2013 NFL Draft: Breaking down winning and worrisome picks

Best pick (first round)


Wait for it ... Kenny Vaccaro, safety, drafted 15th overall by the New Orleans Saints. I've watched a lot of Saints football over the past three years, and I can tell you that this team needed help in the deep middle. I've had many a conversation with my colleague -- and former New Orleans standout -- Darren Sharper about the back four on that football team. Ultimately, the linebackers and secondary let this team down through much of last season -- as well as during the loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the 2011 playoffs. Let's not forget the poor tackling from the secondary during the postseason prior; remember "beast mode?" Vaccaro instantly boosts a safety group that features the aging Roman Harper and the wildly inconsistent Malcolm Jenkins, who has placed the bar high but has yet to keep it there in his young career.

I agree our DBs & LBs let us down. I don't see Vaccaro as the best first round pick

Please please let this be true. A good pick in the first is highly unusual for this staff. Even if he wasn't the best pick in the first round he's still a good pick for us. He fills a desperate need in the secondary.
I don't know if he'll have a Darren Sharper type of impact or not but I'll certainly give him the chance.

I don't see him coming in and automatically taking Harper or Jenkins spot.

I think we'll see him at the Nickel/Slot his first year and maybe at safety with Jenkins/Harper when Ryan unveils his “psycho” formation...
