Vaughn A Former Lovie Back

April 24th, 2020

“Simple as that.”

Joe isn’t sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing for new Bucs running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn.

Vaughn originally played college football at Illinois for an atrocious coach and lesser human by the name of Tim Beckman. This clown got himself fired and he was so awful he almost makes Lovie Smith look good.

But Vaughn didn’t stick around to finish his college days in Champaign under Lovie, despite leading the Illini with 723 yards and six touchdowns as a freshman in just five starts..

After one season of tolerating Lovie where he had just 60 carries in 11 games, Vaughn had enough and transferred to Vanderbilt.

Even though Vaughn was a sprinter in high school, he’s not overly fast, posting a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash.

Per Lance Zierlein of, some of Vaughn’s weaknesses are vision, avoiding contact and lack of acceleration and burst.

But apparently he can pass block. Oh, good!

With Vaughn on board, that makes three players in three picks in the 2020 draft that started their careers in the Big Ten.

    I think this guy had a very poor Oline….

    I found this analysis interesting:

    Ironically, Vaughn’s collegiate experience playing behind such a mediocre offensive line has only increased his value as an NFL prospect. While it may have taken a toll on his overall numbers, he’s had practice finding smaller holes in a pro-level defense. For reference, former Georgia Bulldog D’Andre Swift—a top-ranked running back in the 2020 Draft—averaged 6.6 yards per carry throughout his career in the SEC. According to Pro Football Focus, Georgia’s offensive line ranked second in the FBS last season, finishing with the fifth-best run-blocking grade. Vaughn, on the other hand, averaged 6.4 yards per carry in his SEC career. Vanderbilt’s line ranked 128 out of 130 FBS teams, with the lowest run-blocking grade in the country.

    It couldn’t have been easy to run behind an offensive line that caved in on him almost every play, but it prepared Vaughn for the next level. He’s refined his skillset to become an elite one-cut runner; Vaughn has great vision running between the tackles, allowing him to find the smallest of holes, take his first step in stride and turn on the jets to get upfield.

    You don’t sound very excited Joe.

  3. Joe Says:


    Yet a guy the Bucs passed on had superior numbers behind a totally trash offensive line. And he could catch.

  4. Joe Says:

    You don’t sound very excited Joe.

    Depressed as hell.

    Nice post as always TBBF. Stay Safe! Your Governor is an Idiot.

  6. Jeagan1999 Says:

    This kid has a solid 6th round Draft grade….so naturally Licht selects him 3 rounds too early.

    Coulda had Dobbins….a true 2,000 yds from scrimmage type player….instead, we got a guy who they probably could’ve gotten late on Day 3. Unbefreakinleivable!

  7. SB Says:

    We will get through it Joe. They know a bit more than we do I think.

  8. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    MEATHEAD trying to be cute. We will win this year DESPITE Licht and his garbage drafting.

  9. tbbucs3 Says:

    “They know a bit more than we do I think”

    Based on Lichts drafting history, im not sure about that.

  10. Tom S. Says:

    Drafting RB’s who were HS All Stars in 2014 when it’s 2020 is not usually a recipe for success. Old man Devonta Freeman has already had an NFL career and he just turned 28. This guy is turning 23.

  11. DBS Says:

    If you don’t like it. To damn bad ain’t it?

  12. SB Says:

    I mean……….we are “All IN” with Brady and Gronk aren’t we?
    Team Glazier has to have asked Brady what RB he would want!!!
    Sure Brady was ok with this pick.

  13. Robert James Says:

    hes not going to be better than Barber… oh well, cant fill every need but rb has been a big need 4 long time

  14. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    People will say whiners, blah blah blaH BUT WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BLOW THIS THING OUTTA THE WATER AND PFFFFFFF. NOT IMPRESSED LICHT, NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL. Could’ve had dobbins and like 4 or more different safeties here. Oh well, go Bucs

  15. tvan101 Says:

    Why didn’t we take Zack Moss out of Utah who is from Florida, it was an easy pick.

  16. DBS Says:

    You b!tched for a RB they got one. Maybe not YOUR choice but to bad!

  17. AwShbucs Says:

    God awful pick. Hate to admit it but Steve is right, Jason Licht and his staff suck at evaluating running backs.

  18. Wstrfld23 Says:

    Cant get past the fact that they passed on Cam for a safety.

  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Joe……are you talking about Akers?……because that was in the 2nd round…..we chose a Safety instead of a RB… it would be unfair to compare a 3rd round pick to someone who was there in the 2nd…..

  20. DBS Says:

    And if He moved up to get him YOU WOULD HAVE B!TCHED!!!

  21. Soggy Says:

    Every drafted guy looks different in the NFL, some better and some worse, let it play out a few games before freaking out, might be exactly what our bucs need.

  22. tvan101 Says:

    DBS Unfortunately our choice is often better than Licht’s.

  23. AwShbucs Says:

    Zack Moss out of Utah has tape and traits eerily reminiscent of Kareem Hunt and they opt for this bozo. Not to mention it’s been reported that the jags contacted us about Fournette.

    Apparently this offense couldnt use a do everything bruiser coming off the best year of his career still on his rookie deal.

  24. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Now….if you want to compare Vaughn to Moss……that’s a relevant comparison because Moss was there when we picked Vaughn in the 3rd…..

    So….have at that comparison….

  25. Pewter Power Says:

    Sounds like wanted a guy to replace Rojo and that is what people are upset about. BA is honest if nothing else and everyone let’s mock drafts and scouts tell you what Bucs should do when the head coach already said he would invest high draft picks on the position. I’m rooting for rojo and more concerned about the first two picks being hits.

  26. ModHairKen Says:

    If he produced behind that scandal of an offensive line, he will thrive in the NFL. None of that jerky jerky Charles Sims running style. If he hits the whole, he’s getting yards.

  27. Dirks Great Granpappy Says:

    Agree w tvan. This guy has some speed clearly by outrunning many defenders in the sec. looks like he can catch. Didn’t see much wiggle or vision except a few highlights here or there.

  28. rrsrq Says:

    Now I know why we passed on Moss, he’s from Miami originally and JL has never drafted a player from south of Tallahassee (VH3 doesn’t count). Because he is from Nebraska, he still holds a grudge.

  29. Bird Says:

    We ll see but bucs could have gotten same guy in round 5 or 6

  30. Robert James Says:

    I am w Joe… totally depressed. Damn, how long has this been a huge hole and we try to fill at the dollar tree.

    His carries went down under lovie so he transferred to Vandi

    So maybe thats a good sign

  39. tvan101 Says:

    DBS Just saying when it comes to running back Licht doesn’t draft RB high which is what the fans have been correctly wishing for for years.

  40. Rod Munch Says:

    His highlights at Illinois are 100x more impressive than Vanderbilt, mainly because he the Vanderbilt highlights are him just running through huge holes. Sort of like watching Marlon Mack highlights, when the Colts drafted him, fans went and watched his highlights, and saw only the latest stuff, which was him running through huge holes because Flowers was there – but if you went back a couple of years, you saw a guy who could do everything and didn’t have those huge holes. This is sort of like that.

    I didn’t want a RB, told you guys we didn’t need one, could get a cheap one via FA or trade after the draft, but the more I watch this guy, the more I like him. Just don’t know how he works with Ronnie, they’re similar types of players.

  41. Buczilla Says:

    I’m depressed too Joes. Getting Wirfs was fantastic, but it’s been a very disappointing second day of the draft. Maybe we are planning on trading for Fournette or kicking the tires on Devonta Freeman?

  42. tbbucs3 Says:

    Its about time we get more Lovie on this football team!!

    This is what we needed the whole time, more Lovie ball.

  43. SB Says:

    What Jersey was it that you wanted?
    I tried to get out when JW3 was suspended but ………He bombed all the way

  44. Kalind Says:

    There’s a guy out there as a FA I think we all should consider.

    Chris Thompson. That cat is exactly the type of guy Brady wants. At this point he’ll practically be free. Sign him tomorrow.

  45. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Don’t worry Joe…….Vaughn will be at least 3rd on the depth chart behind Rojo & Dare…….what’s your problem?…..>We GOOD!!!

  46. SB Says:

    I see what you just did there TBBF

  47. Wstrfld23 Says:

    Vaughn has some nice film.

  48. Ninety9buc Says:


    First of all, this guy has the game speed Cam Akers wish he had. 1 year from now there will be thousands of Vaughn Jerseys in Ray Jay. The only reason Vaughn ever gets caught from behind is because he is soo confident in his speed, he thinks he has already won! YOU TUBE his highlights. He stops running when he feels like he beat his defenders. This can definitely be coached out of him.

    This guy played in both the Big 10 and SEC!!
    Breaks tackles and runs faster then anyone on the field when it matters! Has soft hands and thinks he can score every time he touches the ball, and usually does.

    It is his diversity that makes him solid!!

    Joe, record my post. You know I will.
    Future pro bowler. You heard it here 1st!!

    Go Bucs!!!

  49. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Don’t let your crew listen to AOC……she’ll have them wanting to get paid for not working…..

  50. Coburn Says:

    It’s amazing how dramatic people get. You think GMs grades are that different that we picked him in 3rd and and everyone else would wait til 6th? Highly doubt it. You guys can’t possibly know every football player. Highlights look great

  51. Dude Says:

    You guys will cry if he picked who you wanted. Baby

  52. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Man this is terrific we are going to get a full off season about Joe complaining about the rushing attack we haven’t seen anything of yet.


    Anyway now Joe about your eternal depression that we don’t blow premium picks on running backs. It was much more important to get more players for the defensive side of the ball in round 2. Also having Wirfs will help this run game better then any individual running back would have.

  53. AwShbucs Says:


    Put the bottle down bud. Dude is a nothing special player. Sure he can hit the hole and get north and south and has decent balance through contact, but that’s pretty much it. He doesnt have any elusiveness or power to his game at all really.

    Zack Moss fell into our laps and we blew it.

  54. Jeagan1999 Says:

    This could’ve been the Bucs draft thru 3 rounds….

    1. Wirfs….Man-beast and top 3 OT to protect Brady (A+)
    2. JK Dobbins….explosive runner, good receiver, a true 3down bell cow back (A+)
    3. Jacob Eason…Tall, strong armed QB who can make all the NFL throws, and who now gets to learn from a Hall of Fame signal caller for 2 years. (A)

    That COULD HAVE BEEN our draft so far.

  55. SB Says:

    @ Tampabaybucfan I don’t know what AOC is.
    I am considered “essential” so I am still working every day.
    But I work with my wife only so no need for ‘social distancing’ here thank God!

  56. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I just cant believe we passed on the UTAH Running Back Moss, for this guy.

  57. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Vanderbilt’s line ranked 128 out of 130 FBS teams, with the lowest run-blocking grade in the country.

    This should not be ignored…….it certainly is a factor.


  58. Rob in Land O Lakes Says:

    On your way to the Skyway, please everyone consider this.

    1. The Bucs obtained a terrific OT and S in the first two rounds;
    2. Zach Moss racked up big numbers against average PAC-12 competition. He did have flashes but totally disappeared in the bowl game against Texas;
    3. Vaughn, racked up big numbers on an average team in the SEC, playing teams that were most likely better than Vandy and playing from behind.;
    4. Vaughn catches the ball. Brady can squeeze every once of ability from a player like this. Remain calm folks.

  59. SB Says:


  60. David Says:

    Complaining about not taking Dobbins or Akers in round two and grabbing a 5‘9“ safety is valid.
    Complaining about taking VaUgh over Moss is ridiculous. They’re both third or fourth round backs, it’s a crapshoot.
    Vaughn is explosive, doesn’t dance around and can catch.

  61. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Does anyone know the name of the monitor
    both Jason & Bruce used

  62. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Whats good brotha?/

  63. Rod Munch Says:

    Ninety9buc – Yeah, I don’t see why people are complaining. They whine and whine and whine about wanting a RB, they get one, then they just whine some more.

  64. David Says:

    Yes! And the competition he played against in the SEC with a poor o line… impressive numbers.
    Who did Moss play?

  65. Rod Munch Says:

    LUVMYBUCS – It’s a Microsoft Studio – it’s a full computer, but you can pull it down to write/draw on it like a drawing pad. It’s a pretty cool piece of tech, but very expensive.

  66. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    So…..versus LSU (National Champions)….2019

    Vaughn carried 20 times for 130 yards with 2 TDs……a 6.5 avg

    That doesn’t look too bad to me……maybe there is something under the hood!!!

  67. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Surface Studio 2?

  68. Rod Munch Says:

    For what it’s worth, he looks like Mark Ingram – and is almost identical size.

  69. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    thank u

  70. Ivan The Insider Says:

    This kid could turn out to be a DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH.

    Not very fast? This kid is a BURNER. 4.51 is still fast. Wasn’t it Kamara that ran a 4.6? You can tell from his highlights he PLAYS FAST.

    Vanderbilt SUCKED. Their O-Line SUCKED. This kid was ripping off 40-50+ runs against TOP SEC TEAMS. He had some big runs against LSU, the National Champion.

  71. Rod Munch Says:

    LUVMYBUCS – Hard to tell, the Studio and Studio 2 look basically identical.

  72. Ivan The Insider Says:

    * 40-50+ yard runs I meant.

  73. LUVMYBUCS Says:


  74. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    AOC is…..

    alexandria ocasio-cortez The controversial congresswoman from NY……

  75. Rod Munch Says:

    Ivan – From the highlights, he does look fast – but 4.51 for a RB actually is pretty fast. Most modern RB’s are like 4.6. He did get chased down from behind on some plays, but others he went all the way. I wouldn’t think he’s a breakaway guy at the NFL level, but who cares, but he will get big chunks it looks like.

    Also Ronnie is a breakaway guy, he has 4.4 speed, so for those that think speed is everything, there you go.

    But I will say his Vanderbilt highlights are him running through giant holes, maybe overall their line was bad, but on his highlight plays they’re hard to take anything away from since the holes are so big.

  76. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    For all of those who are depressed at our running back choice (especially Joe)

    I’ve got two words for you.

    Dare Ogunbowale

    …Vaughn, on the other hand, averaged 6.4 yards per carry in his SEC career. Vanderbilt’s line ranked 128 out of 130 FBS teams, with the lowest run-blocking grade in the country.

    This may seem misleading to some but for reference last year Vaughn averaged 5.2 yards per carry not 6.4. He averaged 7.9 in 2018 and I am not sure where the O line rank for Vandy was in 2018.

  78. CharlieV Says:

    should the kid be curcified because he was recuited by lovie or deserted because lovie? i’m all in if he left illinoise because of lovie! simple as that ..

  79. Delusional Intelligence Says:

    Pick has me befuddled. No issue with a RB, just my opinion there were better prospects available. Hopefully, we can talk a Devonta Freeman or Carlos Hyde to come play for less than market value.

  80. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Damn, SB, you’re an NFL GM now? I guess you’re qualified to criticize? We all bow down to your draft knowledge. I thought you were better than the “I’m a GM and I know better” crowd. 🤦‍♂️

  81. Rod Munch Says:

    Tampabaybucfan – Dare is not going to be the 3rd down back, there’s a ton of FA’s available, they’ll sign for veteran minimum. Lots of options but have to be able to see how healthy they are, which we can’t do now.

  82. Anonymous Says:

    Rod Munch,

    Who in the world is “Ronnie”? There are no players on the Bucs roster that are called Ronnie. Ronald Jones certainly doesn’t go by that name.

  83. Ivan The Insider Says:

    Rod Munch,

    Who in the world is this “Ronnie” you speak of? There’s not a single player on the Bucs roster that goes by Ronnie.

  84. SOEbuc Says:

    Joe I think you would know they weren’t gonna have RoJo riding the bench all year and get a three down back in the second (Winfield was a great pick). We needed a pass catching, pass defending RB. THAT IS WHAT TOMMY NEEDS.. With the best passing offense this guy will get you those short yardage first downs and can breakout if he finds a hole.

  85. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    North/South runner.. Good power, good blocking, decent hands with no shake or route ability at all…. Will be good on short yardage situations and red zone…. He’s basically a Peyton Barber with a better chance to break a 20 yard run… I think a pretty solid pick considering nobody is giving rojo enough credit …. He broke plenty of runs that were called back, he was only used in the first 2 quarters before the defense was worn down, I don’t think I EVER saw him drop a pass so not sure where the hands problem rumor comes from… He was a solid back that didn’t get enough carries! He runs hard and fast and makes defense pay for every hit and has a full bag of jukes and spins that I don’t think we’ve come close to seeing yet!!!…. They’ll be fine at running back

  86. Doctor_Berto Says:

    This is a great draft. Dobbins and Akers don’t make near the impact that Winfield does. Plus, we just need a complement to ROJO, not a full time back. This is one of the better drafts IMO

  87. Ivan The Insider Says:

    This kid isn’t only a north/south runner. He has plenty of lateral ability.

    Anyone crying about this pick didn’t watch much SEC football. Gator fans know how much of a nightmare Vaughn was. Remember that own 1 yard line run where had a chance to go for 99 yards?

    This kid is DANGEROUS. Lots of upside. Exactly what you want a draft pick to be. You’re betting on the upside.

  88. tbbucs3 Says:


    I LOVE the Chris Thompson idea.

  89. Rod Munch Says:

    Someone named Ivan would hold a grudge against someone named Ronnie.

  90. Jean Lafitte Says:

    This guy, after witnessing Joe’s dramatized reaction, will never, probably ever live up to Joe’s standard. He will be the focal point of many hard hitting articles through no fault of his. I can’t imagine how many future slam articles will be on Licht and Arians because of this 3rd round pick. Negative crap all the time changes hearts and minds and you guys have created a following. What’s next? Torches and pitchforks

  91. Rod Munch Says:

    Yeah, if Chris Thompson is healthy, he’d be a perfect 3rd down back. Same with Theo Riddick. Then even the next set of guys, like Bilal Powell. Heck, Devonta Freeman is out there – if he’s healthy, that’s a guy who can play 3 downs if you need him to.

    Really the question is health with all these FA RB’s, and without being able to bring them in or do physicals, you can’t really sign anyone. But there’s a good amount of guys available, so RB is something I just wouldn’t worry about.

    What I would worry about is 3rd WR where we are currently starting Scotty Miller.

  92. CPN Says:

    Everyone said the Bucs need to draft a RB. So they drafted a RB.

    And yet, everyone is mad it’s not a guy they know. Or one of the top backs like Akers, Dobbins etc.

  93. Frank Pillow Says:

    What is there to complain about, really? The team has attempted to fill critical needs with it’s top 3 picks. For all of the griping about Jason, the RB selection has Bruce’s fingerprints all over it. Vaughn is a productive back with good power and speed, with the ability to catch the football. He’s in the David Johnson mold. The Draft is FAR from over and there are plenty of skill position players left that can contribute on this team. Plus…

    1. Wirfs
    2. Winfield
    3. Vaughn
    4. Gronk

    …Is draft that I think most of us would’ve been thrilled with a week ago.

  94. TheRealDrew Says:

    Double up and take Eno Benjamin. He reminds me a little of Dalvin Cook. I think Vaughn has some well rounded ability, though. Looks pretty good in pass pro and catches well. Vandy wasn’t that good. A lot of penetration against o-line and a lot of high snaps throwing off timing of handoffs.

  95. tbbucs3 Says:

    I tell ya what, the way Licht is drafting past the 1st round he is on his way to creating a pretty good high school football team. Might even win states.

  96. Capt.Tim Says:

    Really like our first two picks!
    Well, its getting better!
    We usually screw up our 2nd round pick.

  97. Bucamania Says:

    The RB value was in the second round. Licht continues to try and outsmart everyone at RB. Guess Dare is happy.

  98. kgh4life Says:

    Weaknesses are vision and avoiding contact, smh, those are the two most important traits a RB should excel at to be successful. Looks like another bust at RB for Licht.

  99. WhyIHateOurFans Says:

    Give the kid a chance. Y’all are crushing the kid and he hasn’t carried the ball once. I was surprised but it’s not a bad pick. Would have actually preferred we traded up for Zach Baun or drafted The Davidson kid out of Auburn and waited for a running back even later. Rojo is our starter. We just need a kid that can catch and evidently he can. Give him a chance before you call him a bum

  100. kyle Says:

    I cant understand why this staff hates running backs?????? FKN dobbins was there for the taking. i hope winfield is great but jesus christ

  101. kyle Says:

    this just in ROJO sucks

  102. Jeffbuc Says:

    Not one person knows how any of these runningbacks will do. We could have got the best runningback in the draft you never know. Let the guy play a game first before you go calling it a bad pick. How do you know it’s a bad pick because some guy who works in media an said he is 14tg best runningback. If those were so good at evaluating talent they would have a job in the nfl evaluating talent. Not on scouts of nfl of America sporting world journal of Milwaukee. Was Kamara drafted in the 3rd round did saints fans just think they drafted a pro bowl runningback who was a backup on his sec team

  103. stpetebucsfan Says:

    ROJO can catch the ball…simply check out his catch % numbers. He does not have soft hands or make it look smooth but he can do that if needed. He needs tons of help learning to run exact routes…where Brady will expect him to be on the field at all times. I have some optimism for ROJO there.

    Where ROJO truly sucks is pass pro. And that’s an unforgivable liability with the 43 year old GOAT to protect. ROJO frequently just gets tossed aside like a rag doll.

    Vaughn is a legitimate 5-11 220 lbs…ROJO had to bulk up to get to those numbers. Vaughn is considered a good blocker in pass pro. That probably had as much as anything to do with this selection. Protecting Brady!!!

    And does Vaughn know the right thing to say? Get this from his interview…

    “I’m very comfortable there (in pass blocking). Now knowing that I have Tom Brady as my quarterback I gotta be even more serious about getting that done, and taking that more seriously as far as knowing who I got on certain plays, making sure my technique is good at all times. Because that man that’s throwing the ball, we need him at all times.”

  104. adam from ny Says:

    he does get skinny cutting thru tight holes in the line…he looks decent…one cut type runner…no juke moves at all…no real vision…certainly not a beast like some here say…should be a decent nfl guy…seems to have a lot of heart and seems tough with good leg drive…

    i think he looks like a pats type running back…they probably believe he can turn into brady’s checkdown guy…because he runs hard with his one cut ability – so that can equal close to 10 yards per catch…brady makes guys better…so if he makes vaughn better, then vaughn will look like a true 3rd round back for us…

    maybe brady had a little input on this decision as well…

    you never know

  105. adam from ny Says:

    pull a move and swoop into the top of the 4th and grab eason…

    why not…
