Shaun King reminds Philadelphia defenders of Donovan McNabb, the quarterback the Eagles face every day in practice. King has more in common with McNabb than being a fellow member of the quarterback class of '99. Neither is a typical pocket passer, both are considered playmakers and they're good friends. That friendship will be put aside when the Eagles play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today in an NFC wild-card game.

Shaun King had expected to rely on his business degree to get work when he leaves Tulane. He might not need it for a while. King is now one of the hottest quarterbacks in college football and counting on a career in the NFL. He has gone from struggling freshman to savvy veteran, and the Green Wave has gone from laughable loser to undefeated fame. "No player in the country has meant more to his team's success than Shaun King," coach Tommy Bowden said before he left for Clemson.

This is home country for the kid. And the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had always been his team. His formative years were their formative years. His heroes were their players. He loved James Wilder and Steve Young. And, as he gravitated toward the quarterback position, he focused on whomever was throwing the ball for the men with the skull and crossed cutlasses on their helmets. Soon, the kid was preoccupied with his own dreams. He played quarterback so well at Gibbs High in St.

If the 1999 NFL draft does not produce one quarterback in the same class as Dan Marino--or even Ken O'Brien--it will nevertheless be remembered as historic. Three--and possibly four--African American quarterbacks are expected to be drafted in the first round.
