    Link? I have shown draft projections for '17 saying King was a 2nd or 3rd round pick. He went in the 5th.

    Weak troll game to kick off a Monday @CyTwins

    If you think I'm trolling by saying his stock dropped from last year you don't know what trolling means

    He was projected as a 2nd rounder this year. Gonzo is wrong, King never went through the combine, never went through pro day. He was never projected anywhere.

    I don't think you lied at all, just didn't remember accurately is all.

    I honestly think by coming back that Dez probably dropped from a third to a fifth round selection. That is just my opinion. I think the measurables would have always been against him.

    IMO, Desmond King is a classic case of a football player falling. Look at Aaron Rodgers back several years ago. Rodgers was expected to go in the top few picks. Instead he sat and sat through over half the first round until the Packers finally picked him up at Pick #24. I would also add that these NFL Experts let Tom Brady slide all the way to the 6th Round.

    The Draft is an inexact science. Perception becomes reality. Great players slide. Players that will be a bust get hyped into high selections. Anyone remember Troy Williamson, the Vikings picked him at #7 and he was a complete bust.

    The Hype was all going King's way after his junior season. After his senior season, King played in the Senior Bowl and the criticisms started mounting so his draft stock fell. Desmond King ran a 4.5 second 40 at Iowa's Pro Day. That is not all that slow.

    Here is a good story about Aaron Rodgers fall. Rodgers was predicted by many to be the Top Pick in the Draft.

    Agreed, one of the biggest steals of the draft.

    2nd or 3rd rounder, just like I said and like I linked.

    Thanks for teeing that one up for me.

    3rd or 4th rounder. See I can do that too. How can you say his stock didn't fall at all from last year?

    How can you say he did drop? He didn't go through the combine or pro day last year. He didn't get evaluated and projected at all last year. Yoj have no clue where he projected last year, and even if he did project high, that doesn't mean he would have gone there just like this year proved.

    I think his stock dropped from last year like everyone else who isn't a moronic troll. You disagree and I'm not surprised.

    Unless you have a link that shows several outlets calling him a 1st rounder, his stock didn't drop as he was projected as a 2nd or 3rd rounder this year. Just exactly what he would have been projected as last year after a pro day of running a 4.5 and being 5'9" and a nickel safety.

    King isn't 5'9. Like I said, I think his stock dropped from last year like everyone else who isn't a moronic troll. You disagree and I'm not surprised.
