Overview:

Kamara was very productive for only playing in 24 career games at Tennessee, where he had 210 rushes, for 1294 rushing yards, and 16 rushing touchdowns. He has great speed, is a good blocking back, is an explosive playmaker on offense, a good pass catching back, along with both making defenders miss with ease, and breaking tackles with ease. He also has an explosive burst off the line of scrimmage. He is a bit undersized, and like said earlier, he has only played in 24 career games. With that said, I expect Kamara to be a 2nd round pick, with the chance to sneak into the 1st round, depending on how many running back needy teams end up with a 1st round pick.
