Can Deuce Vaughn be a productive member of the Cowboys RB room?

With Tony Pollard's departure to Tennessee, the Cowboys have a major vacancy at the top of their running back depth chart. The free agent market was stronger than expected,

 pricing Dallas out early and resulting in a reunion with 2023's RB2, Rico Dowdle.It's evident that the Cowboys need to add one, if not two, more running backs to their roster in 2024, 

unless they believe one of their down-roster players has the ability to move up into a larger position. Perhaps that person is Deuce Vaughn.

Vaughn made headlines less than a year ago. The explosive Kansas State running back is the son of scout Chris Vaughn. The emotional phone call between a father

and son on draft day became must-see television not only in Dallas, but around the country.Vaughn, selected 212th overall,

was the 14th running back taken in 2023. While he was extremely effective in college, his professional chances were somewhat limited due to his inescapable size limits. 

 At 5-foot-6 and 176 pounds, he would be one of the NFL's tiniest players. And the physical demands of the running back position could expose him in a variety of ways.

As his rookie season shown, their fears were well-founded. Following an unproductive start to the season, Vaughn found himself buried on the depth chart
