Here's how we know Cyprien is superior to Vaccaro, Jonathan rarely takes bad angles and knows how to properly wrap up his target. He's also very good in the open field. Vaccaro, on the other hand, is the complete opposite.


Only thing that worries me is Cyprien didn't play against anyone....he looked good sharing the field with scrubs.

Easier for him to look like his angles are better when his competition is weaker....bc frankly he want tested like Vacarro was

Well, while he didn't play against top competition at FIU, he did have a stellar showing at the Senior Bowl which is why he's considered a first round prospect.

Incidentally, his best game of the season came against Louisville and he rocked it.

Yeah, but a senior bowl sets up for a S to look good. Bunch of random dudes trying to play offense together for the first time? I'd like that as a S.

I like what I see from him though

You can make the whole "he faced weak competition" argument for almost every player in the draft.

Star wasn't facing Alabama offensive lines every week, Austin wasn't exactly tearing up good defenses in that conference, Allen wasnt facing a lot of NFL DBs, Te'O got checked by alabamas offense, Richardsons flaws show when he has to play the run a lot more than the pass. Point is you just have to really evaluate the player and determine if their game can succeed in the NFL.

Don't get carried away with the toughness of college conferences. So many good players come from small school. Same could be said about Eric Fisher being from Central Michigan.
