Saints News, 4/6/16: Su'a Cravens Draws Vaccaro Comparisons

New, comments

After visiting the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, former USC SS Su'a Cravens drew early comparisons to Saints' SS Kenny Vaccaro. This indicates that he is strong covering in the slot and often plays in the box as a linebacker to help the run, furthering the idea that Cravens may be converted to an LB / Nickel CB upon being drafted.
