Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think Vaccaro is going to pleasantly surprise a lot of doubters. I can't put my fine on exactly why, but I think he is going to be a stud....

I don't think he's going to see limited snaps... just not nearly as much as Jones.

Re: Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

Roman Harper sucks that bad so the opportunity is there for Kenny Vaccaro...

Jones had Big John Jenkins and a host of talent round him against much lesser collegiate competition...

Of course I think Ogletree will have the bigger impact...

Re: Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

So the way it works out is that Big John makes our DEs look at good as Jones did.... Vaccaro beats them all out...
Win win.


Why again do we care what another team drafted?

Vaccaro is a SS... and should take Harper's place. That being said if he doesn't end up starting over the worst safety in the NFL in the last two years then they made the wrong decision drafting him.

Vaccaro can play SS, FS, and slot corner... He did at Texas

Re: Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

Vaccaro will have a good season at safety, Jones will also. 2 totally different positions how can that be compared. I just hope Vaccaro plays sound football and can read where the ball gets thrown, the youth movement is here and with time we may have a great D, if we can crack a top 15 this year we will be in great shape to make a run to the big game. I would like to see Vaccaro with IAQ at FS & SS rotating from time to time. And if healthy don't count out Romeus at an ILB position to not only start but to rule, I love that guy, he is a beast, Jones would look bad compared to Romeus.

Re: Call it Now: Vaccaro vs. Jones

If Vaccaro can't win a starting job at safety, then he wasn't worthy of a #15 pick. Jenkins has been a bust a safety, and while Harper is a good in the box safety, he's limited overall and certainly not a playmaker. Jones will start for the Steelers who will use him to his strengths. Jones looks to have more impact. But, if Jenkins starts at CB with Vaccaro taking over at FS, I think the Saints defense will be better at two positions. That potentially is more impact overall to a team with a record setting bad defense that still went 7-9 last year. The difference being a guaranteed return to the playoffs. The Steelers are not going to make the playoffs this year regardless of how Jones plays.

That's a big "if" and I'll be curious to see if he can make it through the OTAs and preseason without getting sidelined by an injury once again.

In any case, I think Romeus would be a better fit as a rushing OLB than ILB, and I'd much rather move Wilson to the interior and replace him with Romeus than the other way around.

Who knows what's going to happen with our LB situation. We suddenly have quite a few players vying for spots...

And signing Thomas and Reddick doesn't help that situation any, I think these two make the game day roster and provide immediate depth if not compete to start...
