What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about LANDON COLLINS: Alabama, 6000, 215, 4.55. Junior entry. Two-year starter from Geismar, LA who has played a few roles at Alabama, including free and strong safety, cornerback, and gunner on special teams. At his best when moving near the line of scrimmage and defending the run and underneath passing game. A reliable tackler in traffic and in the open field, and has shown the ability to anticipate throwing lanes and routes as a pass defender. He played the 2014 season at over 220 pounds and it may have slowed him down a bit and made him a heavy read and react cover man. Versatile back end defender. Consistently in the right position pre and post snap. Anticipates the action and reacts fast. Explosive downhill tackler. Has a strong power presence. Sound tackler in space, will wrap up and hit with force. Soft hands, good ball skills. Shows the coordination and timing to get his hands on the ball. Explosive blitzer off the edge, times it well and can find his way through traffic. Has balance and body control. Shows the ability to recover. Rangy run defender who can reach either sideline. Seems a step behind as a coverage safety. Struggles to play the centerfielder role, may not have the deep range to play a deep half. Moves heavy in man coverage. Has 12 passes broken up and 5 interceptions over his career. 2014 stats: 102 T, 1 FF, 3 INT, 7 PBU. OSR:15/19. First round. (A-31 1/2, H-9 3/8, VJ-35, SS-4.33).
