Robert Vaughn, FS, Connecticut

Robert Vaughn started his true freshman campaign at Connecticut on the scout team, but was soon pressed into more playing time. After spending the first five weeks of the season watching from the sidelines, Vaughn finally got on the field. It was mostly on special teams, but Vaughn ended up starting two games due to the injury to then starting safety M.J. Estep. In those two starts against Rutgers and Pittsburgh, Vaughn made seven tackles and showed plenty of potential. The following season Vaughn was a regular starter and picked off seven passes and made 56 tackles. By the time Vaughn was an upperclassman, the opposition knew better than to throw in his direction and the result was fewer interceptions, but more tackles. His efforts earned him Second Team All-Big East accolades. Vaughn finished off his collegiate career by picking off four passes and recovering three fumbles. He also totaled 59 tackles during the regular season. NFL scouts will get caught up with Vaughn's height, or lack there of. Vaughn is listed at 6-0, but that may be a little generous and the final verdict will come at the NFL Combine. Vaughn needs a good showing during Senior Week to be anything but a mid-to-late round selection, but he is an experienced player with a knack for making the big play. 2/21 Update: Vaughn finished off his collegiate career with a nice performance against South Carolina in the Papajohns.com Bowl, including an interception. However, the news after the season is not as promising. Vaughn was not invited to the NFL Combine and will have to have some solid individual workouts to stay in the sixth to seventh round range.
