Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas Longhorns (6-1, 218 pounds)

With Malcolm Jenkins starting at one safety spot, the Saints select the Longhorns' Kenny Vaccaro to give them two elite safeties. Vaccaro is the uncommon safety who excels against the run and is outstanding in pass coverage.  Most impressive is Vaccaro's ability to cover slot receivers and tight ends.  His addition gives the Saints great backend defense and great defensive versatility because their two safeties are now interchangeable.
