Well Vacarro is listed as a FS, but does have some in the box skills too.

Harper has been one of the better SS's around covering TE's for several years. Are you thinking of Jenkins?

FS needs to catch the ball and have greater range.

Watching his highlights, call me crazy but he has a lot Malcolm Jenkins in him. Which can be a good thing or bad thing... depending on which one decides to show up.
