Kenny Vaccaro was selected in the first round by the New Orleans Saints in the 2013 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York, New York Thursday night. Kenny Vaccaro is the 10th defensive player from the Texas Longhorns to be selected in the first round of the NFL draft.
Here are some of the tweets as the selection was announced and the aftermath:

I expect Kenny Vaccaro to make an immediate impact for the New Orleans Saints. Rob Ryan does a tremendous job at developing defensive backs. I believe that with his versatility, Kenny Vaccaro will be an All Pro safety in his rookie season.
