Third and final on the list of potential Davis Mills Backups: D’Eriq King, Miami
One of the most underrated athletes in college football, D’Eriq King, started his collegiate career at the University of Houston, where he absolutely tore up the AAC. King accumulated 4,925 passing yards, 1,421 rushing yards, and even 504 receiving yards.
While also able to return kicks during his freshman year, he caught ten kick returns for 254 yards and even brought one to the crib for a score.
He then transferred to Miami, where he struggled; he put up 3,453 passing yards with 26 passing touchdowns and 634 rushing yards with four rushing touchdowns.
I think he’s one of those underrated athletes that you need to draft as he has the ability to play most positions on the offensive side of the ball, whether that’s QB, receiver, or running back.
I do believe he can be a quality backup when needed. He’s got excellent ball carrier vision, a quick, agile runner with a solid arm. I see him going around the third or fourth round.
