A cool comparison.
Good call on Reid. He is indeed more like Clark than like Polamalu. I had not thought if it that way. Thus, here are my tiered safety pairings:

1. Elam/Vaccaro... and Swearinger

2. Elam/Vaccaro... and Reid

3. Elam/Vaccaro... and Rambo/Williams

4. Elam/Vaccaro... and (insert R5 safety)
