam Akers has a Super Bowl ring, but before he was one of Matthew Stafford’s main weapons on the Los Angeles Rams, he was a Third-team All-ACC RB in 2017 and a Second-team All-ACC rusher in 2019 for the Seminoles.
Akers has become a check-down destroyer for the Rams, and it’s likely that will be the case for as long as his body holds. With an Achilles tear in 2021, it’s hard to tell how long the 24-year-old will be able to stand the punishment the position requires. A move to a more full-time slot receiver can preserve his body for the long haul.
