Alvin Kamara is an American football running back for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at the University of Tennessee, and was drafted by the Saints in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Early years

Kamara was born to a Liberian mother. He attended Norcross High School in Norcross, Georgia. He played high school football for the Blue Devils football team. As a junior in 2011, he rushed for 1,300 yards with 17 touchdowns. Moreover, as a senior in 2012, he rushed for 2,264 yards with 26 touchdowns, and he had 22 receptions for 286 yards and five touchdowns and led his high school to its first state championship. As a result of his successful high school career, Kamara earned Georgia Mr. Football honors from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, named Class 6A Player of the Year, and earned first-team All-State honors from the Georgia Sports Writers Association. In addition to these accolades, Kamara was selected to participate in the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game.

College career

Kamara’s short time at University of Alabama was “a rough experience”. He had knee surgery during the preseason, then redshirted as a true freshman when he was unable to break into a recruitment class that featured three other future NFL running backs in Derrick Henry, T. J. Yeldon, and Kenyan Drake. Due to “behavioral issues”, Saban banned Kamara from practicing with the team and suspended him from their bowl game.

Professional career

Kamara achieved the highest Wonderlic test score of running backs participating in the NFL Combine that year.[10] He participated at Tennessee’s Pro Day, but chose to only run positional routes, the short shuttle, and three-cone drill with 19 other teammates in front of representatives and scouts from every team. Likewise, he attended five private workouts and visits held by the Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, and Philadelphia Eagles. NFL draft experts and analysts projected him as a second round pick, ranked as either the fourth-best running back (by, ESPN, and NFL analyst Mike Mayock) in the draft, fifth-best (Bucky Brooks), or seventh-best (by Sports Illustrated).

Body Measurement

At 5’10” and 215 pounds, Kamara is known for his speed and versatility on the field. When the Saints drafted him back in 2017, many wondered how he would be best utilized in their offense. Well, they have found a way.

Net Worth

Alvin Kamara has a net worth of $4 million. In his rookie season in New Orleans, Kamara totaled up over 1500 yards from scrimmage and 14 total touchdowns. He was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year tying with Kareem Hunt of Kansas City. Moreover, Alvin Kamara’s net worth is lower than many in the NFL mostly due to his age.
