ESPN.com: Alvin Kamara off to fastest start among Saints rookies

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Kamara is built and runs like Chris Johnson-type of back... As our Sproles-back, you can bet our scheduled foes and division rivals are gonna be very aware of him this season......

Re: ESPN.com: Alvin Kamara off to fastest start among Saints rookies

I don't know if you can consider a first round pick a "Value" considering where Lattimore was picked he HAS to be a difference maker right away. Almost the same for Ram. Given their injuries I'm definitely not calling them value picks.
Looks like all our value may be in the 3rd round. Kamara is definitely a difference maker in a position that is deep. Anzalone will contribute and may be a hell of a player by mid season.

It kind of shows you how the NFL has changed. Running backs are now somewhat expendable. QBs, DBs and OL get more draft day attention. The AK's of the world ofter go under the radar. I think what many missed is that Kamara may be the most prolific receiver - running combo back in quite some time.

Re: ESPN.com: Alvin Kamara off to fastest start among Saints rookies

The most important guy in this draft is The guy that keeps Drew Brees from getting blindsided, Ramczyk. If he stays up, and he keeps up, we succeed.
Without him I don't know.

That's said, Look at that little Meggett Run !
(that's a clean Chris Berman reference, for those of you searching for a reason to get sensitive ). Alvin Kamara is pure excitement-- reggie and Pierre combined! I'm looking forward to the screen again!

Yeah we definitely need Ram to be successful, but I suspect he will have his growing pains as well. Clearly Barnes is not the answer...Bryce is even worse. Ram played pretty well last game. He got beat once or twice, but he was going against some talented DE's. Will have some growing pains, but yes we need him to be successful. I wonder if Unger will play tonight

Kamara got the night off, so I guess he's good to go for the regular season?

By all accounts he's so far ahead of the curve that Payton just wanted Ingram and Peterson to get the reps.
