I love Vacarro, and he might end up being better than what we have, but its ridiculous to claim he's already better than the one's we have. They've proven themselves, Vacarro hasn't even made a 53 man roster yet.

Aaron Curry was named the can't miss prospect of the decade several years ago. He's now out of the league and Scott friggin Shanle isn't.

we had the two lowest ranked safeties in the NFL. I say we might need to take a peek at it. We need game changers. Turnover causers. Kenny Vacarro's. Trust in Burna. My insight we lead us to the promise land!!!!

I want a safey in the draft and if Vaccaro is there when we pick I hope we choose him.

Check Harper and Jenkins rankings when they were in Gregg Williams man to man defense. We're moving closer towards that with Ryan and farther away from the Spags zone scheme.

In fact; Harper will be in the box when Rob has the "46" in short yardage situations... I can see him getting more sacks/tackles now than he did with Williams

I honestly don't see him coming in and playing worse then those two did last year. I truly believe he's the next great safety of this generation. Scott Shanle should've been out of the league 4 years ago. Idk what's going on there....i rather have Curry.

We had numerous players ranked near dead last in the NFL last year, including many still on the team at CB, OLB, DE, and ILB.

Take your pick, every position sucked last year, not just the last line of defense.

Typically safeties are exposed after the rest of the defense blew it.

Typically, but our safeties have been exposed since Sharper hung up the cleets. It wasn't just last year. Harper made the Pro Bowl off tackles. He had a lot of tackles because our defense was poo. A safety should never lead the team in tackles.

We can make excuses for them. A good pass rush helps out the secondary...well...a good secondary helps out the pass rush.

I like Vaccaro, but I'd only draft him if.......

Mingo
Ansah
Jones
Werner
Richerdson
Ogletree
Rhodes
Lotulelei
Jordan
Millner
Floyd
Tavon Austin

Are all off the board, did I miss anyone?
