Bio: 
First-year starter who finished 2016 with 69 tackles, one forced fumble and six pass breakups. Made 34 tackles with one interception and one forced fumble as a junior after tallying 53 tackles (three for loss) in 2014. Played three games in 2013 after starting five as a true freshman in 2012, when he made 45 tackles with two interceptions.
Pos: 
Tall, fluid safety best playing downhill. Aggressive, squares into ball handlers and is a secure open-field tackler. Displays good awareness and works well with cornerbacks.
Neg: 
Lacks lateral speed and cannot get out to the flanks in coverage. Possesses average quickness and is slow in transition.
Analysis: 
Keys looks the part but is a limited athlete who can only be used as a traditional strong safety or in a zone system.
