(Singing) I can feel it coming in the air tonight…hold on
(Singing) And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life – hold on
(Singing) Can you feel it coming in the air tonight.
(Wedge stops signing) Can you fee it humans? Can you feel the possibility of a third Collins being scouted by me? A third Collins going in the first round of the NFL draft?
NO! Not that Collins.
I’m talking about Jalen Collins the LSU cornerback!
The latest fad in the NFL courtesy of the two time NFC Champ Seahawks is the big corner. And that is the first thing people notice about Collins – his size.
At 6’1, 204 pounds, Collins seems like the kind of corner the Seahawks would draft but they probably won’t get a chance being that Collins may be a first round pick and the Seahawks don’t have a first. So release the copycats of the NFL to go after this big corner.
Guess how many games this junior started at LSU. 10! Only 10 games. LSU has so much talent they can only play a talent like Collins 10 times in three years. This is probably the reason why some scouts are so skeptical about Collins – they don’t really know what he is.
When scouts talk about Collins they talk mostly about his physical traits. Not just his size and his length but his speed too. This is a physically gifted prospect, maybe one of the best athletes I’ve looked at this year.
Collins impressed scouts at the combine. He ran a 4.48 40 yard dash. But his best drill was the 3 cone drill which he completed in 6.77 which placed him as the top performer in this drill. Which means Collins is quick too.
Collins in comfortable is zone coverage, but for the most part at LSU he was a man coverage specialist. When Collins gets drafted in the NFL I imagine the team that drafts him will want to use his length in man coverage. Doing so may shut down the opposing offenses top receiver. Collins only nabbed 3 interceptions in his career at LSU, so he is not exactly the ball hawking type.
So what do you compare this man coverage specialist that latches on and takes you out to? What Alien Weapon of Destruction is he? Collins is the dubious ScrotumHurtsYouNow Device!
