The Bronco select Tavarres King in the 5th round Overview It was expected that King would take over as the Bulldogs’ playmaking receiver after A.J. Green left for the NFL and was picked fourth overall by Cincinnati in the 2011 draft. But while he led the team in receptions (47), receiving yards (705) and receiving touchdowns (eight) as a junior, he didn’t hit triple digits until the team’s final game of the year -– a huge six-catch, 205-yard, one-touchdown effort in the team’s loss to Michigan State in the Outback Bowl. King was Georgia’s Gatorade High School Player of the Year in 2007 after racking up 99 receptions covering 1,632 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior. He played in four games as a true freshman, catching two passes for 66 yards, before deciding to save a year of eligibility via redshirt. He stepped in 12 games both in 2009 (starting five, 18-377, TD) and 2010 (five starts, 27-504, 3 TD). As a senior, playing in 13 games, King caught 42 passes for 950 yards and nine touchdowns. Analysis Strengths Possesses the quickness off the line that helps him shake off press and fly by cornerbacks playing off-coverage. As a vertical threat, he can track the ball over either shoulder and grab the ball with his hands near his head. He also has elusiveness after the catch to free himself after a hitch route. The work on his upper body has paid off, as he can play through physical corners to get inside position when needed. Extremely fluid route runner, plays with tremendous balance and body control. Weaknesses Doesn’t have ideal bulk. Dropped passes have been an issue for King during his career, and he doesn’t always find the ball in the air or go up to high-point passes downfield. Though he is quick and elusive, he’ll out-juke himself trying to make defenders miss in the open field. While is capable of making a block outside on quick screens, King also doesn’t offer consistent physicality. NFL Comparison Damian Williams Bottom Line King lacks tremendous size, and his hands have also been an issue at times, allowing potential big plays to slip through his fingers. However, he’s a very fluid player, with impressive quickness and balance. He should be a mid-round selection. Above information from NFL Network This article has been read 0 times
