Strengths Weaknesses

Like Johnson (who was drafted in the seventh round), King lacks the elite measureables to warrant early-round consideration. He's a long-strider with good build-up speed and the size and willingness as a blocker to remain outside at split end.

Player Overview

The Kentucky program has been a virtual factory of receivers, churning out seven into the pro game over the past 15 years, most notably the Buffalo Bills' Stevie Johnson and the Green Bay Packers' Randall Cobb.

King showed improved route-running as a junior and, not surprisingly, developed into Kentucky's most reliable pass-catcher despite the fact that the Wildcats had a revolving door at quarterback last year (and could this year, as well). He eclipsed previous career highs in receptions (40), receiving yards (598) and touchdowns (seven), leading the team in all three categories.

The focus that he demonstrated last year, however, wasn't there during the spring as King became a father and elected to pledge a fraternity. King has publicly admitted that he was distracted during the spring and has thus far proven a different player during summer practices.

NFL scouts won't be pleased with King's decision to put a fraternity pledge over football but a strong 2012 campaign can erase memories quickly. With 86 receptions over his career -- over twice as many as the rest of the Kentucky receiving corps combined -- the Wildcats are counting on the preseason All-SEC pick (second team) to do so.
