Anyone else think Vaccaro would be a terrible pick?

Calling it right now: If Vaccaro is on the board when we are on the clock and both Star and Austin are gone...I have a feeling Gettleman is going to do everything he can to trade back.

If Vaccaro isn't our guy he is perfect trade bait ahead of the Saints. The Bengals reportedly love him and teams like the Packers have a need at safety, as well as both the 49ers and Ravens. I'd much rather trade back to any one of those teams and take Cyprien as he will likely be available still.

Phillip Thomas is just as versatile as Vaccaro and he's going the mid-rounds. I prefer Tavon Austin a 1000x over a safety who can't make tackles beyond the LOS and gets burned deep.

Interestingly enough, Thomas has the identical weaknesses but he's far superior in zone whereas Vaccaro struggles in that area.


The Panthers will not be drafting Tavon Austin.

I would hate it, the team would play him at SS and with his tackling technique issues, I just don't like that at 14. Bad angles, shooting uncontrolled into the backfield, going high for tackles and not wrapping up..... ehhhhh........

My point is I would draft anyone but Vaccaro at 14th. He's the one prospect that I don't want. I'm good with Floyd, Allen, Hopkins, Warmack, etc but I can't stand Vaccaro.

Pretty much this. The scenario I'm hoping most for is a trade back, and to argue Gettleman's philosophy, the idea of having a dollar could still apply if we had more picks to try to address more issues: in that way, the entire draft class could end up being a dollar if we had more bandaids to address more wounds. I understand the need for secondary help, but I don't think Vaccaro is the guy and if no offensive or defensive linemen are available worthy of the #14, I think more picks helps us in the long run.

Either way, under no circumstance do I advocate trading any picks from next year's draft for this year. We really need to start having full draft classes again.
