During last week’s NFL Combine, there were several rumors concerning players that visited with the Kansas City Chiefs ahead of the NFL Draft. Deuce Vaughn of the Kansas State Wildcats is one of the most fascinating names among them.
Vaughn was a three-star recruit out of Round Rock, Texas’ Cedar Ridge High School. As a true freshman in Manhattan, he appeared in 10 games. He immediately established himself as a dual offensive threat, running for 642 yards and adding 434 yards.

Vaughn was a two-time consensus All-American despite being only 5’5″ and weighing 179 pounds, concluding his three-year NCAA career with 4,884 yards from scrimmage and 43 touchdowns – averaging 6.4 yards per play.

Vaughn, the smallest athlete in Combine history, isn’t afraid to sprint between the tackles. He has the agility (as well as the explosive explosion off his cuts) of fellow Kansas native, Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders.
