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)
