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

Would rather have seen Floyd and beefed up the D-line.
Then again, I'm used to 4-3, we're moving to 3-4.

Still not ready to give up on Galette and some other players on this D. I think they were mis-utilized last season.... the young, strong players weren't even allowed to start!

Just remember Josh Bullocks was a ball hawk in college... that doesn't always translate. Adrian Wilson had 3 career INT's in college. Dashon Goldson had 4.

TwistedTiger,

I know how you feel. But I do think we have to take last season with a grain of salt. There is no taking away how bad the defense was. 7,000+ yards... it is what it is. But, I think Ryan and most importantly the addition of our head coach back can make this unit better.

I was kind of excited when I saw Jones sitting there, but I think this pick tells us that the Saints like what they have at outside linebacker. Plus, we heard Loomis reference Akiem Hicks in his presser yesterday. Plus, Will Smith is getting paid, so don't expect him to be on the sideline next season. They must think that they can compete with their front seven the way it is.

Just throwing this out there as well. If Harper is on the chopping block, as I have mentioned here previously, I do think he will be a June 1 casualty. And, Ivory is moved, we will have some money to perhaps address the left tackle position in free agency... or trade.

There's not much more we could do this offseason and draft to make a miracle happen with our defense. We can only go with what we hope: we're not as bad a defense as the abomination that walked the field last season.

On one hand I think Spags defense served to EXPOSE the players we did have.
Then again, NO WAY we can 'turn it all around' on defense in 1 offseason.

What's most depressing is this is a defense heavy draft. If we ONLY had 1 more pick in the 1st.... or even some 2nd round picks..... ARRRG

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

Good Lord at all the pessimists... This was a freakin' great pick.

To anyone that thinks different, please go apply to be an NFL scout. There's PLENTY of stars in the NFL that I can guarantee you weren't lobbying for the saints to pick on draft day and PLENTY of busts that you didn't see coming.

Oh, and did some of you know Sedrick Ellis would be nothing more than a mediocre player? Let's leave the drafting to the coaches, please.

We haven't struck gold with a first round pick yet, but we've drafted some VERY successful players. Most on this site have never even watched Vaccaro play, so slow down on the criticism. It's getting ridiculous.

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

I actually got goose bumps when I realized we finally have a real safety.
Harper is good in the box which is what a SS does.......but that's it. Jenkins is lost and doesn't have a clue.

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

I really wanted Jarvis Jones but I was Leary his health could be an issue but at least he's a play maker. Kenny Vacarro IMO is drafting Malcolm Jenkins all over again. An athletic guy with horrible hands
