New Orleans Saints rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro didn't have time to dip his toe into the NFL waters Sunday afternoon in the 23-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

He plunged in head first instead.



Vaccaro was one of four Saints players to take every defensive snap against the Falcons, along with Malcolm Jenkins, Cam Jordan and Curtis Lofton. He also played 11 snaps on special teams.

Undoubtedly, Vaccaro has a lot to learn. The first-round draft pick, who was sometimes criticized for his overaggressive play in training camp, received a personal foul late in the first quarter when he was flagged for unnecessary roughness on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Vaccaro also chose to move up and help Roman Harper cover tight end Tony Gonzalez with Atlanta in the red zone early in the third quarter. Corey White, who was left to defend the end zone without help, was beaten by Julio Jones for a Falcons touchdown.

Ironically, Vaccaro also wasn't in the correct position on his best play, when he tipped the ball away from Gonzalez's hands and deflected the potential winning touchdown catch into Harper's hands.

Re: New Orleans Saints rookie Kenny Vaccaro debuts with game-changing play

Whats the BFD with Vaccaro being out of position on the last play of the game? If he would of done what he was suppose to do, the Saints lose that game because IMO Gonzo would have easily caught that pass in front of Jenkins and Harper. Polamalu free lances on almost every single play and every one acts like he's the greatest ever, let Vaccaro do what ever he wants to do

Good choice. I am really hopeful he will be one of our few really good 1st round picks.
