Alvin Kamara showcases burst in preseason debut

(WVUE) -

It did not take long for Saints fans to see the shifty, change-of-pace style they hoped for when Alvin Kamara was drafted in the third round of the 2017 draft.

The University of Tennessee product took a handoff on the Saints' second play from scrimmage and sprung free for a 12-yard gain. On the team's second drive, he looked to be engulfed at the line of scrimmage until he shook a tackler free and rumbled for 22 yards "I went through my read, it got clogged up and it just happened to bounce outside so I just rolled with it and I was able to pick up some big yards."

In limited action, Kamara finished with 4 carries for 35 yards. He also returned one punt for 11 yards.

    The AP preseason poll came out today, and of course Alabama is No. 1. I'm going to breakdown a few teams in my Top 25. This is the 9th year I'm doing an AP poll. Fist off, no shock, I have the Tide in the top spot. Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, doesn't matter who's at QB. Week one they play Louisville in Orlando. Right now they're only 24-point favorites. Georgia holds No. 2 in my poll. Another year of Jake Fromme under center is a great reason to have the Dawgs here. South Carolina ...more>>
