On Thursday, I shared the opinions of several analysts who are high on the New Orleans Saints' choice of safety Kenny Vaccaro in the first round of the NFL draft. There seemed to be even more enthusiasm about the Saints' later choices.

- Longtime NFL scouting guru Gil Brandt was extremely high on the Saints' third-round choices of Arkansas-Pine Bluff offensive tackle Terron Armstead and Georgia defensive tackle John Jenkins. Before the draft, Brandt had Jenkins rated 38th overall among draft prospects and Armstead 55th.

"I thought they had a very good draft for not having a second-round pick," said Brandt, who now analyzes the league for among other outlets. "I thought the kid from Georgia was 35 to 50. And I love Armstead. I talked to Sean (Payton) about him coming back from (the scouting combine in) Indianapolis and I said, 'You know, he's a guy you could probably play him at tight end. You see him in their (Division II) playoff game, he catches a pass. You can probably play him at defensive end, too, and he could rush the passer. I think he'll be a good player."
