The Raiders were the team to draft Key with Madden 23 Coins the 89th pick of the Madden NFL 23 Draft.
Arden Key is an interesting prospect if for no other reason than I'm not sure whether he'll be an edge player or an off-the-ball linebacker league. With a height of 6'6 and weighing in at 240lbs, it's likely that he'll be able to play any position. While watching the three games that I watched I could see that he's physically fit and athletic enough to be able to play both.
Therefore, first of all, any team considering Key must to decide on where they're going to play him before they make an ultimate decision about how much they think they'll value Key as a possible player. I remember doing a detailed analysis on Anthony Barr when he came out, and I think like Key is in somewhat of the same situation. Barr Like Key, looked pretty good running off the edge but ultimately the Vikings picked him as an off the ball linebacker in a 4-3-2.
The same could happen to Key.
For the purposes of this discussion, I'll go ahead and assume Key will turn out to be an outside rusher. If a team chooses to draft Key to play off the ball, that's up to them.
As an edge breaker, one thing about Key that really caught my attention was Key would often use breaks to break free of blocks.
If you have been reading my writings for a while, you're likely to have a good idea of my stance in favor of"rip" movements generally. They are, in my opinion, the most efficient strategy to consistently be able get the hands of offensive linemen away from you and keep them from your path no matter whether its a running or passing play.
Key utilized rip moves in the beginning and often with great results Buy Mut 23 Coins. Even though he's tall, he had great bends that allowed him to really sink the rip moves before he lifted his arms into the air and forced the blockers out of their grip on him.
