FYI- The Steelers just signed Justin King to their 53 man roster. Would be nice to see him catch on with his hometown team. Good luck Justin!
Is Derek Moye still with the practice squad too?
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
Dime only please. Every time I've seen king play he gets picked on.
and d-will is on the practice squad?
No way he can be on the practice squad, he has been in the league way to long.
As for Moye, yes he is still on the practice squad. As of this morning as least.
I always thought players like Justin king came to penn state to die with the old regime. It's a shame. He and derick Williams were both better as freshman.
Correct, D.W. is no longer on the practice squad. that was short-lived, as he was let go before the season ever started.
Whats with the downvote? I was simply stating the facts.

Or they were just overrated from the beginning. Both players had ample opportunity to improve and show their talent in the NFL. Coaching means less for DB's and WR's, talent is talent at those positions.

His point was that PSU didn't kill DWill and King because talent can overcome poor coaching at WR and DB. They had time with good NFL coaches and couldn't do it either, so it might not have been the PSU coaching that was the problem.
Ran 4.31 at the NFL combine...Needs to learn how to tackle, but I have trust in Carnell Lake to be able to teach that to him.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
No disrespect , but if you haven't learned that by the age of 25 it isn't gonna happen.
I think he's a past the point of learning how to tackle.
Or what he said. You could probably substitute 20 for 25 and still be fine the vast majority of the time.
Yep, that being said being an Eagles fan Bobby Taylor had a very good career and couldn't tackle a lick.
Lifelong Birds fan, fortunately Bobby didn't have to.
Awesome! Gotta be better than our alternative options
"On paper they have nothing to play for– no bowl games, rankings, or championships– yet they play like they have everything on the line."
No he did have one helluva arm tackle. Looking back he was pathetic. It's funny how bad he was at tackling but he could cover. Other than the tackling part,He could be the type of corner Roof is looking for.
In 2006 King had one of the best seasons I can remember for a PSU cornerback. He was a true shut down corner. He shut down Ted Ginn and Robert Meachem that season. In 2007 he was bothered by a nagging shoulder injury and really struggled.
It is ashamed that he left early for the NFL. IMO we go undefeated with him anchoring the secondary in 2008.
I am shocked King went pro after 07. After what that IU wide reciever James Hardy did to him in 07 it was pretty clear to me and just about everyone else that he needed to stay in school. 14 catches for 200yds or something like that.
Deion Sanders is possibly the greatest CB ever and he probably doesn't have a tackle to his name.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Sometimes it's better to just keep your thoughts to yourself.
I guess he make Bobby Taylor look like a tackling machine.
King's problem was he was playing the wrong position, he should have been WR full time he was the most dynamic playmaker on the team.
“Never trust a government that doesn't trust its own citizens with guns.”
I know people will rage at this but the previous staff wasnt really good at producing NFL talent (for whatever reason). So many guys failed to live up to their draft status, way too many for it to be coincidence.
Justin King...no clue what went wrong. Awesome athlete but never that good at CB.
Rod Woodson and Charles Woodson both were better CBs than Deion Sanders. Both could shut down a receiver and were explosive return men, and unlike Sanders, both could tackle like linebackers, or at least tackle like strong safeties. I also think Darrell Green was a better corner overall than Sanders.
