Maliek Collins (DL), Nebraska

6’2” | 311 lbs.

2015 stats:

29 tackles, 7 TFL, 2.5 sacks, PD

Projection:

3rd/4th Round

Scouting Report:

"Three­-technique with impressive athleticism and movement skills, but a lack of play strength to hold up at the point of attack. Collins needs to play for a defense that allows him to play up the field and should benefit from pass rush work with NFL coaching and teammates. Collins should test well which could push him way up the draft board, but his floor is lower than many of the defensive tackles in this draft." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

Video analysis provided by NBC Sports and Rotoworld NFL Draft expert Josh Norris.
