King came in our school as a highly regarded prospect, and exceeded expectations his first two seasons with the Nits. He had a rough go this year due to injuries and lack of pressure on the QB.
I think King more than made the right decision. I believe he is graduating a year early, and it would be the right time for him to go. He has all the characteristics and raw talent that NFL scouts like, and he will do well for himself provided he has a strong combine. I expect him to go mid-late 2nd round, and would absolutely love for the Eagles to grab him. The Eagles have a great tradition of molding all-star CBs. This is all provided that the Birds' CB coach stays, and does not accept a position elsewhere.
What does this do to PSU? Wallace is returning, and our defense will improve(and hopefully stay healthy) next year. Hopefully, Timmons will get the message that he is on Joe's last good nerve. I don't think it will hurt us all that much, really. Then again, we all fully expected PSU to have a dominant defense, but we all saw what happened there.
So good luck to King. He played well, is graduating, and I wish him the best of times. Just don't go to any other NFC East teams. Selah.
Looks like my picks were spot-on. No, wait, what's the opposite of that...sucking poo. Some notes:
- The only game i got right was the Pats beating Jacksonville. I'm a freakin' regular Creskin.
- The Giants just kept getting stronger as the game went on. The Cowboys just couldn't do anything right after the first drive of the second half. And Romo still made a mistake at the end of playoff game, ruining the Cowboys' hopes 2 years i a row. Very unclutch, which I thought was Eli's job.
- The Chargers got heart. Except for Rivers, who did his Morelli impression of getting into it with the fans at a game.
