RB3: Abram Smith
The shock on this list is that the third running back spot could end up going to UDFA Abram Smith. The Baylor product went undrafted after an outstanding season that saw him rush for 1,601 yards and 13 touchdowns and New Orleans didn’t hesitate to snatch him up.
Saints fans are all going nuts over Smith and what he could provide for this offense. He’s not going to be anything more than a third-stringer once Kamara returns from his suspension but while Kamara is out, Smith can take a few carries to give Ingram some rest and we can see what he has in the tank then.
While Smith is easily the most popular UDFA amongst Saints fans at the moment, he’ll still have to step up and earn his spot on the roster. There are two other running backs also competing for the RB3 spot so Smith will have to outperform them.
Let’s discuss those players next.
