17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kenny Vaccaro FS (Texas)

Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu are not getting any younger, and Pittsburgh needs to begin with a legitimate “transition strategy” at both Safety positions. If the Steelers do look for a Safety early, they might be wise to target the talented Kenny Vaccaro (6’1″ 218 lbs.) to begin the re-building process in their Secondary. Vaccaro was the Longhorns’ leading Tackler last year (104) and added 4.0 TFL’s, 2 Forced Fumbles, and 2 Interceptions to his 2012 stat line. A two-and-a-half year starter at Texas (31 Starts, 50 Games), the physical Vaccaro played both Free and Strong Safety during his collegiate career and would be a welcome addition to any Safety-needy team like the Steelers.
I love Elam... but, Vaccaro is 1-a.
