Has worked to improve his blocking and does a nice job getting out on the run. Fast enough to get open against man coverage, and has sure hands on short routes. Very durable.
Limited as a pass blocker because of his average size at tight end. Isn't the deep threat he could be as a receiver and too often settles for outlets and short routes (which keeps him from posting big numbers).
All-round above-average tight end.

The blocking tight end is sitting out OTAs, but sounds like he'll be ready for training camp. He's likely recovering from a scope. A seven-year veteran, King graded out as the third-worst tight end in the league in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season.
