The Dallas Cowboys caused a key employee of theirs to break down in tears live during the 2023 NFL Draft - but for a heartwarming reason. 

They selected Kansas State running back Deuce Vaughn with the 212nd pick of the Draft, who happens to be the son of Chris Vaughn, a Cowboys scout. And his reaction after the pick was announced was all kinds of awesome! Take a look below at the footage at the emotional Vaughn as the rest of the room erupted in applause: 

And afterward, the elder Vaughn admitted that while he knew his son was on the board as a potential, he never saw it coming.

"I’m not thinking we’re taking Deuce, because when I come in, we’re talking about a couple other players as options,” Vaughn said Sunday morning. “I commented on the guys we’re talking about, the positives, the negatives of taking him there. I’m completely team first, but yeah, there’s that inner struggle. Once we finished that conversation, we as a group decided on a player. We went on the clock; I thought we were taking that player."

“The dad in you wants to say, Hey, my son’s the highest-rated guy on the board right now. Why aren’t we considering him at this pick?” he says. “The professional in you, is like, We want what’s best for this organization.”

Last season with Kansas State, the younger Vaughn racked up 1,558 yards as a senior.
