BIO: Four-year starter used at both safety and linebacker in college. Senior totals included 79/0/4 after a team high 143 tackles in 2003. Outstanding special teams player who tied an NCAA record with four blocked punts in a single game as a freshman.
POSITIVES: Hard-hitting defender who likes physical contact. Disciplined, gives top effort and chases to get involved in the action. Makes a lot of plays on the ball. Runs well laterally.
NEGATIVES: Not efficient and over-pursues the play. Easily knocked from his angle of attack by the first block or gets caught up in the wash. Hesitant picking up his responsibilities in deep center field.
ANALYSIS: A nice-sized prospect for the strong safety position, King has been productive and is a leader by example. Offers marginal upside for the next level yet has special teams possibilities, which could be his bread and butter.
