For months leading up to the 2017 draft, it seemed like a no-brainer the New Orleans Saints would draft a running back.
Two days before the draft, though, the Saints signed Adrian Peterson, making it less clear how much the team would target a back during the three-day selection process.
Then, the third round arrived that Friday night, and the Saints made a trade to pick Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara, and the rest, of course, is history.
With Kamara and Mark Ingram leading the backfield, it’s unclear how much the Saints will need to add another running back, but for an offense that frequently mixes personnel, there’s always a chance New Orleans will look for another weapon.
With about two weeks remaining before the draft, we’ll analyze the Saints’ needs at each position. The 10-part series continues with running backs.

Re: New Orleans Saints pre-draft depth chart: Running back

Extend Mark Ingram and keep looking for diamonds in the rough later in the draft. We don't need to use very much of our draft capital on a running back right now.
