Kevin King NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’3 200lbs
- Size, extremely tall for corner
Analysis: Kevin King has rare height for the position and that length creates challenge for receivers used to winning at the high point. Instinctive with good feel for finding football. Allowed just one touchdown over last 101 targets. Six career interceptions with hands to make the circus pick. Patient from press coverage. Quick to turn and locate once his back is to the quarterback. Saw increase in pass breakups in senior season. Solid job of restricting catch window on routes outside the numbers. Shoves receivers toward boundary and drifts into their running lane to decrease catch opportunity.
- Play speed
- Upper body strength
- Takes path to man over ball
- Arm tackler
- Ball skills
Analysis: Scouts question Kevin King’s play speed and his sluggish feet in press-coverage allow quick-releasers to shoot past him. Unable to find necessary acceleration for functional makeup speed. Hands are flimsy in his jams. Could use more upper body strength. High center of gravity makes sudden change of direction a challenge. NFL ball production could be a concern. Takes path to his man over paths to the ball. Lacks desired twitch for NFL transitioning to the throws. Ankle biter willing to engage in too many arm tackles and blind shoulder rolls.
