Austin King

SELECTED BY SAN DIEGO , ROUND 5, PICK 1, OVERALL PICK 133
OC | (6-3, 299, 5.47) | Northwestern
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Started the final nine games of the 1999 season as an 18-year-old freshman. Started every game in 2000 and all but one (when he played with an ankle injury) in '01. Started 43 of his last 44 games, including last season, when he was honorable mention All-Big Ten and an Academic All-Big Ten selection.

Positives: Gets good position, sustains blocks and has good leg drive. Works to finish his blocks and has quick feet. Moves well laterally and is very flexible. Can get low and bends his knees. Agile, intelligent, passionate and durable. Good short snapper.

Negatives: Doesn't anchor well enough against the bull rush. Lacks strength, especially in the upper body, and explosion. Thick but not huge and lacks the frame to get much bigger. Doesn't long-snap. Short, 30-inch arms.

Summary: Experienced overachiever with good fundamentals who should be a second-day pick.
