From watching his UT tape ... Alvin has a nose for the goal line.
He could be special in this offense.

Granted this is based on his highlight reels - but he doesn't look like he has the raw speed that Reggie or Sproles had, but I love his balance, quickness, and vision. He also seems to have good hands. It'll be nice to see Sean's offense with a very good scat back again.
I have to say with our O-line depth, Ingram, the possibility of Peterson being anywhere near his prime capability, and the addition of Kamara I am more excited about our ground game than I have been in years.

And the best thing to open up the passing game is a....ground game. This team could light things up like a 4th of July fireworks display.

Please, please let the D show up for the show.

I want to see him play in a game. Will all learn a lot after a game.

If he comes out and flourishes as expected, I am already curious when you look at our other backs what happens next offseason...

I don't see Payton ever abandoning the RB by committee approach.
