SCOUTING REPORT

Overall, Kalen King has been projected as a top talent, with potential as a starting cornerback in the NFL. Despite some technique and consistency issues observed in the 2023 season, his solid performance in previous years and against high-quality competition underline his potential. While there were instances of struggle, particularly in maintaining balance and avoiding penalties, his overall skill set indicates he could be a valuable asset in the NFL, likely aligning with a second to mid-round draft projection based on various evaluations??????.

PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

Kalen King is best utilized as an Outside Man/Press Cornerback. He demonstrates a feisty competitive nature and does not give wide receivers an inch in coverage. He is a fleet-footed, quick-twitch cover man with excellent corrective quickness and mobility, making him highly effective in man coverage. However, his average size and sometimes uncontrolled movements at stems could be limiting factors against larger, more physical receivers. His style fits well with aggressive defensive schemes that rely on man coverage and require cornerbacks to support run defense.
