According to ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure, Key is "a player to keep an eye on with the Falcons" on Friday.
Key was considered a first-round talent following a stellar sophomore season at LSU that saw him log 11.0 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss.
However, his stock started to slide in 2017 for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, Key stepped away from LSU in the spring to spend a "voluntary stint in rehab" to address his marijuana use. Then, once he rejoined the club, Key was slow to regain his 2016 form after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery.
"He was a shell of what he was," an AFC scout told NFL.com's Tom Pelissero. "His actions have proven to be habitual, and I don't know that he can kick it."
In other words, picking Key at this point is a high-risk, high-reward play.
But with the Falcons in need of pass-rushing reinforcements after losing Adrian Clayborn to the New England Patriots in free agency, it makes sense that they could circle Key as a potential addition if he continues to fall on Day 2.
