I'm wondering if we will see any trades from this point forward, from the Saints. I've reserved myself to the fact that we will not be picking tomorrow night. But I would like to see a very busy day on Saturday.

We upgraded our worst position on the team by far. Vaccaro could be great, could be average or could be another Harper. We will wait to see.

My question is who does he replace.. cutting Harper saves 3.5 mil...

My assumption is you will see more blitzing from our linebackers, which is going to match up our safeties more. Again, that is just my assumption.

Another wasted first round pick. With no run defense and no pass rush the DBs are toast.

How do you know we won't have run defense or a pass rush?

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

We needed a safety that can help us cover down field. Taking Vaccaro allows Ryan to not deviate front what he likes to do with our front 7. It's not the sexy pick quite of few of us wanted... but it's a good sound choice. Harper isn't a spring chicken anymore either. Obviously Ryan likes our linebackers more than some of you think. Let's not underestimate what Ryan could do with Wilson, Butler, and Galette.

Did I miss some quality offseason additions at DL or LB? There isnt a lesser talented front 7 in the NFL.

sorry with the players still on the board i can not back the pick. besides the saints so far have not added anyone to the secondary that can generate turnovers. questionable tackling to boot? i do not get it.
