Who leaves the car lot in a new Ferrari
and before he even changes the channel to his favorite radio station wonders if a Lamborghini might perform better?

Yeah so did Tim Tebow, Jones is gonna be an average player at best in the NFL.

I chose to change it to "impact" because the Saints' Secondary was at the bottom of the league last year, and the Steeler's D was at the bottom in terms of tackles for a loss and sacks. So each player was drafted to rectify an equivalent problem at their position, and I'm curious which one will have the greatest personal effect on that area of their team.

Re: Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

My gut says Vaccaro will propel us so he gets my vote, with Jones medical I dont think he was ever looked at by us.

Re: Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

I have no doubt Vaccaro will be able to help us but he's stuck behind Harper and Jenkins. Even if he's going to cover slot guys, he's still stuck behind Lewis, Greer, and Robinson to start off on the depth chart. Jones has the easier path to succeed as he has a clear defined role to attack the quarterback(which suits him perfectly) and a starting spot that's probably going to be his to lose.

If the playing field was level and Vaccaro is going to be our starting FS, then maybe it would be a different story. But as of now, I think it's a one sided debate. Jarvis Jones should have a better rookie year.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I'm sorry; I don't see the #15 pick seeing limited playing time his first year... Hasn't Loomis already said they are considering moving Jenkins to the slot to allow Vaccaro to start at FS?

Re: Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

Kenny will have the bigger Impact because of his versatility and durability. The battle between Jarvis and Jason Worilds will be a good one to watch.

I think Vaccaro will play, not sure he will start over Jenkins or Harper.

For these reasons, I'd have to say Jones as well, but that doesn't mean that Jones ends up having the better career of the two in the long-run.
