Texas Longhorns safety Kenny Vaccaro is the top safety prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft class and the belief is that he could be off the board as early as No. 10 to the Tennessee Titans. If Vaccaro makes it past the Titans, the next potential landing spot would be the Miami Dolphins and they are doing their research on the Texas product.
According to an ESPN.com report, the Dolphins have a pre-draft visit set up with Vaccaro.
The Dolphins currently have Reshad Jones and recently re-signed Chris Clemons penciled in as the team’s starting safeties, but Vaccaro could provide an upgrade and more playmaking ability to the team’s secondary.
An added bonus with Vaccaro’s skill set is his ability to line up against the opponent’s slot receiver.
If Miami is looking to add a younger option to the mix in their secondary, they can’t go wrong with Vaccaro, who has an incredibly high ceiling and the talent to start as a rookie.
Vaccaro appears to be a top twenty lock.
