Falcons selected LSU CB Jalen Collins with the No. 42 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Collins (6'2/203) was a rotational corner in college, making ten career starts and intercepting three passes. Despite not being a full-time player, Collins had the second lowest 2014 "burn rate" (35.6 percent) among draft-eligible corners. Collins ran 4.48 at the Combine with a 36-inch vertical and impressive 6.77 three-cone time. Smart (28 Wonderlic), plus sized and physical, Collins has drawn Xavier Rhodes comparisons for his press-man skills. Like Rhodes did coming out of FSU, however, Collins has a tendency to get sloppy with his technique and may require hard coaching. Collins has No. 1-cornerback upside, but it may not happen right away. He will have time to develop, as the Falcons have a top corner in Desmond Trufant. Fri, May 1, 2015 08:06:00 PM
