NGT: Kamara, New Orleans via Tennessee

mattlawson : 8/20/2017 8:47 pm
3rd round pick. Looks tremendous tonight. like he's shot out of a canon. catches well, RAC, physical. Doesn't look at all like a rookie.

Anyone here have him on their radar?
Yea this was not a good week for me

Hunt
Kupp
Kamara all killed it

Was hoping they had mediocre weeks now there gonna shoot yo all boards
Gallman pick is less an less impressive by the week

Alot of good looking rookie RBs, Gallman is just not one of them IMO but this o-line has to be a bottom 5 unit to be fair.
Watched Kamara a lot as a Vol fan.

He should do very well in that offense. He has low miles on him since he was behind Hurd for half the year.
Kamara was the 67th pick.

The relevant comparison is Tomlinson, not Gallman. At #140, the alternatives to Gallman were guys like Marlon Mack and Brian Hill, not Alvin Kamara.
Kamara will not see much action this season

He is 3rd on the chart behind two established rbs. They just signed AP and they have Ingram..

Unless one of these happens
They trade Ingram
One gets injured
One of the players decides to retire


Look for Kamara in specific roles or situations this year and to be a breakout next year. But keep him on your radar. Incase something happens.

BTW I'd give a 5th maybe a 4th for Ingram today.
What???

Why not just compare Gallman to Fournette next?

Gallman is a 5th round pick. The guys you mentioned went much higher -It's like saying the Webb pick sucks because Kizer looks good.
Interesting take on Kamara

isnt going to play this year. AP is an aged veteran who may or may not be able to complete a season.

Payton seems to love Kamara and as a Tenn fan I could see why. He got stuck behind Jalen Hurd who had been there prior to his arrival and by the time week 4-5 went along, Kamara should have been the premiere back (but for Butch Jones desire not to use him).

I think Kamara is going to be a star - I also like Tennessee so might be the homer syndrom kicking in.

Hunt is already going in the 7-9 range, not sure he was hiding from anyone.

I like Marlon Mack - I think he's going to be the lead back in IND before long. Gore is like 80 years old now and Turbin is nothing special. Mack made some nice plays against DAL the other night.

I have yet to see him but he is breaking off some big
plays both the run and pass breaking tackles as well I
remember some nay sayers about him but its still early
we shall see he was one guy I wanted us to take .
