New Orleans Saints: 3 potential Alvin Kamara replacements
No. 2 Kenyan Drake
It’s trading one 41 for another.
Yes, this new one won’t necessarily be as talented, and at 26 years old, he certainly won’t be as fresh. But when it comes to elusiveness, no other back in the league comes as close to Kamara as Kenyan Drake.
After being shipped to Arizona from Miami mid-season, Drake’s production went into overdrive, proving he has plenty left in the tank.
Have a look at his 58 forced missed tackles in 253 carries and his average 3.5 yards after contact, and you’ll see that Kenyan Drake is the closest thing to an Alvin Kamara clone that Saint’s fans can get.
Drake has proven he still has a lot to offer, and Mickey Loomis could more than likely get him at a decent price. Drake would be able to step into the Kamara-sized hole and fill it with similar results, in a way that few backs in the league could.
