BIO: Two-year starter that's produced consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons, winning all-conference honors in both campaigns. Totaled 210,1240/11 and caught eight passes as a senior. Junior totals were 216/1,140/9 when he was named Offensive Player of the Year in the Southland Conference. Prime backup as a sophomore yet still posted 136/787/6. Career rushing average is over 5.5 yards per attempt.
POSITIVES: Elusive, quick footed runner best between tackles. Quick through the hole, displays a burst and immediately finds the running lanes. Cuts back against the grain, squirms through the small openings and displays some toughness working his runs to get the extra yardage.
NEGATIVES: Not effective blocking in pass protection and tends to go at defenders feet rather than squaring up. Goes down rather easily and does not pick up much yardage off initial contact, nor does he play to his size. Can not run to daylight. Only minimal skills as a receiver out of the backfield.
ANALYSIS: King has been very productive for a winning program at McNeese State, yet even with that he does not seem to get the most out of his abilities. Should be a tough, dominant runner on the inside, but does not seem to do the little things which would help him standout. Unless he displays terrific hands out of the backfield in camp next summer, may have a tough time making a final roster.
