Ok WHO DAT NATION it's time:
With the 15th overall pick in the 2013 draft the New Orleans Saints select:
Kenny Vaccaro S Texas Image: http://www.neworleanssaints.com/assets/images/article_images/2013_draft/vaccarro_article_draft.jpg
Vaccaro is a confident, athletic All-Big 12 performer with potential as a combo safety (14 pass break-ups the past two seasons, often playing as a nickel back). He still needs to improve his instincts as a last line of defense. An athlete whose aggressive nature and man coverage skills will be coveted, Vaccaro figures to be one of the first safeties selected in April?s draft, most likely in the second or third round -- much higher than his uncle, A.J. Johnson, a sixth-round pick out of Texas State in 1989 who played cornerback in the NFL for seven seasons and was a member of the Super Bowl XXVI-winning Washington Redskins.
With the 75th overall pick in the 2013 draft the New Orleans Saints select:
Terron Armstead OT Arkansas-Pine Bluff Image: http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS4VdfVLiG4-gBwdAJx2JkugeUPpPaQf1VvTU8FK3wsQbpipx8WxA
Armstead wasn't only a very good football player in high school, but he was also a key part of a record-setting championship track and field team. In his senior year of high school, Armstead led the team with a toss of 62 feet, 3 inches in the shot put. Armstead received several Division I football scholarship offers coming out of high school, but elected to attend Arkansas-Pine Bluff because his coach, former Redskins linebacker Monte Coleman, was the only one that would allow him to also participate in track and field. Armstead not only managed to be a three-time All-SWAC football player, but also an eight-time SWAC champ in track and field.
Over his career for Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Armstead has played in 37 games. He started all 12 games at left tackle in his senior season. Armstead really made a name for himself at the East-West Shrine Game, where he performed extremely well. His play was so promising that he was called to play in the Senior Bowl as an injury replacement for Dallas Thomas.
With the 82nd overall pick in the 2013 draft the New Orleans Saints select:
John Jenkins DT Georgia Image: http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ5Gbmw4YgJOLudZXJNLN8BfKGT0O1VhQp1W6dzIFAoAg62E_ZTiA
Jenkins had his pick of elite Football Bowl Subdivision schools coming out of Gulf Coast Community College in Mississippi after the 2010 season. The four-star recruit passed up Auburn, Miami and other programs to join the Bulldogs, and had a hand in their SEC East championship in his first year on campus. The Bulldogs hoped he can be as big a difference-maker at nose tackle as another junior college transfer, Terrence Cody, was for Alabama in their 2009 BCS championship season. Jenkins? build is not as sloppy as that of "Mount Cody," and his pure width and athleticism makes him an intriguing prospect.
The Connecticut native was slowed down a bit in the 2011 preseason with a hamstring injury, and also suffered from heat exhaustion in his first August practice. But he played in every game, starting seven of the last nine contests while accumulating 28 tackles, six for loss and three sacks while facing constant double teams. The school also credited him with 10 quarterback pressures, a large number for a large man. His role continued to grow for his senior season (50 tackles, two for loss, one sack) as he played a number of positions along Georgias 3-4 defense.
With the 144th overall pick in the 2013 draft the New Orleans Saints select:
Kenny Stills WR Oklahoma Image: https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT_3rsUCoFmpCPezV6baEJ4WyKrNgQwjMf-RDcaPvIefn555Cez9A
Stills was a highly sought after four-star recruit. As a high school senior, he had 45 receptions for 914 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2009. Stills is the all-time leader in receiving yards in San Diego. He was named 2009 CIF first-team wide receiver. Kenny’s father, also named Kenny, played safety for the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. Stills’ uncle, Gary Stills, played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.
Stills had an instant impact for the Sooners, as he started every game in 2010 as a true freshman, and set Oklahoma freshman records for receptions and receiving yardage. Stills caught 61 passes for 786 yards and five touchdowns. In 2011, Stills once again caught 61 passes, but this time totaled 849 yards and eight touchdowns. He was named to the Coaches second-team All-Big 12. As a junior, Stills caught 82 passes for 964 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was once again named second-team All-Big 12.
With the 183rd overall pick in the 2013 draft the New Orleans Saints select:
Rufus Johnson DE Tarleton State Image: http://www.jrosports.com/wp-content/uploads/Rufus-Johsnon.jpg
Johnson has been timed in the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds. He said his best attribute is his pass-rushing ability. As a senior, Johnson had at least a half sack in seven of Tarleton State's nine games.
While there was few scouting reports available on Johnson, he is viewed as having raw pass-rushing skills, a trait that obviously caught the eye of the Saints' staff.
"I am an aggressive player and a wonderful pass-rusher," Johnson said. "My pass-rushing skills are top-notch."
