Russ Lande of the National Football Post suggests Texas S Kenny Vaccaro could be a top-five pick in April's NFL Draft.

"Everybody has him in the top ten," Lande said. "He’s a ball-hawking safety that can come up and hit and tackle. He’s the real deal. I wouldn’t be shocked if Detroit — if there’s no elite pass-rusher there — Detroit at No. 5 may take him. He’s really good." A first-team All-Big 12 pick in both 2011 and 2012, Vaccaro amassed 107 tackles as a senior and recorded five career interceptions.

That would be nuts. Vaccaro might be a top 5 safety, but not a top 5 pick.

Russ Lande said it, which guarantees what happens isnt what he says. Russ Lande said that Luke Kuechly would vastly improve a teams pass rush... he's that bad. He just says stuff just to say it. He's an idiot. He's like The Onion of the scouting world.

He's looking like a 3-4 DE at the Senior Bowl. Not a good fit for our team.


He is looking like a second round pick

Too bad he doesn't use what's at his disposal. He is trash.

The National Football Post has been pretty bad the last few years I've been following them.

Jesse Williams is a freaking monster. Im jealous of teams that will actually consider drafting him. He is seriously pushing Star Lotulelei for my #1 DT. He's already my #1 NT.

Haven't watched the senior bowl but I keep reading Ansah had a good game.

I think he did alright. He used his spin a lot, and used a swim on a TE to almost get a sack (got beat by .1 seconds), used a rip a lot more than normal (which is good). He deflected at least 1 pass that I remember and was very good against the run. My favorite part was that he tackled Denard in open field.

The DE from Georgia looked very good. Like, pushing for a 2nd round pick good with an outside shot at the 1st (probably a 3rd rounder at this point).

He still lost stock from the whole week. He used same moves repeatedly and was stoned a lot.

He needs a larger diversity of ways to get to QB.

He was slow to backfield if he got thrown off. He did not have much speed unless straight-line


I will admit he has a ton of potential and if there in round 2 they better jump on him

E.J. Manuel and Cornelius Washington did way more than I expected. Manuel actually put touch on his throws and Washington looked like he could develop into a very nice DE or OLB. Manuel has the arm, and is a very good athlete, but his accuracy, touch, mechanics, footwork, etc. all seem poor. Atleast today he showed he has the ability to place a ball in the corner of the endzone from 20-ish yards out that only his receiver can catch. Washington looks like he can be a fine pass rusher if he can develop a good move or 2. He was very fast off the ball and pursued fairly well. Definitely a guy who could rise up late.
