Prospect Profile: Marcus King


Full Name: Marcus King School: Missouri Pos: CB

Ht: 5-9 Wt: 199 40: 4.57 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter experienced at safety and cornerback. Senior totals included 50/3/13 after 33/7/2 as a junior.

Pos: Naturally gifted athlete with solid size/speed numbers. Fluid flipping his hips, plays to his timed speed and easily runs downfield with opponents. Effective facing the quarterback and displays solid hands for the interception.

Neg: Prefers to side-shuffle, gives up a lot of underneath receptions and lacks a sense of timing. Late reacting to receivers' moves, loses assignments and is usually a half-step behind opponents.

Analysis: Relying on natural skills, King lacks football instincts and has not progressed the way scouts expected. Must show a willingness to dedicate himself to the details of his game.
