Final Grade

Strengths 

For a guy Vaughn's size, he is pretty athletic and it is shown through how elusive and explosive he can be when the ball is in his hands. Vaughn has good lateral agility for a guy his size. Vaughn has good awareness and when he sees an opportunity he will take it and it helps that he is smooth with the way he cuts. Vaughn has strong ball security as he has had little turnovers in his career. Vaughn is a good pass catcher as he has great hands, is a smooth route runner, has the ability to create space and can create. Showcases a strong level of being competitive and having strong football intelligence. Vaughn also has no durability concerns.

Weaknessess

His contact balance is inconsistent as there are moments he goes down in contact immediately and others where he does not due to his small size avoiding defenders. He can be fast, but does not get to Top End Speed. Due to his size, he does not do a great job with his bad level, but does have solid Leg Drive. Vaughn is definitely a liability as a blocker as he struggles as a lead blocker, blocking in space, and as a pass protector. A big issue is his poor blocking technique and while he is willing to block as a chip blocker, he has struggled with showcasing effort to block.

If I were to describe this section with Vaughn in one word it would be "Liability". Vaughn is a terrible blocker and arguably one of the worst running back blockers in this draft class. He struggles as a lead blocker, blocking in space, and as a pass protector. He has poor blocking technique and while he has shown effort and willing to block as a chip blocker, he has struggled doing that as well.
