Most mock drafts — including our own — have Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro going off the board somewhere in the high teens or low twenties. But Vaccaro’s draft stock may be rising a little higher than that.
The Dolphins, owners of the No. 12 overall pick, have scheduled a visit with Vaccaro, ESPN.com reports.
An All-American at Texas as a senior, Vaccaro is considered by just about everyone to be the best safety in this year’s draft. He’s considered a versatile player who plays well against the run near the line of scrimmage and is strong in coverage.
The Dolphins’ starting safeties at the moment are Reshad Jones and Chris Clemons. Vaccaro is a player with the talent to start as a rookie. Perhaps in Miami.
