2018 NFL Mock Draft: Tennessee Titans Select DE/OLB Arden Key at No. 25

Has Key jeopardized his draft value too much?

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

With the 25th pick of the 2018 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans select...

Arden Key, DE/OLB, LSU

The selection and write-up were made by troy145:

Key has lost a lot of favor in the draft world due to off-field concerns and an extremely unproductive final season in Baton Rouge. Previously considered a potential top 5 pick, many think he will fall out of the first round. The Titans, however, have a need at the edge and Key’s upside is worth a roll of the dice, giving Key an opportunity to make an immediate impact in new Titans DC Dean Pees’ defense. A return to form from Key would make for great value at 25 for Tennessee.

Pokorny: “I’ve seen so many of these instances where a player’s stock drops, and eventually they are considered a good value pick, but then they don’t end up panning out to be one. Even though No. 25 is lower in the first round, I think Tennessee might be better going a different route with their first selection.”

The Atlanta Falcons are up next, led by BrianB77.
