Justin King


As many of you know, we have a 3rd- year CB named Justin King and we have a defensive minded coach named Spags.  Spags is more known for his D-line but I'm curious to see what he can make out of Justin King.

King is a great CB in terms of size and speed, however, that does not translate to his play.  I'm not sure why he has not been better.  I would think it has a lot to do with his technique and approach to the game.  Perhaps he plays recklessly.  I'm not sure because I never really get to see what the CBs are doing until they get burned.  He has also dealt with injuries.  He was drafted in the 4th round of the 2008 draft and missed his entire rookie season.  Last year he did not appear to be doing very well statistically.  This could be because of a poor D-line giving receivers too much time to get open or it could be poor play on his part.  At 5' 11'' 192 lbs and a 4.31 40 time, he has the measurables to be a great CB.  But he hasn't yet.

So my question for all of you to discuss is how you think he will progress and why he hasn't done anything to this point.  I know 2009 was his first full season and he'll only 23 this season.  So what does everyone think his peak is?  Do you believe Spags can turn him into a great CB?  What do you think he has to do to improve or what are his flaws? 

 

I think if he really works on getting stronger he would be better at being physical with receivers at the line and give him an advantage that way.  He has the speed and the size, now he just needs to be taught to play.  I think he could turn out to be a surprise this year, but he could just as easily not be.   I think our secondary could be surprisingly good with Bartell, Fletcher, King, Dockery, Atogwe, and Butler, also with Dahl in as a decent 3rd safety.  Our front 7 is our biggest problem on defense.
