Saints take Kenny Vaccaro at 15

Kenny Vaccaro AP

Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has himself a new safety.

Kenny Vaccaro, a safety from Texas, has gone to New Orleans with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft.

Vaccaro was the consensus pick as the top safety in this year’s draft, and the Saints wanted a youngster to go along with veteran starters Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins. Vaccaro can cover slot receivers and is good at playing the run inside the box, and he should make an immediate difference, both on defense and on special teams.

Last year, the Saints’ secondary was nothing short of pathetic. This year, Vaccaro should make that secondary better.

    Great pick. Jarvis Jones is super risky.

    The presentation from the young man from Saint Jude’s Hospital was simply awesome. Godspeed.

    All I heard was “Keen” at first and my head almost blew up because I thought we picked a WR(Keenan Allen). I would have liked Floyd but this was a great pick too; Kennan Lewis + Kenny Vaccaro make that secondary infinitely better.

    How long before Aints fans start up the “Goodell hates us so much he wouldn’t announce our pick” garbage…

    If they wern’t going to trade down to recoup a 2nd round pick,this is the player I wanted them to take. Just hope we can find a sleeper pick left tackle in the 3rd or 4th.

    FYI, former Saint Steve Gleason will announce their next scheduled pick, in the 3rd round. I’ll look forward to more of your ignorance when that takes place.

    I’d rather have Steve Gleason and that kid from st. Jude’s announce our picks than that blowhard goodell
