What about trading up for FS Kenny Vaccaro

Originally posted by CorvaNinerFan:
I seriously doubt Harbaalke would see the value trading up for a S...historically, they just don't take one that early. Last time they did was '92, when they drafted Dana Hall. Also have to remember, both Trent Robinson and Michael Thomas will be competing for FS, too. It's not like the cupboard's bare. I think Baalke's stands pat at #31, where I'd love to see him draft Sly Williams, a big, versatile DL who'd provide Fangio some quality depth inside and out. S could be the position at #34.

The history of Baalke and Harbaugh doesn't go back to '92, it goes back to 2011. They've had 2 1st round picks, and didn't use either on a safety. They also didn't use one on DL, CB, RB, etc. With only 2 picks, there will be quite a few positions they weren't going to address. Plus, the team had different needs.
I like David Amerson (highly recruited safety when in high school) in the early 2nd. Yes, I know he played CB in college, but so did Goldson...but they have similar height (6'2"), build and the ability to make plays on the ball. IMO, Amerson and Phillip Thomas are the closest thing to a ball-hawking safety that this draft has to offer.

Plus we already have Trenton Robinson.

As far as the topic, more and more I say don't because of this deep S class. Cyprien, Elam, Reid, both Thomas's, Rambo, etc. One of these foos will be ours and can be had in the second n third rounds AND their skill set and talent are not that far off from ea other. I would rate Cypien just ahead of Reid and Elam, but not by much.

If we trade up, I would hope it would be for Star or Richardson as both have incredible motors and are starters from day one especially with Star being able to play anywhere on the DL.

But don't trade up for Vaccarro.

What's up with Kenny Vaccaro's slow ass 40 yard dash doe? Was he injured or something? Looks much faster on tape..
I haven't seen anything more than highlight film on this guy. How does he compare with Eric Berry, Mark Barron, Earl Thomas, and the like?

The best safety, Earl Thomas says
Even though I've toyed with the idea before, I don't think we should.. Would cost too much to trade up and he's not an elite safety IMO

I don't think any safeties this year are of that caliber

My thoughts exactly. He got beat a few times this year when qbs could hit over top of him.
He is my 4-5 ranked safety.
Why isn't anyone talking TJ McDonald? Yeah our last usc safety was a failure but McDonald would be a good pick in the mid rounds.
