Analysis (Taylor O’Neill): Playing his first two seasons at Washington as a safety, Kevin King moved to corner for his final two seasons. The first thing one notices about King is his rare height for a defensive back. At 6’3, King ran the 40 in 4.43. He was one of the better defensive backs at the combine, putting up great numbers in the vertical jump (39.5′), the 3 cone drill (6.56 seconds), and the 20 yard shuttle (3.89 seconds).
Team Fit (Mike Wendlandt): King is the perfect fit on the boundary for the Packers. With his exceptional length (6’3”) and ball skills, he should start right away on the outside opposite Davon House. This also allows Damarious Randall to move inside where he is best and also takes some pressure off of Randall and Quentin Rollins.
King comes into Green Bay already the most athletic defensive back on the roster with his exceptional speed and burst, which combined with his ball skills and football IQ make him an immediate upgrade and a potential difference maker for the Packers. He will be paired perfectly with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on whatever side of the field they line up and nothing will get over their heads.
Player Comparison (John Piotrowski): Brandon Browner
Top 200 Rank (Ross Uglem): 51. I lean so much toward the tape side of a football player than the measurables. I’ve got issues with what King allows in front of him, but not a real big problem with his upside. It’s basically limitless. You can’t throw the ball over his head, he’s too fast and too big.
PFF Draft Guide (Ross Uglem): King has a passer rating against of 66.8, and it was 55.6 a year. King has allowed one touchdown in the last two years.
