The safety rankings are all over the map. Vacarro might have the most analysts ranking him as the top safety; however, it is not close to a consensus from what I've seen.
As a matter of fact, there were a lot of people who said that DeCastro was a top 5 player coming out but that is here nor there.
I think the thing you can't account for is the quality of talent in each draft. For example, lets say that Barker is the top rated QB in this draft, would he have been in the top 5 last year? I don't know. You can't really use that as proof of how good Warmack is IMO because the talent levels from draft to draft is fluid. Again, I have not seen anybody say that Warmack is the highest rated OG in 10 years, which is why I made the comment originally.
As far as Vacarro goes, I agree. I think that this is what I basically said in my earlier post.
