Tyler Vaughns WR USC Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • A savvy, natural pass-catcher with reliable hands and very good focus. Snatches the ball out of the air and shows the concentration to make acrobatic catches look easy.
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't have the size to consistently win on the outside, but can be productive working the middle of the field and as a return man.
  • Not a burner or consistent vertical threat. Has a lanky frame and will be overmatched physically by most cornerbacks in the NFL. Needs to be more competitive in tight coverage.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
