Georgia WR Tavarres King To Have Pre Draft Visit With Steelers
According to Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King on Twitter, he is headed to Pittsburgh for a pre drafty visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
King, who measured in at the NFL combine at 6002 and 189 pounds, ran a 4.40 40 yard dash in Indianapolis and also posted a 36.5 vertical jump, a 10\’03” broad jump, a 4.33 short shuttle time and did 11 reps of 225 pounds on the bench.
In 56 games played at Georgia, King recorded 136 receptions for 2,602 yards and 21 touchdowns.
Possessing 33 inch arms, King has a better than average catch radius. He was targeted 68 times in 2012 and caught 42 of those passes for 950 yards. That equates to a stunning 22.6 yards per reception average. Despite being a deep threat, King did have his share of drops and is known to struggle at getting off of the line of scrimmage against man-press coverage.
Headed into the draft, King is slated to be drafted in either the fourth or fifth round.
