Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Saints' picks: Round 1/15 -- Kenny Vaccaro, S, 6-0, 214, Texas...Even though they wanted a playmaking outside linebacker, the Saints didn't mind when the versatile Vaccaro slipped to them at No. 15. He'll likely get a shot at playing time in the secondary early. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I felt if he was available, we would be getting an awfully good defensive player to help our team. He's got that toughness and that suddenness you would like at that position (safety). He brings a physical dimension to his game which can see when you look at the tape." -- Saints coach Sean Payton, on first-round draft pick Kenny Vaccaro. - The Sports Xchange
