Vaccaro is widely-viewed as the draft’s top safety, and will unlikely be on the board when the Bengals make their first selection at pick #21. But with two second-rounders, perhaps they’ll look to move up in order to secure his services. With the Bengals’ most glaring hole at safety, this could be a year where they actually give up picks to move up. Normally, Mike Brown is only willing to move down and acquire extra picks.
In 2011, as a junior, Vaccaro posted 82 tackles, eight tackles-for-loss, two sacks, eight passes broken up, and two interceptions. In 2012, he registering 107 tackles and forced five turnovers (two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery).
ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper actually believes Vaccro’s stock is falling due to his poor 40-time, and he could slip into the 20s.
