I see your point. But does he actually have 4.7 speed? He timed 4.53 at his pro day, so there there's that. Overall I just think he's been too consistent (4 year starter) to dismiss completely. On the other hand, he might just be a carbon copy of what we already have on this team.[/quote]

I just don't think King fits what our defense is trying to do at all. And that is to get more speed on this defense. Hyde was a fine player, but because of his not so great speed, the Packers supposedly didn't even give him a offer. I doubt they'd draft King this high in the draft if their focus on defense is to add speed and athleticism. I don't think King is any faster than Hyde. Don't get me wrong King is a fine football player, but I'd have to think his speed and our new philosophy drop him on our board.

Has the staff went and said we have a new philosophy on defense that everyone needs to be really fast?

I thought that was just what the fans say. Did anyone say that? Asking genuinely.

Norm, people were talking about Mack a long time ago.

Love the mock, especially the value grabs. King seems like a TT guy even if the measurables aren't there.


There was an uptick in the mocks I saw him I lately compared to like a month ago and before. Maybe it was just coincidence. I wasn't implying nobody ever talked about him but it seemed like I saw him a bunch in them for a couple weeks.
