In Monday's MMQB, Peter King writes "I think we know where Dallas is going in the draft" after losing multiple defensive backs to other teams in free agency.
Starters Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne and Barry Church all exited to other teams. Slot Orlando Scandrick and late round steal Anthony Brown remain at corner, but at least two other starting spots are open. This draft is loaded at cornerback, so the Cowboys should conceivably find a starter in the later part of round one and possibly even in round two. The team's safety depth might be even more shallow.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Washington CB Kevin King "had an exceptional workout" during Saturday's pro day.

Washington's pro day results were eclipsed by the unfortunate leg injury of CB Sidney Jones, but cornerback teammate King was a standout performer before the mood took a significant hit. "The tall corner moved well, displaying a smooth backpedal and was very quick in all his actions," Pauline writes, adding that "[h]e caught all the passes thrown during drills." Per the analyst, the Lions met with King last night and the Chargers will do likewise on Sunday. The Jets are also going to run him through a private workout. King is a hot prospect who could potentially land as a late first-rounder.

NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah writes that Washington CB Kevin King "clearly established himself as a top-40 selection with his performance in Indianapolis."

Jeremiah relays that in conversations with scouts and evaluators at the Combine, King's work "kept coming up." The Washington product aced athletic testing in Indy, running through the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds and recording some of the best short shuttle and three-cone results that we have seen from a corner in the last 20 years. "This draft is loaded with talented cornerbacks," Jeremiah notes, "but his combination of size, length, ball skills and speed could make him a late-first-round pick."

ESPN's Todd McShay called Washington CB Kevin King "overlooked" and "underrated" and said the prospect "killed it" at the NFL Combine.

That he did. King posted an incredible 6.56-second three-cone on Monday. He also posted a sub-4.0 second short shuttle, becoming just the fifth corner since 1997 to have a sub-4.0 second short shuttle and a sub-6.6 second three-cone. He finished top in show among DBs in both categories. At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, King also ran a 4.43-second forty (No. 8). "Considering King's height, there are almost no comps for that kind of agility," Zach Witman wrote on Twitter. "Best are Patrick Peterson and Darrelle Revis."

Washington's Kevin King claimed the title of being the most athletic CB at the Senior Bowl after producing a workout that places him in the 99th percentile among prospects at the position.

That means only 1% of NFL cornerback prospects entering the NFL since 1999 were more athletic than King. At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and 32 inch arms, King produced a 4.43 forty, 3.89 short shuttle, 6.56 3-cone and 39.5-inch vertical jump, all numbers near or at the top of his position. He checks every box from a frame and athleticism perspective. The question is the grades area scouts already had on King, and if those will stay consistent or get a bump following the Combine, especially with the involvement of position coaches.
Mar 7 - 8:36 AM

Washington CB Kevin King logged a 40-yard dash time of 4.43 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine on Monday.

This is right in line with the times that King had reportedly been running in training. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline has voiced concerns about King's long speed, but wrote in mid-February that should he notch a 40-yard dash in the mid-4.4's, it would lock him in as a likely top-45 selection. Mission accomplished on that front, it would appear. One other very notable testing result for King -- his 39.5-inch vertical stood as the fourth-best among defensive backs.
Mar 6 - 5:00 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that Washington CB Kevin King has been running the 40-yard dash in the 4.4's during training.

Pauline notes that there have been red flags regarding King's speed -- he wrote in November that "long speed is a concern" -- red flags that might just be swept away if the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder can turn it up in testing. Per Pauline, he has been clocked under 4.40 seconds in the 40-yard dash on a hand timer during his draft prep. On an electronic timer, that might bump to 4.45 seconds or thereabouts. "If he’s able to break into the mid-4.4s on the final day of [C]ombine workouts," the analyst writes, "King will cement himself as a top-45 selection."
Feb 17 - 5:05 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline says NFL teams are "salivating over" Washington CB Kevin King's measurables and "King plays to them, physically beating down opponents to defend passes."

King had an interception in Saturday's victory over Arizona State. "Long speed is a concern and pre-draft forty times are critical but as told to me by one insider, King is a typical Seattle Seahawks type of cornerback who will be selected during the second day of the draft," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-3 1/2, 190-pound King has broken up 10 passes this year.

ESPN's KC Joyner believes Washington "the best cornerback tandem in the country."

You likely already know about Sidney Jones. Get to know his running mate Kevin King, because he's no slouch himself. King tied for No. 5 among Power 5 CBs (40-plus attempts) with 4.8 yards per attempt last year. And have we mentioned that he's 6-foot-3, 190 pounds? Pete Carroll and staff may be interested in keeping the local kid home.
