BIO: Three-time All-Conference selection who moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore. Posted 40/1/11 as a senior after 59/3/18 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Quick-footed, explosive cornerback with marginal size. Fluid transitioning to run with opponents and positions himself to make a play on the ball. Displays a burst of closing speed and quickly plants, then breaks on the throw. Fluid backpedaling in reverse, immediately diagnoses the action and locates the ball. Works hard to get a hand in and defend the throw. Solid wherewithal and field awareness.
NEGATIVES: Suffered with hamstring problems during his senior season. Undersized and beaten by tall receivers. Inconsistent tackler.
ANALYSIS: A feisty cornerback effective backed off the line of scrimmage, King is a solid athlete with good defensive back techniques. Has immediate potential as a nickel back and a prospect who can see spot duty as a starter in the NFL.
