RSP Boiler Room No.81: RB Alvin Kamara (Tennessee)


Matt Waldman of the Rookie Scouting Portfolio examines Running Back Alvin Kamara's on field ability for the 2017 NFL Draft

What constitutes a broken tackle? Is there an idea film angle for studying film. Waldman examines some of Alvin Kamara’s tape and the answers aren’t what you expect. 

Tennessee’s Alvin Kamara is an exciting player. He’s also one who can easily have qualities projected onto his game that don’t exist—or at least don’t exist to the degree that some believe. It’s what happens when have a high-energy runner with quickness, balance, and agility.

This RSP Boiler Room examines two plays where Kamara appears to break a lot of tackles. But what should be counted as a broken tackle? Or, more importantly, what type of broken tackles are a sign of power?

In addition to answering these questions, I discuss and illustrate the unique values of broadcast, end zone, and All-22 angles of film viewing. Although the major networks would like to tell you the All-22 is best, each has its advantages and disadvantages.

I’ll have another Boiler Room on Kamara and his decision-making soon.
