Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Flashes initial burst and good lateral quickness to sidestep defenders or bounce runs outside with very good foot quickness. Displays very good feel as an inside and outside runner with above average vision to make sharp cuts - good patience· and footwork to pick through defenses.
  • He’s decisive once Vaughn locates a hole and gets through quickly. His ability to accelerate and his good top-end speed allow him to outrun angles, and he has the quickness and lateral agility to make defenders miss in space.
  • His competitiveness and knack for high-pointing the ball allow him to play bigger than his size.
  • Vaughn is elite as a receiver. He runs routes as well as most receivers and has natural hands, snatching the ball away from his body.
  • Has the feet and feel running between the tackles and in the open field. Vaughn has very good vision and patience to pick through defenses.
  • Once he plants his foot, he’s explosive moving upfield, and his 0-to-60 acceleration is enough to catch defenses off-guard.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s limited to cut blocks when it comes to blitz pickups.
  • Vaughn doesn’t offer a ton of wiggle, and in college, Vaughn often sought out contact rather than avoiding it.
  • Size is an obvious issue. he will never be able to do anything between the tackles, and he will likely be limited to a lot of gadget plays like fly sweeps.
