BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a redshirt freshman. Second-team All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 31/10/2.5 in six games. Missed half the season after breaking his leg. Junior totals included 73/16.5/9.
POSITIVES: Athletic defensive lineman with good upside for the next level. Gets leverage on opponents, quick off the snap and displays lower-body strength. Moves well laterally, plays with balance and rarely off his feet. Tough, yet at the same time an intelligent defender who reads the action.
NEGATIVES: Not strong and ridden from his angle of attack by tight ends. Lacks explosion and suddenness.
ANALYSIS: A prospect who tests well and has shown great intensity in the past, King offers potential at several defensive line positions. Can play the all-important left end spot, or may ultimately grow into a tackle. Solid middle-round choice who could be developed for the future.
