Former Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara decided to leave school early for the draft and may have made the right decision.
NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock believes he could be in high demand when late April comes around, he wrote Wednesday on Twitter.

“COD” stands for “change of direction” in draft-lingo.
CBSSports.com lists Kamara as the fifth-best running back in the 2017 NFL Draft and a third-round pick.
Kamara rushed for 1,294 yards and 16 touchdowns during his two years in Knoxville. Kamara also showed ability as a receiver out of the backfield with 683 more yards and seven touchdowns.
Tennessee is expected to have upwards of six players taken in April’s draft. Defensive end Derek Barnett is expected to be a first-round pick.
