More “Vision” Talk

August 23rd, 2020

There’s consistency on one subject coming from the Bucs coaching staff.

Last week, Bucco Bruce Arians was quick to praise the vision of rookie running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn.

Today, running backs coach Todd McNair repeated that theme praising the vision of Vaughn and more, despite being handicapped by limited reps among veterans like Ronald Jones, LeSean McCoy and Dare Ogunbowale.

“I was pleased with how [Vaughn and fellow rookie Raymond Calais] picked up [the offense] – virtual learning, you know, the whole spring after the draft and then the summer. Ke’Shawn is doing well – he’s got great vision and great feel inside, good contact balance – a lot of what we saw on tape,” McNair said.

Joe hopes Vaughn gets a shot at some point. It’s hard to prove that vision without getting in a real game, though it’s going to be very tough to push through RoJo and McCoy to get those carries early and build confidence.

    I was very confused at the article over on CBS where Arians said that Vaughn won’t contribute much on opening day outside of possibly a return man.

    By week 8 I think Vaughn will be our #1. He has some serious skill

    Emmitt wasn’t the biggest or fastest guy but he had elite vision. If Vaughn’s is at least good, he should be fine.

    Let’s not forget that Vaughn was a good pass catcher and blocker in college, something that Rojo lacks.

    AlabamaBucsFan…And broke a rushing record for two teams in two years. One of those teams in the SEC. He has all around skills. Everyone hyped about RoJo, but I’m also excited about Vaughn. Teach him up Shady!

  6. David Says:

    I think McCoy is there to be the third down back while they give Rojo a chance. I also think Rojo is not going to get it done and as the season goes on Vaughn will become the other guy along with McCoy more and more

    With Brady throwing the ball accurately, these RBs will consistantly be 5-10 yard machines. One of these RBs should have a breakout season actually runnning the ball. GO BUCS!!!
