Because he can cover TE's, RB's and slot receivers while playing in the box and still be solid in run support. Barron IMO is better in run support and has higher football IQ in general, but Vaccaro's ability in coverage is better. Thats why people have him so high, now-a-days safeties who can cover are a neccessity IMO. I was not high on Vaccaro heading into the offseason, nor for most of the pre-draft hoopla, but he has grown on me recently. Neither of whom do I believe however are top 10 caliber safeties.
