Gonzo burned our LB's and CB's and Jenkins for most of both games.

It doesn't surprise me in the least that some fans assumed it was Harper.

Re: New Orleans Saints select Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro with the 15th pick

Vaccaro (6-foot, 214) was a 32-game starter for the Longhorns, leading the team in tackles (107) as a senior and finishing his career with five interceptions to go with four forced fumbles. Despite average long speed (4.63), Vaccaro displays outstanding range and man-coverage skills on tape, in addition to aggressiveness in run support. He jumped 38" vertically at the Combine and showed splendid short-area movement with a 6.78 three-cone drill. Vaccaro has an NFL-ready skill set because he can cover one-on-one and guard the deep half as a single-high safety. The Texas products' specialty is lining up against mismatch targets, whether it be quick slot receivers or larger tight ends. That will certainly help in a division which features Tony Gonzalez and Greg Olsen.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I like the pick, and glad to see it. I wanted Jones, but this still puts a smile on my face

Odd that he timed slower than Jenkins and Harper in the 40. I didn't know that.

Easy to see on his highlight tape, he's constantly chasing after ball carriers and not in good position to make a tackle
First thing I noticed is very slow to the ball and has attitude problems (pushing after the whistle)
Massively underwhelmed with this pick, lets hope he can prove me wrong
