UDFA first take, James Vaughters, OLB/ILB, Stanford

James VaughtersJames Vaughters stands 6’2″ and weighs in at 254 pounds.

In 13 games as a senior he had 51 tackles, 11.0 tackles for loss, with 6.5 sacks. where he gets lost is in coverage he doesn’t look fluid with his change of direction but as a edge rusher or run stopper I like what I see.

Javess Blue, the wide receiver out of Kentucky comes in at 6′ and 188 lbs., posted a 4.56-40 yard dash, has a 33″ vertical, 10’1″ broad jump, but only had 29 catches for 525 yds and 5 TD’s. While he does not look like much he seems to have the speed and hands to make it as a slot receiver, but what I like about his video is when he said he was a corner before changing positions and when he was he was good at it, Hmmm does Mike have ideas running through his head?
