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

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Solid pick IMO. Obviously some here have forgotten how an all day open Vernon Davis and numerous Seattle receivers kept us from superbowls. Vaccaro > Harper...

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

I really like this pick! He was one of the top three realistic players that I wanted. It addresses a need and he's a hell of a player. I wonder if Sean and Mickey reconsidered taking S. Floyd.....I'm still surprised he made it that far! I remember feeling the same way about Ingram a couple of years back....

I don't know about that Danno- and I usually am on page with your analysis. Harp is always getting torched by the TE

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

We got the best safety in the draft!!! We need help there. His predecessor at Texas did pretty well.

Earl Thomas, DB for the Seattle Seahawks at NFL.com
We now have a taller more athletic version of him.
Our defense just got better because of him.
And there are NO question marks on his health.

Well, I am interested to see Hicks' progression, and Cam really started to turn it up last season. So I think that will be interesting to watch. Smith is a solid player. I like the addition of Butler, and I'd like to give Junior and Wilson an op to surprise. The 3-4 may suit our players better.

I thought lofton helped our run D last year... that might be misleading though since you could pass on us at will

I am not sure of MJ's 40 time, but watching him chase down that receiver was something to remember and that doesn't surprise me (without knowing his time). Harper, I am surprised by.

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

I said that I wouldn't be upset if we picked Vaccaro, and I'm not. Very good pick and glad to have him on board.

I am a little stunned that we passed on Jarvis Jones, but I can't be angry with who we got. If we had passed on Jones AND Vaccaro to select an offensive player, I would have turned off the TV and vowed never to watch the draft again.

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

we will soon find out when goes against the elite NFL TE he will play against this year. i do not buy into it. i just do not see it. he was great trade bait at 15. his addition was good enough to replace addition players trade picks would have brought. if he had batter hands and better tackling skills then sure. I think you could have improved the safety position later, its a deep draft
but .... i am done here gag rule

I can remember Harp doing well in week 1 of the '10 season against Shiancoe, and there may have been a few other times that don't come to mind at this time. But those aren't elite players. He's really been dominated by the better tight ends in the league. Some of that is expected (some players are just really hard for anyone to defend), but you gotta be competitive, and neither of our safeties have been that.

I'm still not sure that Vaccaro's arrival has anything to do with Harper, though. Kenny could play either position.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

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

We will trade down they said.
Oak you dont understand the value in the trade down they said.
We want more draft picks they said.

I said after the first round you are drafting projects, not starters.
I said we would draft a shovel ready starter in the first round.
