Overall: King took over as a fulltime starting cornerback as a true freshman in 2001 and remained a fulltime starter since throughout his four-year career at Wake Forest. He started all 12 games as a junior in 2003 (59 total tackles, three INT's and 15 PBU) and 10-of-11 games as a senior in 2004 (40 tackles, two sacks, one INT and 11 PBU). King does not have good size and, at best, will be limited to a sub-package role as a slot cover corner in the NFL. However, he has the quickness, ball skills and just enough speed to develop into a dime DC in the NFL, which is why he's worth taking a chance on in the late rounds of the 2005 draft.
