Vinnie Sunseri: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)We're pretty big fans of Sunseri, so his strong showing at the pro day gives a nice boost to a safety class that already boasted an encouraging amount of talent. At 5-foot-11 and around 210 pounds, Sunseri confirmed Tuesday that he has the combination of size and athleticism to take on the tasks traditionally assigned to both free and strong safeties. Sunseri possesses strong football bloodlines, as his brother Tino is a CFL quarterback and his father Sal is a former All-American linebacker for Pittsburgh and current defensive ends coach for Florida State. Sunseri is polished and shows a standout ability to identify plays and pursue effectively. We see some Eric Weddle in him and would like him as a third-round pick despite his relatively recent ACL tear.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sunseri, who was drafted by the Saints in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, is a talented safety out of Alabama. Sunseri, however, will need to prove that he is fully recovered from an ACL tear suffered last October in order to see action behind Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro in his rookie year in New Orleans.
