You knew this one was coming.
Vaccaro is the player to watch simply given his draft position. He went full force against the Chiefs and had an outstanding game, leading the team in tackles with six.
Again, statistics are not everything. Vaccaro showed good range in a multitude of positions and played both the run and pass well. He’s going to see plenty of action during the regular season either way, but keep a very close eye on him to see how he comes along.
There could be a superstar in the making.
