Hot on the tails of the news the Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to terms with 2020 first-round NFL Draft pick Tristan Wirfs, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports the team has also agreed with third-round pick, Ke’Shawn Vaughn.
Another one done: Bucs have agreed to terms with their third-round pick, running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn from Vanderbilt. Five of seven draft picks have agreed to terms -- only safety Antoine Winfield and linebacker Chapelle Russell left. They'll sign after completing physicals.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) July 22, 2020
Vaughn was a bit of a surprise pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Many thought the Bucs would take a running back with their first pick on day two, when they instead took Minnesota safety Antoine Winfield Jr.
Even when the Buccaneers took their running back, it wasn’t Vaughn many had their eyes on as Utah’s Zack Moss was a hot name floating around social media as the pick got closer and closer.
Vaughn’s running backs coach at Vanderbilt praised the rookie for displaying pro-like tendencies before ever finishing his collegiate career, and with this news he can focus on getting his NFL career off on the right foot.
As Auman also stated in his tweet Wednesday evening, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have just two picks remaining to lock up for their rookie deals, and expects Winfield Jr. and Chapelle Russell to do so pending physicals.
