So far, he’s been able to impress the coaching staff with his ability in the classroom, which is a positive sign for the rookie. Payton even invoked the name of one of the running back’s idols when discussing Kamara’s level of intelligence.Are we buying it though? We didn't us Marshall Faulk as part of our metric here but still, so far, it looks like, yes.
“There are some traits that Alvin Kamara has that remind me of Marshall Faulk, with regards to his intelligence and his ability to run routes,” Payton said. “(Faulk) was as good as there was in that element of the game, and probably one of the top three or four backs of all time. He was one of the smartest players I ever coached.”
