Ke’Shawn Vaughn

Ke’Shawn Vaughn was see as an absolute steal that late in the draft for the Buccaneers, but he hasn’t shown any type of extended explosiveness or consistency in camp as of yet.

That doesn’t mean things can’t change, but they are what they are right now.

Vaughn missed early portions of camp going through protocol, but has since struggled since taking the field. He has dropped several passes on easy routes outside of the backfield, fumbled the ball during the scrimmage last week, and hasn’t shown much of anything in terms of an ability to break off a big run or hit the hole with great power and speed.

The game will eventually slow down for Vaughn, but it does seem that the Buccaneers will have to rely more upon Ronald Jones II, LeSean McCoy and Dare Ogunbowale early in the season to carry the running game.

All three of these rookies have talent and the potential is there, but they’re understandably still working their way into the offense and, hopefully, we’ll get to see them get better each and every day.
