Good Pick: Kenny Vaccaro (S)

Yep. That’s Kenny. Just flying out of nowhere, smacking the heck out of people. There were a lot of different players that Payton could have pulled the trigger on. Vaccaro has proven to be one of the most versatile defensive playmakers the Saints have drafted in quite some time.

Bad Pick: Rufus Johnson (DE)

He hasn’t seen any action yet and there’s no way he is a bust right now. He might see some action in the next two years or so to justify being off this list.

Missed Opportunity: Andre Ellington (RB)

It’s only a matter of time before Darren Sproles starts to slow down and Andre Ellington would have been a great pick to succeed him. He had a couple of big performances with the Arizona Cardinals and really got me out of a pinch in a couple of fantasy football games this year.
