Number One: Alvin Kamara

The seemingly only guaranteed lock to make the final 53-man roster of the New Orleans Saints is Alvin Kamara.

Kamara, 25, has been dubbed one of the NFL’s best running backs since he entered the league in the third round back in 2017 due, in large part, to his ability to both run the ball extremely well and also catch it at an elite level.

A lingering injury forced Kamara into having a bit of a down year in 2019, but his down year was still miles above some other notable players’ good years.

Kamara wrapped up the 2019 season with 171 carries, 797 rushing yards, 32 first downs, 4.7 yards per carry, and five rushing touchdowns. Kamara also recorded 81 receptions, 533 receiving yards, 28 first downs, 6.6 yards per reception, and one receiving touchdown.

Kamara has been to the Pro Bowl all three years of his NFL career and 2020 will likely be no different. Consider Kamara to be a lock to make the Saints’ final 53-man roster.
