Projecting running backs from college to the pros is a very difficult task, particularly attempting to predict how one will perform in his rookie season. Vaughn was productive in college, particularly in his last two seasons at Vanderbilt. He rushed for over 1,000 yards in both seasons, in the challenging SEC, and scored 12 times in 2018 and 9 times 2019. In those seasons he had 41 receptions as well, showing he has the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

However, beyond these stats we have no clue about how successful he will be in the NFL. He appears to be an average athlete who does not dominate opponents physically. Nothing pops off the screen when you watch his tape, although he is generally skilled at all the major facets of the position. It is unlikely in my opinion that he becomes the starter as a rookie, and that position is strengthened since we have not had an offseason program due to Covid-19. It seems he will be at a significant disadvantage compared to the other backs on the team, who have been working in the system already for a year or more.

It is certainly possible he wows the coaches in practice and gets early chances, but at his current price in the 7th round, I would avoid him like the plague. The same front office that drafted him also drafted Jones, and seems intent on keeping him around. Vaughn may become a stud in the NFL, but it is likely that his chances will be limited in his rookie season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Ke'Shawn Vaughn looking at kick return duties in Week 1
Arians comments on rookie RB
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 21, 10:46 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Asked about how rookie RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn would be ready to contribute in Week 1, Arians said it could be as a kick returner. Return jobs still wide open, and he said due to touchbacks, punt returner is probably the more important job. Antoine Winfield is an option there. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Not the best comment if you've been a Vaughn truther this off-season. The rookie's path to playing time has been getting narrower ever since LeSean McCoy was brought in at the end of July. Ronald Jones appears to be the back to own in Tampa Bay.

Injury Ke'Shawn Vaughn lands on COVID-19 list
Bucs rookie RB expected to have big role in 2020

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs rookie RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn is on the Reserve/COVID19 list as submitted to the NFL today. It means Vaughn either tested positive for COVID19 or has been in close contact with an infected person. Teams are not permitted to disclose whether a player is in quarantine or have tested positive. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We'll be seeing more and more of these reports as player begin receiving their test results. Stroud does go on to mention that "Vaughn is expected to have a big role in the Bucs offense with RB Ronald Jones but this will further delay his development".
