A rising prospect at OLB in draft Dan Leberfeld

There is a lot of talk about Barkevious Mingo, Jarvis Jones, Dion Jordan and Ziggy Ansah when discussing the top edge-pass rushers in this draft.

But here is another name to keep an eye on – Southern Mississippi’s Jamie Collins.

He lit up the combine.

At 6-3, 250 pounds, he ran a 4.6 forty to go along with a vertical leap of 41 ½ inches (close to a record) and a standing broad jump record of 11 feet, 7 inches.

He had 10 sacks as a senior, but flew under the radar, a little, because his team didn’t win a game.

After his combine performance, Mike Mayock (NFL Network) has him as his second best OLB prospect in the draft.

He could make a nice second round consideration for the Jets, if he lasts that long.
