2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JORDAN AKINS: Central Florida, 6030 249 4.80. Junior entry and two-year starter from Atlanta, GA. A nightmare match-up in the passing game. A former wide receiver who runs like a wide receiver at the tight end position. Akins was a third round draft choice by the Texas Rangers in 2010. Played in their farm system for four years which makes him older than the average draft choice at 26-years of age come draft day. First-team All-ACC choice last season. A good route runner who flashes burst in and out of his cuts. Appears to have the speed to get behind linebackers and split deep Cover 2 coverage. A developmental player from blocking to route running. A raw but athletic talent. Missed the 2015 season with a knee injury suffered on the opening kickoff of the first game. He was listed as a wide receiver, kickoff and punt returner. Played in the 2018 Senior Bowl as a graduated junior. 2017 stats: 32-515, 16.1 ypr, 4 TD. Medical exclusion at Combine, left knee. Sixth/seventh round. (A-33 1/2, H-9 1/2, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
