Former Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the 161st overall pick in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft in New York City.
Like many Georgia players in this year’s draft, King was a four-year player for the Bulldogs. He collected 134 catches for 2,536 yards and 21 touchdowns during his career in Athens.
King ranks third all-time at Georgia in receiving touchdowns and fourth all-time in receiving yards.
The Mount Airy native also ranks fourth all-time for single-season receiving yards with 950 in 2012. Along with 950 receiving yards, King hauled in 42 catches and nine touchdowns during his senior season.
King does not have the ideal build for an NFL wide receiver, standing at 6-foot and 189 pounds, but impressed scouts with his speed at the NFL Combine where he ran a 4.47 40-yard dash.
King has the ability to play as a slot or outside receiver in the NFL, and is known for his elusiveness and quickness off the line.
