Saints Nation: Presenting the 2013 New Orleans Saints Draft Class

Another year of drafting is in the books and here is the draft class the Saints have added to their roster this season. Overall, I just want to say that the Saints killed this draft. Of course I'll reserve full judgement until we see how these players develop, but the goal of the exercise is always to improve competition and your overall roster and I feel the Saints absolutely did that. I do also sense the Saints leaned a little bit more on "need", as oppose to just picking the "best player available". Picking the following positions: S, LT, NT, WR, DE support my theory. Here are your newest Saints:

1st round, 15th overall: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas

3rd round, 75th overall: Terron Armstead, T, Arkansas-Pine Bluff

3rd round, 82nd overall: John Jenkins, NT, Georgia

5th round, 144th overall: Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma

6th round, 183rd overall: Rufus Johnson, DE, Tarleton St.


Stay tuned for the undrafted rookies which will be annouced soon. Word is the Saints are already aggressively pursuing QB Ryan Griffin of Tulane, who was coached by former Saints' receiver coach Curtis Johnson.
