Honestly, I didn't expect to see Kamara exploding on the scene the way he did as a rookie.

I don't think any of us did K. I thought he'd probably do well in this offense and have a few nice splash plays, but never in my wildest dreams did I think he'd be a legitimate superstar.

I thought he would do better than Peterson on day one due to pass catching but no way anyone thought it would be greatness. Really no reason why he could not have a better season either being the starter right out the gate next year. If he is still doing returns it gets into all purpose yards area record.

With The signing of Peterson, I thought it was a wasted pick with a crowded backfield of Daniel Lasco, Travis Cadet, with the majority of carries going to Ingram, then I factored in we probably be relying on the arm of Brees which made it a even more wasted pick. BOY WAS I WRONG! Like I said before, eating my crow and loving it

I remember watching his college highlights over and over after we drafted him, just noticing how easy and fluid he looked running the ball, especially between the tackles.

Never imagined he would score 14+ TD's in his rookie season though!

His college highlights look almost identical to NFL highlights.
