Most mock drafts have the New Orleans Saints taking a pass rushing outside linebacker with their 15th pick in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. But this doesn't mean they won't do some studying of several defensive back prospects.

Former Texas Longhorn safety Kenny Vaccaro announced on Twitter that he will be visiting the Saints on Tuesday of next week.

Of course Vaccaro has been making the rounds lately and is considered to be one of the best available safeties in the draft. In a majority of mock drafts Vaccaro is expected to be drafted somewhere in the first 20 picks.

During his four years with Texas he had 231 tackles, 14 for a loss, 2 sacks, 5 interceptions, 24 passes defended, and 4 forced fumbles. Vaccaro was known not only for his coverage skills but his ability to make jarring tackles as well.

At the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine the 6'0", 214 lbs. Vaccaro ran a 4.63 40-yard dash, bench pressed 15 reps of 225 pounds, had a 38 inch vertical, a 121 inch broad jump, and was the top performer in the 20-yard shuttle with a 4.06.
