Cowboys select K-State star running back Deuce Vaughn
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - A collegiate All-American is headed to Dallas Cowboys. Kansas State’s Deuce Vaughn has a new team after being selected in the sixth round with the No. 212 overall pick.
Vaughn was a consensus All-American in back-to-back seasons in 2021 and 2022 during his time in Manhattan. He was designated a First Team All-American as an all-purpose pick for the 2022 season.
Vaughn’s father, Chris, is a scout for the Cowboys.
During his three seasons at K-State, Vaughn electrified out of the backfield despite his 5-foot-5 height. He scored 43 total touchdowns in 37 career games, including an 88-yard score in the Sugar Bowl following a 2022 Big 12 Championship with the Wildcats. He rushed for 1,558 yards in 2022 and a total of 3,604 in his career in Manhattan.
Vaughn is the first Kansas State running back to be drafted since 2013, when the Kansas City Chiefs selected Braden Wilson.
