What scouts are saying:
"Rare start-stop-start suddeness. His ability to change gears instantly gives him a chance to develop into a talented cover cornerback. With more work on technique and overall discipline, Rollins has the physical tools to become a very good NFL starter." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
"Four-year basketball player. Seamless transition to football field as a cornerback. Has point guard's foot quickness and hip fluidity. Plays with balance and above-average play strength. Well-built and competitive. Can be a disruptive press-corner. Has NFL-caliber "click-and-close" ability. Good leaper. Attacks the ball and receiver at high point. Good instincts and overlaps to make plays beyond his territory. Ruined hitches and bubble screens his way. Physical and has a strong desire to tackle. Wraps up receivers and throws his body at running backs in open space. Crowds receiver downfield, giving little breathing room. Has recovery quickness and natural anticipatory traits in coverage." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
"Shows natural transitional quickness, but his mechanical flaws will hinder his ability to gain proper body position downfield. Often allows too much cushion at the line of scrimmage and is raw with his spacing and closing time. Does have press experience, but doesn't make contact off the snap and is unproven jamming receivers at the line. Bad habit of biting on outside moves at the line and giving up inside position due to impatient feet. Too often flips his hips off the snap and needs time to develop his backpedal technique. Green behind the ears with defensive schemes and still learning secondary terminology." - Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com
