King finished his career at South Carolina, where he played in 26 career games, had 97 tackles, 4.0 for loss, 4 interceptions, 21 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovered. He has good overall size, he has good speed, and he was a tackling machine. He is also a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is a hard hitter, very physical, he does not back down, and is a very solid cover cornerback. He is also a shut down cornerback, a very relentless defender, and has a knack for knowing where the ball is, and going and getting the ball. On the other hand, he is not the tallest cornerback, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view King as a early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
