(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.
