Russ Lande believes Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro could see his stick rise tremendously in the coming months, and will be a top-5 pick when April comes around. Vaccaro has been projected to the Bengals in many mock draft at pick #21, and most scouts believe he is the draft’s top safety prospect

Tony Pauline believes that BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is a definite mid-first round choice and should be selected before pick #18. This comes after registered 3.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and one pass breakup during the Senior Bowl.  When asked who is the highest ranked on his board between LSU’s Sam Montgomery, Ansah, or Oregon’s Dion Jordan, former NFL scout Bryan Broaddus responded with Ansah.
