    22. Dallas Cowboys
    (From Cleveland)

    Justin King
    CB, Penn State
    King's speed and athleticism provide a very workable foundation for the Cowboys to utilize at a position of need.​

    Previous mock pick: Leodis McKelvin​

    28. Dallas Cowboys

    Felix Jones
    RB, Arkansas
    Jones might not be the Arkansas running back the Cowboys hoped to get, but trading up to land McFadden is too costly, both in terms of draft picks and guaranteed dollars for the more prominent Razorback. The Cowboys won't be disappointed with the other one, though. He should make an immediate impact as a runner and pass-catcher.​

    The only reason I posted this was beacuse I thought Justin King at 22 would incite the fury of the ZONE...

    This guy should still be around in the 2nd round.

    Vic Carucci hates the Cowboys obviously. Is a choke hold embracing the hatred?

    If we picked King with Cason and Talib still on the board, I would be ultra ****ed.

    He's a pretty good CB but that's from very limited observation of playing. Very good overall speed and good burst. He's the guy you look for in the later rounds. I'd love to take three CBs/DBs in this draft. And bring more in as FAs. We have got to get some good CBs on the field.

    I've seen Justin King going anywhere from the 1st rd all the way to the 4th or 5th. That's the epitome of boom/bust imo.

    I personally wouldn't take this kid in the first day. As physically talented as this kid is, he should have dominated but was barely average at best.

    I don't know if it's "embracing the hatred" but I wouldn't mind seeing it.

    King's the best corner in this draft.

    The two biggest critiques of him are that he isn't physical and failed to make big plays.

    Watch some 2006 film then compare it to 2007. He was more than physical when he manned up on Ginn and Meachum and shut them down. Then he injured his shoulder early in 2007. The shoulder apparently passed the combine physical and guys like Kiper are moving him back up into the first.

    A lot of average fans were down on him after Hardy had a big game but failed to realize that Penn State spent a majority of the game in their lame cover-2 so when Hardy was sitting in a zone, fans were blaming the first/closest defender which was usually King. Tom Bradley admitted that it was a coaching issue rather than an issue with King's play.

    Another small factor that hurt King in the eyes of the average fan was the "unofficial" times Eisen was giving at the combine. Rogers-Cromartie wowed everyone with an alleged 4.27 and became the talk of message boarddom. Turns out he wasn't the fastest corner when the "official" times rolled around, King was.

    As far as his lack of big plays, there's really no disputing that other than to say Penn State historically hasn't put its corners in position to be playmakers but when he did touch the ball offensively in '05, he was electric. Plus Newman hasn't made a lot of big plays for the Cowboys but I wouldn't trade him for any other corner in the NFL.

    King made a terrible choice in schools to play for in regards to his pro prospects. He needed to be somewhere that would showcase his skills and he's a top five possibility.

    What is the knock on Justin King? Is he not a first rounder? I don't know much about him.
