The Saints already had a 1,000-yard back, and then they went and signed a former MVP and future Hall-of-Famer.
So naturally, they drafted another running back.
The Saints traded up to the 67th overall pick in the third round to take Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara.
He didn’t get regular work in college, but he was a big-play threat, averaging 6.5 yards per carry last year. He’s also a solid pass-catcher, and gives them a different element than either Mark Ingram or Adrian Peterson.
The Saints like using multiple backs, and they’ve now reloaded significantly.
