What is D’Eriq King’s NFL Draft Ceiling?

For the first time, the Miami Hurricanes have themselves a quarterback. In the off-season, D’Eriq King transferred from the University of Houston as a graduate transfer, making him immediately eligible for the 2020 season.

Entering into an offense built for a king, the expectations for King and new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee and through the roof.

State of the U guru Roman Marciante likened King to a Ferrari in his player profile of the Hurricanes starting quarterback and there may be no better comparison for King. Not only is King one of the fastest quarterbacks in college football, but he’s also probably one of the fastest players overall.
