Broncos selected Georgia WR Tavarres King with the No. 161 overall pick.
King (6-foot 1/4, 189) hauled in 42 Aaron Murray passes as a senior for 950 yards (22.6 YPR) and nine touchdowns. He lit up Alabama for 128 yards on five catches in the SEC title game. With legit speed (4.47 forty) to separate from defensive backs and long arms (33") to create a wide catching radius, King looks every bit the part of an NFL No. 2 or low-end No. 1 receiver. King will slide in as the Broncos' No. 4 receiver. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 03:21:00 PM

Georgia WR Tavarres King ran an official 4.47 forty, which included a 1.58 10 yard split, at the NFL Combine.

King had a great showing during Senior Bowl week, but he disappeared at times during his senior season. The Bulldog added a 36.5 inch vertical jump. Expect a day three selection.

Georgia WR Tavarres King will attend the Senior Bowl.

King is a reliable target with length who appeared to add a vertical element to his game early in the season. He is certainly not a top two option at the receiver spot, but King should be selected sometime during the third day.

Georgia WR Tavarres King tweeted that he has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

King has shown some vertical playmaking ability this season for the Bulldogs but failed to generate consistent numbers. The senior receiver group is a bit weak at the top, but King should be selected int he draft's third day in April.

Georgia senior WR Tavarres King showed downfield playmaking ability in the Bulldogs opener against Buffalo, hauling in six catches for 117 yards and a touchdown.

King has been overshadowed throughout his career, but if this opener was any indication the senior could be in for a big year. Junior quarterback Aaron Murray targeted King often, and the two connected on a 63 yard play. King has excellent straight-line speed, but we will see if he can keep up this kind of production against stiffer competition.

Tavarres King had a career-high 206 yards receiving in Georgia's 33-30 3OT Outback Bowl loss to Michigan State.

King had 6 receptions and one TD, which covered 80 yards. His previous career-best was 109 yards against Kentucky in 2009. King obliterated his season high, which was a 65-yard effort against Coastal Carolina on Sept. 17.

In the latest scrimmage for the Georgia Bulldogs, the defense was beat up which allowed the offense to put the hurt on them even more.  Aaron Murray threw for 125 yards and a score while backup Hutson Mason had 192 yards, three touchdowns, and two picks.  Wide receiver Tavarres King caught three passes, one of which was a 45-yard score.

Murray should be a top tier BCS quarterback while King has some big sleeper potential.

The booze was flowing in Athens once again as Georgia running back Dontavius Jackson was arrested and charged with DUI, leaving a scene of an accident and other traffic violations early Saturday morning.  Receiver Tavarres King was also arrested and charged with underage possession of alcohol.

King had a solid spring and is expected to be a major contributor this fall.  We await word on their punishments.

According to teammate Brandon Boykin, the most improved player for the Georgia Bulldogs is wide receiver Tavarres King.  King has bulked up in the offseason and Boykin says that "you can just tell his releases are a lot quicker and he’s working with his hands a lot better."

Tavarres King could very well be the receiving threat opposite A.J. Green that the Bulldogs have missed in the past few years.  Consider King a nice sleeper option in BCS and SEC-only leagues.

Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King caught three balls for 109 yards in the loss to Kentucky.
