Panthers get a King
Full Name: Jeff King
School: Virginia Tech Pos: TE
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a junior and earned All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 26/292/6 after 25/304/4 the prior year.
Pos: Consistent tight end with a complete game. Nasty blocker who controls opponents at the point of attack. Plays with good pad level, seals defenders from the action and stays with assignments. Solid route-runner and extends to make the reception away from his frame. Reads the defense, finds the open areas on the field and exposes himself to the big hit in order to make the reception.
Neg: Not a flashy or explosive tight end. Marginal playing speed and rarely makes plays in the secondary.
Analysis: A competitive prospect with great work habits, King nicely projects as a second tight end in the NFL. Offers starting abilities in certain systems and possesses the tools to stick around the league for a long time.
