Vragović was known as a reliable utility player at Građanski and performed well in centre back, midfielder and striker roles, in addition to playing as either left or right winger for the national team.[2] He was also Građanski's captain in both of their successful Yugoslav championship campaigns in 1923 and 1926,[2] and was one of their best players when the club toured abroad and defeated Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao in 1923.

He also had 18 appearances for Zagreb XI (1920–1928) and was capped 7 times for Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1920–1923). He was called up for the team's first international tournament, at the 1920 Olympics in Antwerp, and he appeared in the country's first ever international match on 28 August 1920, a 7–0 defeat to Czechoslovakia. He was also an unused substitute at the 1924 Olympics.
