Norcross' Kamara named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

Norcross' Kamara named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

The 21-year-old Cleveland native is the first Saints player to be selected Defensive Rookie of the Year. Fast forward, and another Buckeye has accomplished the same honor.

The most electric and elusive talent in the New Orleans Saints' renowned 2017 draft class is taking home some hardware. This year, that was absolutely not the case. He finished the season with 728 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 120 carries while catching 81 passes for 826 yards and five more scores. Of the 50 votes cast for the award, Lattimore received 45 of them.

The NFL announced the honor Friday morning.

Lattimore wasn't alone in terms of winning prestigious awards, either.

Alvin Kamara, a running back for the New Orleans Saints and a graduate of a metro Atlanta high school, was just named the 2017 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the year.

Over the course of 13 appearances-he missed three games because of an ankle injury and a concussion-Lattimore recorded five interceptions and 18 pass breakups en route to a Pro Bowl nod.

Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White and Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt also had excellent rookie seasons. His rapid development made future Hall-of-Famer Adrian Peterson expendable.

As a Vol, Kamara totaled 1,294 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns on 210 carries in two seasons. When in coverage, receivers only caught a combined 36 receptions for 486 yards and no touchdowns. Kamara led all rookies with 81 receptions, the third-most by a rookie running back in National Football League history.
