This makes a lot of sense. First of all, Seattle hasn't hesitated to take a chance on a player with off-the-field issues and has had success straightening out some talented, but troubled, players. The Seahawks also are without their second- and third-round picks, so taking a top-10 talent like Key gives them more bang for their buck with their first-rounder. Key could contribute immediately and help the Seattle pass rush as a rookie. With Michael Bennett being traded to Philadelphia, the need for a young pass-rusher is even greater. Thus, Key makes a ton of sense for Seattle. <br> <br>
Key is a fast edge rusher with a ton of upside to develop. He has the skill set to be a high first-round pick, but he comes with off-the-field concerns. Evaluators tell me Key's interviews, background checks, and visits are going to be huge factors in determining how high he goes in the 2018 NFL Draft. Key has some off-the-field concerns that are similar to Tim Williams and Randy Gregory, although not quite as bad as those two. That being said, sources have told me that the 6-foot-5, 238-pound Key loves football and is a hard-worker who strives to improve in the offseason. They said he previously worked with pass-rushing-moves guru Chuck Smith, and that is impressive dedication for a collegiate player. <br> <br>
Key missed the first two games of 2017 and was overweight in the early going. Eventually, he worked himself back into his old form and flashed his sophomore caliber of play before an injury ended his 2017 early. For his year, Key totaled 33 tackles with four sacks and a forced fumble. <br> <br>
In 2016, Key was one of the best players in college football. He recorded 56 tackles with 14.5 for a loss, 12 sacks, three forced fumbles and three passes broken up on the year. Key is a dangerous pass-rusher with excellent speed and the ability to bend around the corner. He flashed a ton of potential as a freshman for LSU, totaling 41 tackles with 6.5 for a loss, five sacks and one pass broken up.
The Eagles may not re-sign Ronald Darby, and if they don't, they will need a replacement. Here is a similar cover corner with great speed and a tremendous ability to run the route and prevent separation. Philadelphia has shown interest in Jackson as well. <br> <br>
Jackson is a bit of a love/hate prospect as some scouts say they see him as a first-rounder and others think he belongs on Day 2 because of playing discipline and size. However, all the scouts say Jackson is extremely fast, so he will be a good matchup corner to line up against speed receivers. The 5-foot-10, 178-pounder is athletic to run the route and prevent separation, but he is a gambler and could stand to play with more discipline for the pros. Scouts tell me that Jackson is talented, but has a ton of issues to work on, and that might include some hard lessons versus pro receivers. Still, he has great speed and serious coverage skills to run the route and prevent separation. Jackson is a track star and is expected to run an eye-popping 40 time that could push him higher. The scouts who like Jackson compare him to Janoris Jenkins, and Jenkins would have been a first-rounder had it not been for off-the-field issues. <br> <br>
Jackson had 49 tackles with 10 passes broken up and an interception in 2017. As a sophomore, he recorded 39 tackles with eight pass breakups and two interceptions.
The Bills could use a corner to replace Ronald Darby, and here they can reunite Tre'Davious White with his collegiate tandem. <br> <br>
Toliver didn't play in the 2017 season opener, but has 11 tackles since then and has been dependable in coverage. Head coach Ed Orgeron wouldn't specify if it was an injury or suspension that kept Toliver out in Week 1, but the strong suspicion is the latter. Orgeron said he wouldn't announce suspensions to avoid giving LSU's opponents a competitive advantage. <br> <br>
Toliver impressed as a freshman and sophomore. Considering the amount of talent the Tigers' secondary has produced, it is a serious statement that he played immediately at LSU. In 2015, the freshman had 35 tackles with five breakups and an interception. As a sophomore, he totaled 21 tackles with one breakup in seven games.<br> <br>
The 6-foot-2, 193-pounder is a big corner who can run. Team sources have said Toliver has a first-round skill set.
