NFL Market Share Production

akeem-ayers

Metric Recommendation: Akeem Ayers has all the qualities NFL types look for in linebackers. But lacks the production from college to show elite level instincts necessary for consistently elite or near elite potential. If you view him as an average NFL starter. Ayers will give you the competency, but not the pop you may want in a free agent linebacker. I’d buy as a quality backup to spot starter, but the goal shouldn’t be Ayers as your linebacker long-term.
