2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern Miss

Southern Miss outside linebacker Jamie Collins has near-perfect measurables. Great height and weight combination, plus long arms and impressive wingspan. Collins is rapidly rising up draft boards after testing off the charts at the NFL Combine.

Still very raw in his understanding of the game. Mind ties up feet too often as he diagnoses the play. Good break on the ball and can close the distance quickly. A good tackler who looks to wrap up the ball carrier all the way to the ground. Flashes some good short area movement skills, quick lateral steps and at his best when he can roam downhill.

Developing in zone coverage and will need time. Has plenty of length and speed to match-up against more athletic tight ends. Must clean up wasted motion and learn how to flip his hips cleanly.

Must learn to play with more tenacity. Has all the natural tools, but doesn't bring A+ effort often enough. Above-average athleticism will garner a lot of attention, but may need a year on the bench to grow into a better all-around player.

Collins projects as a third round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
