The NFL Network, and current players around the league, apparently think very highly of New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.

The 22-year old Kamara, who was selected by the Saints in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, had a memorable rookie year, rushing for 728 yards and 8 touchdowns, while hauling in another 826 receiving yards and 5 scores.

For his efforts, Kamara was named the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Kamara becomes the fifth Saints player to make the list, joining defensive end Cameron Jordan (#26), running back Mark Ingram (#43), receiver Michael Thomas (#81) and defensive back Marshon Lattimore (#82).

Quarterback Drew Brees is expected to become the sixth Saints player to join the group, when the top 10 is announced next week.
