I'd be surprised to see us select Vaccaro at 14; to say the least.
His stock may be on the rise but I doubt he will go top 20. He would be a serious reach at 14 and I think there will be better players on the board that can make a bigger impact on this team right away.
Although, if the reports that we wanted Barron at 9 last year are true, Rivera must be behind the idea that we need a safety. I just wish there was an Earl Thomas/ Eric Berry in this draft.
I like Kenny's athleticism and instincts and he is as physical as they come but I don't see him as a true ball-hawking safety and this defense needs takeaways. However, if CJ and Kraken continue to get after the QBs as they have been, that could go a long away towards helping him out. Vaccaro covers ground in the secondary and looks to be a sure tackler in the open field. He doesn't shy away from contact and next to Godfrey they would both be good in run support but we need someone who excels in coverage and I'm just not sure how he is in that regard.
If he was the pick, I'd support the pick and Kenny 100%.
