Keeps his hands set in front of him consistently on his kick-slide, but isn't a real powerful puncher. Doesn't play real long, allows defenders to easily get into his frame and struggles to remain balanced and stay on blocks through contact. Now, he possesses good body control and can quickly regain balance after getting jacked at the point, but you would like to see him be a more physical anchor player at this stage.
Exhibits good initial quickness off the snap in the run game, takes a quick bucket step when asked to seal on the outside, understands angles and can eliminate his man on the edge. Displays the ability to chip at the line and get out to the second level, as well, and can create a real jolt when asked to break down in space. However, doesn't seem to understand who to consistently block and at times seems lost when asked to make his way down the field. Also, has had some medical concerns with his heart that will need to be monitored throughout the process.
Impression: Is a talented NFL-caliber athlete, but needs to tighten up his footwork and learn to use his hands better in order to anchor with more consistency. Has experience at both tackle and guard and may be best suited to play inside in a zone scheme, but either way, he's more of a developmental/upside guy at this stage."
Positive: Nice-sized pass blocker who's displayed flashes of dominance. Blocks with good lean, gets his hands up, and keeps defenders away. Keeps his feet moving, stays square, and seals opponents from the action. Displays the ability to adjust and can hit a moving target blocking in motion.
Negative: Bends at the waist, which adversely affects his balance. Does not show great footwork at left tackle. Struggles to finish blocks.
Analysis: After a fast start to his South Carolina career, King watched his game level off the past two years. He possesses the size and fundamentals to play on the left side in the NFL if he gets his game back on track and improves from where he was two years ago."
Negatives: Pass protection can be inconsistent... Get off can be slow, very inconsistent... Doesn't possess the lateral range to play Tackle... Kick slide can get too wide... Inconsistent arm extension... Overextends, can be slow reaching the corner... Will play a little upright... Looks top heavy, thin legs... Can struggles to maintain balance when changing direction... Can be bull rushed and walked back if he doesn't maintain pad level... Doesn't generate much power... Can be pushed back at POA... Doesn't appear to play with much passion... Early in his college career he had two surgeries to correct an irregular heartbeat."
Jarriel signed on to play football at South Carolina in the fall of 2005 but was ruled academically ineligible. So, he sat out the fall of 2005 before enrolling at Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga., where he was considered a four-star prospect. He started on the defensive line as a freshman in 2006 and recorded 23.5 tackles, including 2.5 sacks, and was ranked as the 40th-best junior college prospect in the nation by Rivals.com.
In 2008, he joined the South Carolina program and started right away at left tackle.
In 2009, he bounced around some staring at left tackle (6 games) and left guard (twice.)
In 2010, he started every game at left tackle.
He also made quite an impression during the week of practice leading up to the Texas v. The Nation Game.
Strengths: Has great size, flexibility and athleticism. Violent and strong with his hands, consistently working to the whistle. Will get on the second level and hunt up a second target. Pretty aggressive, and has a bit of a mean streak when run blocking.
Weaknesses: Not the quickest feet around for an LOT. Can be beaten inside. May need to move inside. Better run blocker than pass blocker. Overaged.
Projection: 6-7th rounder."
