Ex-Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara already turning heads with New Orleans Saints

JON COOPER | 3 HOURS AGO



New Orleans may already have RBs Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram on the roster, but there’s a new guy in town who’s creating some buzz.

Former Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara is turning the heads of Saints’ players already. Kamara, who was receiving first-round buzz heading into the NFL Draft, was picked by the Saints in the third round (no. 67 overall) this past April, and his athleticism, upside and potential have to be really intriguing to New Orleans.

Yes, Kamara had a nice final season with Tennessee, but perhaps while it might have been frustrating playing behind Jalen Hurd for a season and a half, Kamara has low miles on his wheels and enters the NFL fresh and ready to make some sort of impact.

QBs are known to be cerebral, and while everyone in the NFL possesses the athleticism and ability to play in the league, not everyone picks up the game quickly. That seems to be what Drew Brees likes about Kamara.


Former Heisman Trophy winning RB Mark Ingram didn’t play with Kamara at Alabama — Kamara was at Alabama in 2013, but he can certainly tell the former Volunteer RB has a bright future. All NFL RBs not named Trent Richardson can hit the hole, but being an asset in the passing game is just another weapon in the arsenal and another great asset of becoming a complete NFL RB.

No doubt Kamara has that trait.

Really excited about this pick, Brees said the "only have to tell him once" thing about Michael Thomas and look how that turned out!

Re: Ex-Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara already turning heads with New Orleans Saints

Anyone watched the TN/Texas A&M game last season? Alvin took a pounding but he never quit. He has amazing lower body strength. Above average vision & has a burst. Legs always driving for an extra yard.

In Sean Payton's offense, he could be special.

Side note - his running style reminds me of Ricky Watters from back in the day.

I had Watters on several fantasy teams back in the late '90's. He was a stud. And, yes, I have been doing fantasy football for decades now.
