2013 NFL Draft: Dallas Cowboys Doing Their Homework, Working Out Safety Kenny Vaccaro

Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports

If you’re a fan on the Dallas Cowboys, you know the team is in need of help at the safety position. No matter what you think of Barry Church, or what the Cowboys think of Matt Johnson, the release of Gerald Sensabaugh has left the team short at safety. Luckily for Cowboys fans, the team also recognizes their need for safety help and it could be coming through the draft.

The Cowboys will be checking out Texas Longhorns safety, Kenny Vaccaro, out tomorrow in a private workout. Vaccaro is the highest ranked safety on almost every draft expert’s boards and would be a welcomed addition to the Cowboys. Vaccaro has the size, strength, athleticism and speed to be a really good player. He’s smart, plays with aggression and his instincts are the best in this safety class, so it’s no wonder the Cowboys are taking a good look at him.

By checking him out in private the Cowboys can get a better read on just how good Vaccaro can be and just how good of a fit he’d make with the Cowboys. These workouts are sometimes camouflage a team’s actual interest in a player but it seems pretty obvious that Dallas has a need at safety and their interest in Vaccaro is legit.

It’s a good move by the Cowboys to do their homework on any potential draft pick and working out a player like Vaccaro is a smart decision. Tomorrow the Cowboys could be working out their safety of the future and this private session could go a long way in determining if Vaccaro is the answer to Dallas’ problems at the position.
