File this one under “as expected.”

LSU edge rusher Arden Key declared for the NFL Draft via a tweet on Thursday morning. Key, a projected first-round draft pick, didn’t practice or play with the team in a 21-17 loss to Notre Dame in the Citrus Bowl.

Key finished his final collegiate season with 33 tackles and four sacks in eight games played after setting an LSU single-season record with 12 sacks during his All-American sophomore campaign.

Here’s Key’s full announcement post:
