    Anybody who watched Tennessee’s 13 games last year saw how explosive and elusive running back Alvin Kamara could be.

    The junior college transfer and former Alabama back was a huge weapon for the Vols, piling up 1,098 all-purpose yards and averaging 7.3 yards every time he touched the football via rush, reception or punt return.

    Pro Football Focus has put a number on just how tough to tackle Kamara is – giving him an Elusive Rating of 109.2, good for fourth in the nation among all running backs in the nation in 2015 (and ahead of LSU running back Leonard Fournette).

    Be sure to read PFF’s look-ahed to the Vols’ 2016 season. The film-analyzing website continues to be very bullish about Tennessee’s chances to contend in the SEC and nationally this season.
