All-rookie this year, all-pro next! That might be stretching it a little, but, man am I glad we got this guy. I was briefly (like about 5-10 seconds) disappointed we didn't take jarvis jones, but by the end of the year I couldn't remember why I would've ever wanted Jones over Vaccaro. Looking forward to watching this young man come into his prime. He's gonna be really special.

All of the Saints draft picks this year became starters besides Rufus, that's a damn good draft considering the level the Saints are at.

San Diego's Keenan Allen and Buffalo's Kiko Alonso should be the Rookies of the Year on Offense and Defense...

But Kenny Vaccaro is the best rookie first rounder we've had under the Payton Era...

Kiko Alonso Defensive Rookie of The Year?! Wow I guess those whopping 6 victories mean more than being part of a rebuilt defense that was ranked#5 in all of football and #2 against the pass. Sometimes the writers prove that they are absolute jokes. This is one such instance.

That says alot, both of how much we were depleted in youth and talent and how good a job the personnel department did (and should have been doing) to match the effort of Coaching on the field...

Thinking of that movie Enemy at the Gates with Jude Law, the personnel department has been subpar since the 07 draft (which draft class is rated alot higher than it should be because EVERYONE in the League including their sons missed on Colston until the seventh round)...

Once Jenkins and Harper are out of the way, Vaccaro can really take off and be an elite player among all those rookies named...
