Question Defensive Keys

I am new to NCAA; have a few questions about "Defensive Keys"

What exactly is the purpose/thought behind them?
The defensive key of "shifting coverage" does exactly what?
The defensive key of "run left" "run right" "run mid" "pass" does what?
The defensive key of "key receiver" does what?

Assuming these are presnap options that help the defense? Say it's 3rd and 20 and you think a pass is coming; you'd hit LT plus RS Up, assuming a pass is coming? Is this what these are?

Can you do two at once - key on "pass" and key on a receiver?

Thank you all.

I don't know if you can key on pass and on a receiver. I haven't keyed on a receiver yet and don't know if I will.

As for your overall question, you are correct in that it keys all of the defense to whatever you select.

What it does is take the read-react aspect out of the equation. If you select pass, the players in coverage will play pass instantly on the snap which puts them into position faster and puts their awareness on the pass itself.

Substitute the same for keying on the run, etc.

For me, this has been most useful on obvious passing situations, but some may use it for run as well.
