With their second pick in the fifth round, the Denver Broncos picked 6-0, 189-pound wide receiver Tavarres King out of Georgia.

King isn’t the biggest guy, but that’s why the Broncos have Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. King brings quickness and the ability to reel in the ball over either shoulder. The problem with King in the past has been dropped passes.

In his time with the Bulldogs, King averaged 19.1 yards off of 136 receptions. He had 6 catches for 205 yards and one touchdown in the Outback Bowl.

With some time against former Bulldog alumni, Champ Bailey, King should improve real quick.
