Texas’ Vaccaro can be used in every-downs role

INDIANAPOLIS–Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro is an ideal fit in today’s style of football. Vaccaro can be used in several roles, which means he’s an every-downs defensive back.

“I can play both safeties, nickel, dime and, in some instances, I can play corner,” Vaccaro told reporters at the scouting combine on Sunday.

At 6-0, 215, Vaccaro is big enough to support against the run and his 4.5 speed gives him the range to be a dependable back-end coverage guy. There are few red flags on Vaccaro, which has him ticketed for the first round of this year’s draft.

“Texas is in a pass-happy conference. I play in space,” he said. “I think I can bring a lot to a team, being able to play a lot of positions.”

Vaccaro and LSU free safety Eric Reid are considered to be the top two safeties in this year’s draft.
