Re: How Much Do You Like the Kenny Vaccaro Pick?

A few mocks I read had us taking Vaccaro. I'm not a big fan of the 1st Rd. Safety, especially when we don't have a 2nd Rd. pick. Let's face it, we've not done so well using high picks on DB's (M. Jenkins, P. Robinson). Hopefully we've not made the same mistake again.

A safety completely changed our defense once before. It will happen again with Vacarro. A lot of people wanted a pass rusher. Well damn, we've got 3 or 4 players on our roster that were there to do nothing but rush the passer in Butler, Wilson, and Gallette. Vilma can get after the QB when healthy as well. I'm sure they'll add another player in the draft as well. Calm down people...although....I'm rooting for the Saints to take Mathiu in the 3rd...fingers crossed.

you might be right. I would've taken him in the 1st. I believe in his game. Secondary players don't come along wreaking that type of havoc every day.

Re: How Much Do You Like the Kenny Vaccaro Pick?

Not a fan of the pick. Any way you slice it, he's not worth a top #15 pick. The coaches themselves are saying he's a situational guy and not a starter on the team. You don't draft a guy at #15 for your defense, which set records for being bad the previous year, and plug him in as a backup. LOL. Any type of trade down picking up atleast a 3rd would have been better. It was a reach. I had rather they reached for Rhodes, Jarvis Jones, Trufant, Datone Jones, Hopkins, Patterson, Collins, Brown, or even Te'o. All could crack the starting lineup. All that being said, if Jenkins moves back to his more natural position at CB or if Vaccaro flat out wins a starting position, which isn't impossible, I would be less discouraged about the pick. I'm just not a fan of the player and I clearly don't think they got value from the #15 slot.

I know everyone wanted the pass rusher with the first rounder. But who is to say we can't get one later in the draft. Again, I like the move to draft Vaccaro.

Re: How Much Do You Like the Kenny Vaccaro Pick?

I don't think picking a safety was necessarily the wrong way to go, but I just think that they could've gotten someone like Cyprien with a trade down or someone like Rambo with their 3rd.

In any case, if Vaccaro was the BPA on the Saints' board - they made the right choice.

I wanted Jones so I was disappointed, I got to admit.

That said, now that he is on our team, I will be rooting for him to be the best ever.
