Landon Collins, S, Alabama

Mock Draftable chart: http://mockdraftable.com/player/4950/

 

Games watched: vs UCLA, vs FSU, vs Louisville

 

The Good:

 

Effective in man-coverage. Probably at his best. 

 

Does a good job of attacking the receivers hands to jar the ball loose. 

  ex. http://fat.gfycat.com/PoliteMenacingJackal.webm

 

Great form-tackler. Nobody is going to confuse his hitting ability with that of Kam Chancellor, but with his good form and understanding of leverage, he'll be able to effectively bring down most ball-carriers, 

 

Very, very smart player. Takes good angles to the ball. Understands where the contact zone is.

  ex. http://zippy.gfycat.com/MasculineSizzlingArachnid.webm

 

Like Collins, Harris is a player who will try to get involved in every play possible. 

 

Breaks quickly on passes in he sees an opportunity.

 

Reads the QBs eyes the whole play and gets the pass deflection.

  ex. http://zippy.gfycat.com/HandySoftGlobefish.webm

 

Decent ball skills and soft-hands to make the INT. 

 

Aggressive as an 8th defender in the box. 

 

The Bad: 

 

Very skinny. 6'1" but only 180-ish. Not sure he can add enough bulk to beat blocker and be an effective player in run defense in the pros.  He's built like a cornerback. 

 

Doesn't have great range. Looks a little stiff. Doesn't posses much in terms of long-speed. 

 

Lacks aggressive demeanor in play-style. Very conservative in deep coverage. 

 

Limited ceiling. I'm guessing he's probably already hit it.

 

Conclusion: 

 

Collins is a solid, yet unspectacular safety who's probably already hit his ceiling. He's a guy who you can comfortable with matching up with against TEs in man coverage and making open-field tackles. He'll likely never be an all-pro level player, but he can be a starter for a lot of years. 

 

Projected Round: 3rd

NFL Comparison: Glover Quinn, DET

One thing about Virginia is they have good defenses. The offense is normally horrific, but the D keeps them in games. I've seen his entire career at UVa and the kid is good. I watched him in person vs UCLA last year. 

 

He had 11 interceptions in his career at UVa, also of note "part of a defense that helped limit the nation's No. 5 rusher (Pitt's James Conner) and its No. 12 rusher (Miami's Duke Johnson) under 100 yards rushing each and their lowest outputs of the season." I like some others on here really want Duke Johnson on the Colts, I thought for sure he would demolish UVa last year and I was very pleased to be wrong.

 

I don't know that he's already hit his ceiling, I don't think he will be a Hall of Famer but I also think with proper coaching he can be a solid pro bowl caliber player.

I'm going to be there when Notre Dame comes to town in September. Not going to be pretty, but at least I can say I've seen Notre Dame play in person.

Dustin, why do you think that he went undrafted? I am pleased the Vikes signed him as an UDFA.

Low-ceiling most likely. He was a guy who was simply "ok" in college. I was probably a little too favorable in my grade (product of group think) but I think he's a nice value is as a UDFA.
