Dennis Keyes, FS, UCLA

Keyes is an ultra-athletic, lightening quick safety prospect. Keyes has some trouble reading routes from his defensive safety position, but has good enough speed to recover. UCLA's defense has been somewhat of a disappointment this year, but Keyes has been a steady performer. Keyes is another prospect that does not do any one thing great, but he is such a great athlete that many teams will be intrigued. He has stepped up his run support very well in comparison to 2006. Keyes' range makes him very likeable and he will contribute on special teams immediately upon entry into the league. Although this is one of the weakest safety classes in years, Keyes is one of the more athletic prospects at the safety position in this year's draft. He ran well at the combine with a 4.59 forty yard dash. In spite of having a decent combine, he still does not project as a first day pick. Keyes is a developmental player and will likely not contribute early in his career, but with coaching and practice could develop better instincts and have the athletic ability to develop into a superstar. Keyes is a likely early second day pick and seems to be more of a developmental player. He has all of the physical tools to play in the NFL, but needs to work to play with better instincts.
