First Joe Reedy Mock Draft Selects Texas Safety Kenny Vaccaro

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

The Cincinnati Bengals beat man Joe Reedy released his first mock draft of the season.

Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer recently wrote that safety remains the team's biggest need, either addressed through the NFL draft or free agency. Believing that the draft is the most likely route, writes that in "most years, taking a safety at No. 21 overall would be considered a stretch, but this year’s class is considered to be one of the best in awhile."

And he remained loyal to that perspective.

Doing his first mock draft following the 2013 NFL National Scouting Combine, the Bengals beat man tabbed safety Kenny Vaccaro with the No. 21 overall pick.

Vaccaro earned second-team All-Conference honors during his senior season, generating 92 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes defensed. Most praise his strength and athleticism combination, though some note that his coverages have primarily been man and largely within the defensive box.
