Josh Vaughan
5-11/224 Richmond
4.59 Senior

Pros: Runs hard and likes contact. Able to get yards after contact due to foot drive. Shows some burst on the second level. Has good patience and balance. Has capable hands and can be a nice blocker when he wants to be due to his size and strength.

Cons: Not quick to the hole and lacks ideal speed. Doesn't break as many tackles as his size would merit. Dances too much and doesn't change direction well. Chips guys in pass protection and needs more work there. Lacks ideal vision.

Overview: He's a nice north-south runner that has some power, but is not what I'd call a "slammer" type. He's not as good as Tim Hightower, having worked behind him for three years. But responded with a strong senior year, finishing with 1,636 yards and 19 touchdowns.

NFL Forecast: Has experience working on punt coverage, and it's likely that's where his best chance of sticking in the NFL rests. He'll need to play well on special teams. He's nothing special as a runner. Teams like his production and size, but he doesn't play like that consistently. Could possibly be bulked up some more and moved to fullback. He's not as good as Hightower because he lacks his vision and burst. He might be a decent short-yardage back as well working on goal line situations. He's a nice player that could stick around for some years on a practice squad, but I think will need to be moved to fullback to become a factor on offense down the road.

ATL Forecast: Vaughan could be another nice developmental backup fullback to challenge Snelling in a year or two. He's a similar runner to Snelling, but not as big. As such he could become a nice backup FB in a few years, but is too much of a project to really like his chances as of now.

Value: I wouldn't draft Vaughn, but it wouldn't crazy for a team to take him late in the seventh round.
