Thread: All signs point to Kenny Vaccaro

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    All signs point to Kenny Vaccaro

    to be the guy at 1/17. Unless Jones or Mingo miraculously fall. With the signings of Foster, Foote and Burress. Vacarro would see playing time in the Nickel and Dime sub packages and be a nice insurance if/when Troy goes down
    I'd love to see them trade out of this pick but.....this is what I got


    1) Marcus Peters-CB-Washington
    2)
    Danielle Hunter-OLB-LSU
    3) Alex Carter-DB-Stanford
    4
    ) Jeremy Langford-RB-Mich St
    5) Blake Bell-TE-OU

    6) Titus Davis-WR-Central Mich
    6c)-Sean Hickey-OT-Syracuse
    7) Julian Wilson-DB-Oklahoma

    I view most of those signings as "depth, but, capable of starting" type signings... allowing again for a BPA philosophy. With these signings you mention, only OG comes off the board... ILB and WR are still quite possible, as is OLB and NT...

    I agree. I would prefer staying put at 17 and drafting a corner, or trading down a few spots and getting Eifert if that is possible.

    that's one guy from 12 years ago.

    my point is, that for such a bigtime program it seems like their players don't make much of an impact at the NFL level. Always going to be exceptions with such large numbers drafted. Earl Thomas is another example. Maybe its the limas sweed effect, but there seem to be a lot of guys get picked in april and then disappear.

    I'm just leery of them, that's all.

    The Steelers are still likely to lose Keenan Lewis. Vaccaro makes sense in some regards, but is he worth the #17? Chadman wouldn't discount Desmond Trufant...
