Not sure you’ll find a cornerback with the length Kevin King possess. Standing at 6’3″ and having 32″ long arms King is a tall player that uses his length to his advantage. Allowed just one touchdown over last 101 targets. Played corner, slot corner, and safety at the University of Washington so that position flexibility will intrigue most teams. Has some of the better ball skills I have seen from any corner in this years draft and good hands to go with them. Good in shadowing receivers in coverage while being able to play off and make a play on the ball.


For as big as a player King is he is not physical at all. Retreats from blockers and has struggled in making tackles in the open field. His combine numbers were fantastic but doesn’t play as explosive as those numbers say. Needs to build up strength in his upper body.


Pro Comparison:

Sean Smith – Las Vegas Raiders – Cornerback

Overall Review:

Has the ideal size you want in a NFL corner to go along with great ball skills. Was a play maker for the loaded Huskies defense. Lacks technique to come in and be a big contributor right away. Needs to work on his transitions and fluidity in his lower half. If a team with the right scheme (zone heavy) drafts him and coaches him up has the ability to be a top corner in the NFL.
