Bears Draft Scout: Arden Key

STARKVILLE, MS - SEPTEMBER 12: Tashawn Bower /

A fit for Chicago Bears?

The NFL combine is more important to some players than others. The NFL combine is going to mean the world to Arden Key. His weight, his explosion scores, his meeting with teams as he explains last offseason and its bleeding into the season will all be under examination. This even will truly decide if he is a top 15 pick, or a second round pick.

That is what happens when the baggage of an ugly year shines over Arden Key. His love for football is going to be the thing most questioned. If he does not want to grow, he is a much bigger bust than Bud Dupree. If he does, his ceiling is as high, if not higher than Leonard Floyd.

It will be on the Chicago Bears to see if he is worth it.  You can bet that they will be meeting with the pass rusher at some point to get a feel for his story.

If they approve, he is the freak athlete who can drop into coverage that could be teamed up with Leonard Floyd to wreck offensive lines. If they do not, he is not going to be on their draft board at all.
