Prospect Profiles: S Landon Collins


Summary: Big, physical and fast, Collins is viewed by many as an aggressive, downhill-tackling safety with an intimidating demeanor and the experience of playing and excelling in a Nick Saban defense. He excels against the run, is a sure tackler and possesses the combination of athleticism and physicality to matchup with both receivers and tight ends.

Stacking up: Both Mike Mayock and Bucky Brooks have Collins rated as their top safety, and Brooks says Collins is "the most complete safety that's entered the NFL in years."

Decorated:As a junior in 2014, Collins was voted a unanimous first-team All-American, a first-team All-SEC selection and a finalist for the Nagurski Award, Lott IMPACT Trophy and Jim Thorpe Award.
