Elite quickness, agility and length with an aggressive mentality. He can make acrobatic plays on the ball. Occasionally a business decision tackler but flashes some dog in him at times despite a rail thin frame. Adept playing man or off coverage. And has experience in the slot and at safety.
Rail thin frame and has gotten nicked up routinely. Tested phenomenally but doesn't show top notch long speed on tape. Inconsistent tackler who can show up soft.
The “other CB in Washington” has been a favorite of mine all season. Started to come on as a senior after a fairly solid career playing CB and Safety. King has the kind of length, quickness and physicality that's in demand in the NFL now. He's not played at an especially high level his entire college career but he’s progressed, put together a great senior season and has plenty of upside. The draft buzz before his running mate’s injury, was that some scouts preferred him over Jones. If he can stay out the trainer's room and add better strength, he'll become a good starting NFL CB.
