UPDATED: FSU NFL Combine results tracker

Two former Seminoles hope to stand out in Indy.

NFL Combine - Day 3

With the likes of Marvin Wilson, Tamorrion Terry, Cory Durden, and Hamsah Nasirildeen all opting to return to FSU next year, just two ’Noles were extended combine invites.

The two representing Florida State in Indianapolis are Cam Akers and Stanford Samuels III.

Both enter the draft process with a chip on their shoulder as prospects that have somewhat flown under the radar—particularly in the case of Akers, who made the most of awful offensive line play throughout his college career.

Cam Akers

The 20 reps puts the Mississippi-native behind eight other running backs at the combine. In comparison, former Seminole standout Dalvin Cook posted 22 in 2017.

While performing at a high level in on-field drills is crucial for prospects to gain interest from what could be their future team, off-field interviews are arguably more important. Akers has already met with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons heading into the weekend.

But his on the field work isn’t to shabby, either:

Call it the Cam Akers drill:

Earning him high praise from NFL draft experts Rich Eisen and Daniel Jeremiah:

And a comparison to a Pro Bowl running back you might have heard of:


40-yard dash: 1st attempt 4.47 seconds:

2nd attempt 4.53 seconds

Vertical Jump: 35.5 inches

broad jump: 122 inches

20-yard shuttle: 4.42 seconds

Stanford Samuels III

The Defensive Backs won’t hit the field to show off their skills until Sunday from 2-7 PM Eastern, but we will keep you updated as the weekend progresses. Check out some of Samuels’ key measurements below:


40 yard Dash: 4.66 seconds
