3. Kenny Vaccaro
Despite his late addition to the team in 2018, S Kenny Vaccaro has been a pleasant surprise for the Titans. For those of you that need a refresher, Vaccaro signed in response to starting strong safety — at the time — Johnathan Cyprien‘s season-ending torn ACL.
The former first-round pick had fallen out of favor in New Orleans and signed a measly one-year, $1.5 million prove-it-deal with the Titans.
Initially thought to be a stopgap until Cyprien’s return, Vaccaro earned himself an extension following 13 games in 2018 in which he proved to be a vital part of an emerging secondary.
Not the flashiest of players, Vaccaro just does his job well. Sometimes it can be that simple.
Vaccaro is the enforcer in a — when healthy — elite secondary. Status by association rises the former Texas Longhorn to number three on this list, even with a short tenure within the decade.
