You sir, are crazy. None of the Safeties in this class pose as much value as that trade. We'd get multiple long-term starters in multiple spots rather than focusing on one overrated Safety prospect.

Well lets be honest, that trade will never happen and Vaccaro is a top prospect in this draft at a premium position and tbh I feel is a weak position in this draft.


This is one of the deepest Safety classes the draft has had in close to a decade. It's very deep. You'll find starters into the 4th and possibly 5th round in this draft. This draft is deep at interior offensive linemen (C, OG), defensive tackle (NT, UT and DT), and Safety (FS, SS). If we play our cards right, we could fill a huge number of holes this year; holes which have existed for a decade. If we're able to trade down like ninja's scenario (or something similar), we'd be able to net two starting OGs, a starting C, a starting DT, and a starting Safety in the first 4 rounds. Vacarro cannot and will not compensate for that kind of long term depth, nor would he improve the performance of our current abomination of an o-line. The least important position on a defense - even at a need position - is not worth that much compared to the compensation we'd get by trading down. Not remotely.

First, it won't take that much for teams to move up 2 or 3 spots. Remmber the Boys only gave up a 2nd-round pick to move from 14 to 6 last year. At most, it will take a 3rd-round pick for team to go from 21 to 18.

That said, if those deals were on the table, you definitely make the trades since a lot players in the 15 to 30 range are quite comparable and the Boys have plenty of needs.
the first trade was for a 4 and a 5 (Cinci actually wins the points battle) and the second trade was for a 5th and a 6th (we won the points battle by a couple)...

I agree with Plan regarding Vacarro. I still fail to see the hype surrounding this guy.

If I knew I could wait and get Cooper, then yeah, I would go ahead and make those trades. Otherwise, I might just stay put and take the top guy on my board. I'd even like to see us package some of those late round picks and get back up in the 3rd. I think there will be a lot of value picks in the 3rd-4th rounds of the draft this year

I misspoke this draft is very weak at the FS position, there are plenty of SS in this draft that could fight for a starting position in training camp. There is essentially Kenny Vaccaro and Jonathan Cyprien other than that I am questionable on any other Safety competing for a starting job at FS. I would be willing to play Elam, Reid, Rambo, Wilcox all at SS. I also believe Vaccaro is a top 5 prospect in this draft.

Go check out Josh Evans, as a late round prospect.

You realize those are a 4th, two 5ths, amd a 6th... what long term starters are you gettinf?


With the o-line and Safety classes being as deep as they are, starters can be found in the 4th and 5th rounds, MH. I thought that my later statements about the depths of the areas where we need help in explained that well enough.

The drafts strengths and depth match up almost perfectly with our needs, to me that signals alot of trade backs, leading to players we need falling into our laps.

I would love to know who you think we would get in the 5th amd 6th rounds to be long term starters - and you of all people should know we dont hit on those late round picks - were better off tradinf them all for 7th round picks and drafting all DL

Or using them as leverage to trade into the higher rounds. More picks = more options.
