Tennessee football running back Alvin Kamara is a playmaker in the 2017 NFL Draft. Here are the five best places for the former Volunteers player to go to.
If you listen to numerous NFL Draft experts, about the only thing holding back Alvin Kamara is the fact that his lack of playing time early in the season is drawing concern among the scouts.
However, he’s still projected to go in the first two rounds of the draft. His size, shiftiness, and overall speed are huge assets for the league.
And down the stretch, after Jalen Hurd’s departure, Kamara proved he could be an every down back as well.
Still, the best situation for Kamara is to go to a team where he can be a big-play guy. That’s obviously how the Vols used him before Hurd left the program, and that’s how the league should use him as well.
As we take a look at the best landing spots for Kamara in the NFL Draft, we take numerous things into account. For starters, teams that don’t need a running back or dysfunctional franchises are never on the list.
Kamara is a playmaker but needs support. That’s why his best bet is to go to teams that already have a good bit of talent but just need one explosive playmaker.
Of course, there are teams that need running backs in this draft but who never maximize their talent. Individually that wouldn’t be good for Kamara, and it’s why we eliminated the New England Patriots.
Teams like the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings could use Kamara as well, but he wouldn’t get as many chances to shine at those two places. They both have a solid group of backs already.
Here, we’re looking at places where he could play immediately and still have a lot of help. These are the five best landing spots for Alvin Kamara in the 2017 NFL Draft.
