Panthers take Star Lotulelei, Saints draft Kenny Vaccaro
|04.25.13 at 9:59 pm ET|
The Panthers filled their need at defensive tackle by taking Utah’s Star Lotulelei 14th overall Thursday night. Lotulelei had some health concerns after a heart issue prevented him from working out at the Combine, but he alleviated those concerns by turning in a productive Pro Day.
The Saints followed the pick by selecting Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro, who was the top-rated safety in the draft. It was a smart pick for the Saints given that they didn’t get strong production out of their safeties last year and Malcolm Jenkins is entering the final year of his contract.
