Kenny Vaccaro could be the next Troy Polamalu
 
here is a scouting report on Troy:


Troy Polamalu is regarded as the most versatile safety in the NFL and a dominating player who was voted 2010 defensive player of the year. At 29, the 16th pick of the 2003 draft is at his peak.

Polamalu is an explosive hitter and is reckless with his body, but he's also a sound tackler. He has a knack for timing blitzes well. He prepares exceptionally well and also has unusually good instincts. His ability to diagnose may be unsurpassed.

At 5-foot-10, 207 pounds, he doesn't have the speed to run downfield with fast wide receivers, but his cover ability is excellent and he can handle a receiver on underneath routes as well as tight ends and backs. He has top ball skills and comes up with a lot of takeaways.

The quarterback has to identify where the six-time Pro Bowler is at all times. It helps to use pre-snap motion to move Polamalu away from the play or identify where he will be and keep the play away from him.
Super Bowl scouting report: Troy Polamalu - Chicago Tribune


it sounds very similar to Kenny's scouting report.
is it possible we have our own Troy Polamalu in Kenny.

What do yall think.

Little early for comparisons like this IMO

I like the guy as much as anybody else, but nobody has seen him play pro ball yet. Let's not get our hopes up unnecessarily high just yet

No...don't put that on him. I honestly hope he can just tackle and cover. It would be a welcomed change to the secondary.
