Diggs, Okafor, Edmond and Jeffcoat (when he still was fit) all were playing better football than vaccaro
If you think Edmond played good football this year, you were watching a different Texas team. He was horrendously bad and they need him to improve or he'll be replaced. Diggs wasn't spectacular either - he got abused in coverage several times and missed several tackles as well. He at least still showed some heart. Vaccaro is very solid and can play a variety of schemes and line up all over the field. It's hard to judge because the defense was atrocious this year - worst all time - but Vaccaro showcased a lot of translatable skills and was one of the few players who consistently brought it every down every game. He was the only player in the back seven who could be trusted to attack the ballcarrier and bring him down.
