2013 NFL Draft: Denver Broncos select WR Tavarres King in Round 5

Ed Zurga

With the 161st overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select WR Tavarres King, Georgia

The Denver Broncos drafted their second offensive skill position player of the draft Saturday, selecting WR Tavarres King from Georgia with the 161st overall selection (5th round).

King (6-0, 189) had a productive career for the Bulldogs (he spent five seasons there) and is a vertical threat, averaging 19.1 yards per reception with 136 catches. While the Broncos already have perhaps the most dangerous passing attack in the NFL, King can provide a deep ball element possibly from Day One.

King has a knack for getting behind college secondaries -- even talented cornerbacks like LSU's Morris Claiborne, where King was one of the only players to find success vertically. He ran a 4.47 40-time, but his hands and routes are inconsistent. Even so, King has the potential to be the weapon for the Broncos down the line.
