Saints Select Texas FS Kenny Vaccaro (Rd.1, No.15)
With the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Saints select Texas FS Kenny Vaccaro. He is a highly impressive athlete and is one of the most complete safety prospects to enter the NFL the past several years. His elite speed and explosiveness allows him to make plays all over the field vs. the run and pass, and his agility and smoothness allow him to play under control despite playing at such a high speed. His most impressive effort this season came against West Virginia, when he went man-to-man for much of the night vs. the explosive and elusive Tavon Austin and more than held his own. He is outstanding on run plays outside the box, as he takes excellent angles to the boundary and is able to stay square to his target and finish effectively in space. His ability to slide down and play nickel back only adds to his value at the next level, as coverage ability is paramount for safeties in today's NFL which is so often based on spreading the field and exposing isolated match-ups.

Thanks for the info Steve-Rob,
We were so bad on defense last year it's hard to criticize any thing we get on defense.
I'm not familiar with the guy, but I really don't follow college.
So far the only people I hear that are complaining are people that didn't want a defensive back. Nothing really critical of his play.
Let's see what today brings.
Man a second round pick would have been nice.
