    How Kevin King, the hidden gem of an NFL-bound secondary

    For most of the 2016 college football season, talk of the stellar Washington defense was taken over by two names: cornerback Sidney Jones and safety Budda Baker. Given their numbers and All-American college football jersey accolades, that’s not surprising. Bejesus, even rookie Taylor Rapp got more pub than King, college basketball jerseys earning Pac-12 Freshman Defensive Player of the Year influences. But Lake knew what the Huskies had in King, a 6' 3", 200-pound defensive back whoever length, athleticism and instincts caused all sorts of problems for the other offenses. “When we got here he was a safety, and while I thought corner was his natural position, we kept him there first, ” Lake says. “Then moved him to corner as a freshman, and he played more nickel, which really allowed him to show off his fit ability. He really clogged the side of the road with his 6' 3" frame. Quarterbacks are trying to throw down the seam and he’s just knocking the ball away, picking it off and covering up spots. I had never thought of having somebody of the length play over the video slot. But after we repped it a ncaa basketball jersey few times I was like, ‘Uh, yeah, this setup is pretty good. ’” King thought about cheap basketball jerseys leaving for the AMERICAN FOOTBAL after 2015, but got feedback from scouts that he should revisit school and play more outside corner, the position he’s most likely to play in the professionals. Lake wanted to make the move, too, in part to give King an opportunity to build up a highlight baitcasting reel at that position but also because he knew it would help the Huskies. King made the move and shined: One of his personal favorite highlights came in UW’s 66-27 win at Cal, when King was beat on a deep route that pushed the Bears into the red zone, then responded with back-to-back deflections to keep Cal from scoring. Though he was often overshadowed by teammates, Lake knew that when King’s time came, he’d leave an impression.
