The Saints have been known for having good running backs over the years, dating back to when Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara were playing in the prime of their careers. However, both players are older and it isn’t known what the depth is going to look like after Kamara with Ingram and David Johnson set to be free agents.
As Alvin Kamara gets older, the Saints will want to find another running back that can share the workload more and that is exactly what Kenny McIntosh can do after what he showed at Georgia.
He spent four years with the Bulldogs but saw limited snaps his first three years but this past season had by far his best with 149 rushing attempts, 829 rushing yards, 10 rushing touchdowns with 42 receptions, 505 receiving yards, and two additional touchdowns.
McIntosh can contribute, either on the ground and through the air, and eventually could take over as the featured running back in this offense.
