What I first notice about King on the field is obviously how tall the cornerback is. Sitting at 6’3, Kevin King is taller than most corners heading into the 2017 NFL Draft. Kevin King is an intriguing prospect who could make things interesting for the Saints. King is not only a dominant, confident athlete but is very athletic and will surely improve the Saints secondary if drafted. Other aspects I enjoy when I watch King include his concentration when making interceptions, his anticipation on the field in regards to where the ball is heading, and his general focus to make plays.
